Everton's Under-21s and Under-18s touched down in Austria on Sunday afternoon to begin a six-day warm-weather training camp.
The young Blues arrived at Obertraun National Sports Centre, where they will also work at high altitude in a bid to get ready for the new campaign.
Leaving Finch Farm at 6am, the players flew from Manchester to Munich before travelling to the picturesque base via coach.
David Unsworth has taken charge of the Club's second-string for the trip following the departure of new Hibernian boss Alan Stubbs, while Kevin Sheedy leads the Under-18s fresh from winning the league title in May.
Last month, 15 players signed scholarship forms and all except the injured Michael Donohue make the trip.
The Club have frequented the mountain village of Obertraun often in recent years, with the first-team also regular visitors to the popular Alpine facility.
The first-team are due to return to Finch Farm next week ahead of their own overseas training schedule. Players involved in the World Cup will reconvene at later dates.
In the meantime, evertonfc.com will be with the young Blues throughout their stay in Austria, bringing daily updates and videos via evertontv, the Club's YouTube channel and other social media platforms.
