Football College students are provided with a bespoke weekly training plan that includes, Strength and Conditioning sessions, Attacking and Defending focused drills, Possession and tactical based sessions, transition play as well as recovery sessions after games.
We aim to offer outstanding coaching combined with full-time education and other training opportunities, to provide students with a Post-18 pathway for students to progress into the Sports Industry, Further Education and increased opportunities, avenues, and success within their chosen sport.
We will also provide pathways to county level football. In addition to that, we also provide links with semi-professional football clubs in the local area.
