Our coaching education academy has enabled students to gain employment at premier league academies, coach overseas and access direct links to the sports industry. From grassroots to elite performers, our tutors will provide you with all the skills and knowledge needed to become a qualified, experienced and highly employable.
Each week you will study the theory & practical side of what it takes to become qualified. Observing coach educators delivering specific topics, you will learn the key points and fine detail required to become a professional in the industry.
The students will train daily for two hours and by prior agreement in the gym. All players will then attend classes at either the football club or gym depending on requirements (Functional Skills English and Maths will be available to learners who require it). Games will be played on Wednesday afternoons where you will compete in the college invitation league in both competitive league and cup fixtures.
Training will focus on the technical and tactical development of your own skills and as a team. The squad will work on tactical systems of play and work towards participation in organised league and cup fixtures which will be held on Wednesday afternoons. The delivery of high class coaching will also look to help every player maximise their individual potential as they look to progress through youth football into the senior game. By providing access to the day to day training players will develop not only their technical and tactical understanding but also their physical condition. There will be access to the fitness and conditioning coaching as part of the programme again provided by qualified staff from DFA.
As a full time student athlete, the players’ studies will enhance their knowledge. The academic course will teach them in depth about nutrition, sports injuries and prevention and analysis side-by-side with other educational subjects. This will enhance the overall ability of the player to learn and develop both on and off the pitch, giving them a recognised sports industry specific qualification which prepares the students for a career in the sporting industry. UCAS points are attained which enables entry to University as another exit route.
