Students may wish to bring some money to buy souvenirs, Manchester United merchandise, extra drinks/snacks. All money has to be kept in the Manchester United Soccer Schools bank and may be withdrawn 5.30pm-6.30pm.
Can I watch my child during the camp?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I stay on site with my child?
There is no accommodation for parents on site. Please contact email@example.com for a list of local hotels.
Are there specific Goalkeeping courses?
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.
My child's English is not very good - is that OK?
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.
What type of visa do I require?

What happens if I don’t get a visa in time?
