16 + Football Education Academy…

Recruiting now for September 2019. The A Sporting Hand Football Education Academy is for 16-19 year olds. Students train like a professional footballer daily, whilst studying on a Level 3 BTEC Sports course. Both the football and education take place at professional or semi professional football clubs with excellent facilities.

The Football: If you still aspire to become a professional footballer, this is the closest experience to the real thing, with students living the life of a professional player and training daily. Matches are regularly attended by professional scouts, meaning players have opportunities to be spotted.

The Education: Not everyone can become a professional footballer unfortunately. Our course ensures you are fully set up to succeed in the sports industry if you don’t progress into the pro game. Sports coaching qualifications and enough UCAS points for university is what we ask students to work towards.

Exit Routes: Hopefully into the professional game. If you unfortunately don’t achieve this there are many other positive routes you can take in the sports industry such as university, scholarships in the USA, semi-professional football, jobs in the sports industry and many more.

Apply Now: If you are going to be aged 16-19 years old in September 2019 and would like to attend an open trial please get in touch. Following the trial you may be invited for an interview with our Academy Director. If you have impressed up to this point you will be offered a place on the 2019 Academy intake.
