Summary

The Level 3 Sport Academies are two year programmes designed to give talented and motivated young rugby players the opportunity to develop their skills, fitness and knowledge while continuing in full-time education.

Rugby Academy seeks to take talented young players and develop their skills to a higher level, whilst ensuring that they continue their academic studies at an appropriate level. Teams compete both locally and against other leading colleges within the Association of Colleges Sport competitions.

We have a new partnership with Wymondham Rugby Club with Director of Rugby Dave Brinton and First team player Ollie Charlish leading our programme.

A typical programme of study for a sports academy student would be as follows:

  • BTEC Level 3 qualification
  • A minimum of 4.5 hours coaching in chosen sport
  • 1 hour strength and conditioning
  • Weekly fixture programme
  • Access to injury prevention and rehabilitation services
  • Nutritional advice/guidance and support linked to academic lessons
  • Additional coaching or leadership qualifications (costs apply)
