What happens at the residence/hotel in the evenings?

Upon return to the residence, the players will go for their evening meal. This will be followed by an evening activity which will be run by the Manchester City coaches for three of the nights and by the BSC Activity Team for the others. At approx. 8pm they will return to their flats where they can relax in their flats common room before bed time.

If the child has a mobile phone, they will be able to use this in the evenings once they return to their living space. 

Will my child be permitted to leave the residence/hotel?

Can I stay with my child at the residence?

No. Our fantastic group of team members will be there to cater for all of your child’s needs throughout the programme 24/7. We ask that all parents stay off-site to ensure the heightened independence of the players during the programme. Parents will be welcomed to the awards ceremony at the conclusion of their child’s programme. Should a parent/carer wish to book a hotel for the duration of the programme, once their child’s booking has been made, a member of our sales team will be happy to help find the best option.
