We are delighted to team up with Ellevate, a platform for young footballers to improve their game, track progress and ultimately get scouted.
Their aim is to provide aspiring footballers equal access to professional football training and opportunities.
The app is for aspiring footballers to improve their skills, track progress, gain comprehensive football knowledge and access football related rewards. The platform encourages players to develop themselves through training exercises with the biggest names in football including Emile Smith Rowe, Patrick Bamford, Ben White and Leah Williamson.
The training section of the app is broken down into different segments, for players to work on individual parts of their game:
- Star Quality
Players can watch the pro’s complete the training exercise, practice themselves, and then record and upload their own footage to the app. Players under the age of 18 will have to get parental consent for their footage to be uploaded. Once uploaded, players clips can be seen by scouts from professional clubs, with over 300 scouts worldwide.
The app is not just for players, Coaches are able to set their players tasks and homework to do in their spare time, as well as track and view which tasks their players are doing.
Ellevate have several offers for users, including 20% off at Sports Direct, and 25% off at MGP Nutrition, with more offers which will be added shortly!
