    Student player, Julian, 2018-2019 season

    “I had a fantastic experience at IH Manchester. From the day that I arrived all the coaching staff were very welcoming and approachable whenever a problem occurred, there was always somebody around to help. Training 5 times a week with each session being different to the other really improved me as a player and made the team feel like a family. The Use of technology at IH Manchester let us look back at our individual performances and discuss these in classroom conditions with the coach to see in what areas we had to improve and where we did well. We could also take these clips and send them to our Families back home to enjoy. We were also given opportunities to display our skills to Scouts and Coaches from the Manchester region which motivated everyone in the team to work hard.”
