Manchester United Soccer Schools at boreatton park for secondary schools

Inspiration from the top

Football: our national sport;
Manchester United: a world-class club;
It’s a combination to inspire any young player, and it’s exclusive to PGL.

So, what could be better than spending a weekend training with the Manchester United Soccer Schools coaches?

There’s expert skills training and the chance to play in a tournament as well as the added bonus of teambuilding and leadership development with PGL adventure activities.

The coaches use the same programme as the Manchester United Academy. There’s even the chance for your players to be picked to attend ‘Champions Day’ at Old Trafford; they’ll tread the turf, play a match kitted out like a pro, get exclusive behind the scenes access to the stadium and enjoy a packed day of once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

MUSS weekends are open to boys and girls in Years 7-9 (S1- 3)



The MUSS Training Programme focuses on developing a range of techniques and movements as well as strong personal skills to deal with life on and off the pitch – every player is challenged to learn new skills, “the Manchester United way”.
