With Manchester City Football Club’s Women’s Team competing at the top level of the FA Women’s Super League and set to compete in the UEFA Women’s Champions League, this is a great opportunity for female players from all over the world to train at the same facility as City’s Women’s Team.

In this programme you can expect to experience the professionalism of the game while learning effective English language communication skills in authentic football contexts, in a fully immersive football and language summer programme for 9-17 year old girls.

Football

In girls-only football training sessions you will develop game-changing football skills and techniques from a top quality coaching team who are highly experienced in Manchester City Football Club’s philosophy and methodology. The coaching team will help you to develop to your highest potential in a variety of authentic football contexts, focusing on skills such as: strength and conditioning, mastering the ball, match analysis, group tasks, individual skills, team skills, improving style, possession techniques, recovery and more.

Football Plus (English)

Your Football Plus sessions focus on learning how to communicate effectively in the international world of football using the English language. Sessions are led by a team of highly qualified language teachers who work closely with your coaches to ensure activities are aligned from one session to the next.  In your Football Plus sessions you will join mixed groups of boys and girls who have a similar level of English as you, giving you a real-life learning experience covering themes such as: diversity in football, media training, player lifestyles, scouting, game preparation, team building, nutrition and more.

Social activities

In addition to your football and English language sessions there is an exciting schedule of social activities and excursions. Every evening, dedicated Activity Teams will organise relaxed social activities at the residence, and on weekends you will have two full-day excursions, including an Etihad Stadium Tour and a visit to the National Football Museum in Manchester. Your activities and excursions will be combined with the boys.

Welfare

The safety and welfare of our players is our number one priority. Whether in the classroom, while training, during social activities or at the residence, we have a dedicated team of staff, including female leaders, who are on-hand to ensure your well-being at all times. With 24 hour supervision and high staff to student ratios, you can be assured that you will be well-looked after throughout your stay.
