The program is a 2-year course that combines Elite football development with a 2-year BTEC course in Sports Studies or an A-level programme. The development squads will shadow the schedule of the Youth Team, with opportunities to step up and play Youth Team football. The field sessions will take place on state-of-the-art 3G astro-turf pitches and will be coached by UEFA qualified staff currently working within the Barnet FC Academy.
Where will I study? Unlike similar programmes, all on-field sessions will take place at The Hive, Barnet FC's multi-million pound training facility based in Edgware, North London. The education programme will be delivered by both Barnet F.C and our education partner Canons High School; an Ofsted outstanding school. Canons is situated no more than a 3 minute walk from The Hive and provides a fantastic education programme.
Education Programme: The course covers a variety of elements which include; anatomy, physiology of fitness, fitness training, sports coaching, fitness testing, technical/tactical skills in sport, sports nutrition, psychology for sports performance, performance analysis and talent ID. Schedule Players will get a full time football programme including fixtures in a competitive league and/or against professional development squads.
This trial is suitable for students entering Year 12 (First Year College Study) in September 2017.
