Abu Dhabi MUSS to feature new stars
Abu Dhabi, September 11, 2011
The Manchester United Soccer Schools (MUSS) in Abu Dhabi has announced its second season for 2011-12 featuring a new generation of stars from United’s English Premiership campaign at Old Trafford.
The 30-week MUSS schedule will have themes reflecting the styles seen from players like Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, a statement said.
Those enrolling for the football programmes taking place at the Dome@Rawdhat starting on October 1 will learn to pass and move, dribble and dominate, and attack with flair the United way, the statement added.
“Everyone who follows the Premiership will have been impressed with the quality of United’s football, and especially the contribution of the new generation of players now emerging at Old Trafford,” said Andy Dixon, head coach at MUSS in Abu Dhabi.
“They are the club’s future, and our second season of football programmes in Abu Dhabi is based on the coaching methods which have helped them develop their skills and techniques, and fit quickly into the team with such great effect.”
The MUSS team in Abu Dhabi has also appointed Craig Taylor as one of the new permanent coaches drafted in from the UK to deliver the MUSS programme in the UAE capital.
With a BSc in Sports Development from the University of East London, Taylor joined MUSS in February 2010 from his previous role as the Education Tutor at Charlton Athletic Community Trust.
More than 800 seven to 16-year-olds took part in the first season of football programmes run by MUSS following its launch in the UAE capital in October 2010 after the signing of a partnership agreement with Reem Investments.
Youngsters enrolling could win a chance to display their skills on a world stage at Old Trafford next year, with all players taking part in any of the programmes automatically being entered in the MUSS series of skills challenges, according to the statement.
Leading point scorers will win an all-expenses paid trip to England to represent Abu Dhabi in the 2012 World Skills Final, with a chance to play at Old Trafford before a Premiership game.
Cost of enrolment is Dh1,650 ($449) for one module, with discounts for those enrolling for two modules (Dh2,700) and three modules (Dh3,698).
A special parents coaching session is included in each of the individual packages, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
