A large part of the Manly United ethos is engaging in clubs within the local community and contributing to football at a grassroots level as well as an elite one. We endeavour to bridge the gap to ensure that as many young kids as possible get access to elite level football experiences as well as having fun along the way. With over 17000 registered players on the Northern Beaches, we want to provide as many opportunities in the wider community for kids to play football.
We run a variety of programs including;
Our School Holiday Camps, which we roll out all over the peninsula. We have camps at Seaforth Oval, Kitchener Park in Mona Vale and our world class, pitch here at Cromer Park. Click on the ‘Holiday Camps’ tab for more details.
Our after school soccer program caters for all schools and for kids of any age and all abilities. Our 6 week program is involved in over a dozen schools each term, providing the platform for kids to love football, make new friends and have fun along the way.

The MUFC Academy has grown massively since the launch in 2015, providing world class training programs and facilities to kids and families looking for more. Now involved with 3 MWFA clubs, the academy program is picking up steam. Click the ‘Academy’ tab for more details.
We also run in school sport or our Football4Fun program. We send our football specialist coaches into schools to run programs that give the kids the chance to experience football and develop their ability. With a blend of development and fun, we can run for a one hour a week, or come in for a day to cater to the entire school! Click the ‘School Sport’ tab for more details.
