Practical Vs Theory
Develop your football skills and ability through practical learning and regular participation in competitive league matches with teams at your level. You will study at our Borderville Sports Complex, home to Stamford AFC’s Zeeco Stadium, where you will not only have the opportunity to gain a qualification whilst training for a career as a semi-professional footballer, but also recieve your coaching from football industry experts and former professional football players. You will participate in six hours training a week.
Learners will study a Level 2 Diploma in Sport course for 10.75 hours per week, alongside 6 hours training and Wednesday match days. Please be aware learners will be enrolled onto their course alongside their Football Academy commitments so will be required to complete and engage in both aspects
My tutors encouraged me to get real experience writing a sports column for the local paper, I now have a place on a Sports Journalism Degree at University.
