The main focus on every Manchester United Soccer Schools course is that all children achieve success regardless of ability. Players will not be scouted on Manchester United Soccer Schools courses. However, we hope that everybody will leave the course knowing how to become a better player.
Manchester United has a scouting network to identify talented youngsters. Players need to make an impression for their local club/team. You cannot apply for a trial through Manchester United Soccer Schools.
It is our aim for every young player to be challenged, to gain success and most of all enjoy training and playing the game. Our coaching staff are specifically trained to pass on how Manchester United play and train their youngsters of all ages and abilities.
It is unlikely that the players will be able to attend our football training camps because of their busy training and match schedule. However we always endeavour to get as much exposure to the first team and the club as possible.
Yes, the majority of players attend without friends and family. Individuals will be placed in groups with players of the same age who are also on their own. The first session of every camp is focused on making new friends. These “ice-breaker” sessions are designed to help all individual players integrate to form a team and also make new friends.
All coaches are UEFA/FA qualified, recruited, trained and developed by Manchester United Soccer Schools. All on and off field staff have been checked by the Criminal Records Bureau and undertake specific course training in order to provide the best possible experience for all participants. Manchester United Soccer Schools and CMT Learning are committed to the safety and welfare of all players attending our courses and have a Safeguarding Children Policy in place. On all our courses there is a minimum of 2 qualified first-aiders. Manchester United also has a Children's Services Officer who is in direct contact with Manchester United Soccer Schools.
Millions of children have access to the internet. It is now central to how they stay in touch with their friends and family. However the internet is also a public place and while bringing many benefits and opportunities, also opens up new risks and challenges. That’s why MUSS has teamed up with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre.To find out more simply click on the logos below:
The residential football training camps are based at private schools or colleges across the UK. More details can be found in the Venues section of this website.

All money has to be kept in the Manchester United Soccer Schools bank and may be withdrawn 5.30pm-6.30pm.
The safety and wellbeing of all players on our football training camps is of paramount importance to us. We therefore restrict visitor access to one morning session per week from 10am-11.30am. This will allow the children to settle into the residential lifestyle and maintain their safety and security.
To find out when the visitor session is for a particular camp, please contact email@example.com.

Yes, we run specialist goalkeeper camps on both our residential English and football training camps and our residential football only training camps. Please visit the BOOK NOW pages to find out when these are running.
Some of our players have very limited English language skills but still have a great time on our camps. The football coaches can easily demonstrate all of the skills and are experienced in coaching children who don't have English as a first language. In 2012 we hosted students from over 75 different countries - all interacting together to improve their communication skills in English.
Players attending our Residential English and Football Training Camps will attend specially designed English language lessons. Our English language teachers are trained to work with students from beginner right up to advanced level. When students arrive at the camp they are given a short English language test to determine their level and ability. Students are then put into small groups (maximum 16 per group) according to their ability. This enables our staff to adapt the curriculum and the lessons to suit the ability of all the students in the class.
We also have a specially designed football-themed curriculum - to find out more please click HERE.
