Manorcroft United are delighted to announce the launch of 'The Academy' and the 'Foundation Academy' programmes.
The Manorcroft Academy is designed to challenge players identified across the age groups as having potential to represent the club at Youth team and Senior levels or who have the potential to progress into the professional club academy system. The purpose of the Academy programme is to aid further technical development using challenging coaching sessions aimed at advancing players further beyond the clubs standard syllabus. The Academy will provide technical training sessions delivered by the Club’s development team and development partner during school holidays. Through additional training sessions and through games organised against academies and the highest ranked local club sides the coaches will look to work with players across double matched age groups to advance their development.
The Academy coaches will look to organise fixtures against independent provider ‘academy’ sides and where possible will look to compete against professional club foundation sides which will also allow professional club scouts to see players perform in a more elite environment.
The Academy is designed to help Manorcroft develop players to their full potential
and we hope the Academy will help challenge and develop players with a view to representing
the club at Semi Professional level.
The Foundation Academy will be available to all children between the ages of 4 and 6 years of age. Delivered by our Development partner; Active Soccer Egham, children will have access to coaching from qualified and professional active soccer coaches who will deliver the Club's development syllabus specifically designed to help each individual child progress with individual skill understanding. Using fun activities the Foundation Academy will aim to provide an environment which is fun and enjoyable for those children looking to enjoy their first experiences of the game whilst challenging the children that want to progress into playing for Manorcroft in our under 7's teams.
Children will have access to our Foundation Academy kit bundle through our club shop.
The Foundation Academy will run through the football season and will offer children the chance to take part in two sessions per week on a weekday evening (to be set each season) and on a Saturday morning.
Information on when our Foundation Academy sessions will be released very soon so keep checking our website and social media for more information.
