Built on the philosophy and training programme of the Manchester City Academy, City Football Schools has branches in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The team offers training for boys and girls, from 3 to 18 years old to improve their football skills, stay healthy and make friends.
They have a lot of fun in a positive and friendly learning environment, under the guidance and supervision of fully qualified City Football coaches. The team introduces football for young children who are new to the game and show an interest in playing football. Also concentrate on young players FUNdamental movements in a safe, social and fun environment.
Their coaches work closely with parents and carers, allowing each child to grow in self confidence and belief. This results in independent and enthusiastic athletes who begin their football journey with the City Football Schools.
Safeguarding and child protection at City Football Schools includes duties to provide a safe and positive environment. They keep children and other vulnerable people safe from harm or abuse. This principle applies to their staff, helpers, parents, facility staff and anyone else involved in our City Football Schools. The City Football Group takes its ‘safeguarding’ responsibilities (also known as child protection) seriously.
They are committed to: listening to children and parents and promoting their right to be and feel safe. They put children, their needs and their safety and welfare first. They provide the right people to be involved through safe recruitment and training; creating a safe environment for all participants, visitors and staff. The team promotes clear systems to deal with any issues or concerns. City Football Schools applies all the requirements of the City Football Group Safeguarding Policy. They also ensure that we meet all relevant laws and regulations of the United Arab Emirates and any country that we visit as part of the programme.
Those who are concerned about the welfare or a child or the behaviour of a member of City Football staff or any other adult towards a child then can contact the designated Safeguarding Officer (Simon Hewitt). City Football is also committed to helping keep children safe when using the internet. The team guides all to visit the pages of the Emirates Internet Safety Society for advice and guidance for both children and parents.
