The Football Academy will provide the opportunity to take part in a comprehensive football programme designed to develop you physically, technically and psychologically.
Players will have up to five hours a week of football-related activities, which will include theory sessions, coaching, fitness sessions, skills work, post-match analysis and competitive matches on Wednesday afternoons. All students will have the opportunity to train on the purpose-built, allweather 3G pitch and compete for a place in one of our four teams. There may also be the opportunity to access recreational football through the HWS programme. The College expects to enter the first and second team into the Association of Colleges South West league and cup competitions, with the third and fourth team playing in the county participation league, as well as playing in friendly fixtures. There should be over 15 games per season depending on the level of team and success in the cups. Players will also be given the chance to develop leadership, coaching and officiating skills through additional qualifications and experience in local schools and clubs.
