United Soccer School in Derry

The world famous Manchester United Soccer Schools has announced that it will be coming to Derry in 2011, to host a two-days Player Development Course.

The popular course, which will be held at University of Ulster Sports Pavillion (Duncreggan Road), is open to all football fanatics, aged between six and 16 years old, and promises to challenge each player to ‘Learn to Play the United Way.’ Using state of the art training equipment and offering world class coaching, the Derry course will kick off on July 20th to 21st.

As well as developing skills with some of the best coaches in the UK today, one lucky player from the Derry course will be invited to attend ‘Champions Day,’ a celebration event for those young players who excelled at the Player Development Courses around the UK. The selected individual will get the opportunity to play on the pitch at Old Trafford and take part in an exclusive training day with the top coaches at Manchester United Soccer Schools. Attendees of the course will also be in with a chance of winning tickets to see Manchester United play in a Premier League home match.

Manchester United Soccer Schools offer aspiring players of all abilities the chance to develop fundamental football skills. Equally as important, children also learn vital ‘life lessons’ relating to attitude, behaviour, communication, discipline, enthusiasm, fair play and the benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle which will help them both on and off the pitch.

Emma Savage, Head of Manchester United Soccer Schools, commented: “Every year we have so many passionate young footballers attending the Player Development Courses in Derry. The two-day course offers children so much more than just football training and to see children develop their confidence is incredibly rewarding for everyone involved.

“Since 1999, we have built a programme of Soccer Schools that promote a lifelong passion for the game, which is why we have players returning year in, year out.”

At a cost of £69.95, the two-day Player Development Course includes expert training from UEFA qualified coaches from Manchester United Soccer Schools, use of state of the art training equipment and a player diary to help monitor progress and ongoing development.
