SPORTS ACADEMY PROGRAMME

Our post-16 sports academy is our flagship programme which addresses some of the major concerns regarding health and education in young people. We are tackling these issues through our provisions of structured and inclusive sports activities (football, basketball and cricket in particular) in an educational environment, encouraging learners to stay active and to maintain a full-time level 3 study programme alongside their sporting activities.

Students enrolled on this programme receive weekly sports training and matches, while studying towards an accredited qualification after which, university, employment and an accomplished career are all viable options. 

Our academy is run by industry professionals and provides the best foundations for young people to learn and maintain healthy and sustainable physical activity levels, improving physical and mental health.

Via links with leading semi pro and pro clubs, Universities and UK and overseas scholarships, we provide numerous opportunities for post-16 progressions into the sports industry, higher education and employment.

We provide continued support to ensure our students have a clear pathway leading up to and once they have completed our programme.

OPEN ACCESS TO SPORTS PROGRAMME

Our OACS project enables deprived young people to access free sports provisions and activities. Our structured community sessions provide a safe, fun, educational place for 5-16 year olds to develop, to build friendships and self-esteem, and fosters a sense of belonging and community and societal value.

Via this project we are tackling physical and mental health and loneliness in young people.

This programme supports communities with high rates of crime, violence and social exclusion, by providing activities during times of the day where antisocial behaviour is rife including the period between school finishing and parents arriving home from work.

HOLIDAY ACTIVITY PROGRAMME

This community programme benefits local families and young people aged 5-11 from homes of low income where joining extra-curricular activities or having regular nutritious meals during out of school periods poses challenges. We aim to relieve some of that stress by operating a safe environment for young people to socialise, be active and have at least one nutritious meal four days per week during the school holidays.
