Stockton Sixth Form Football Academy is a great opportunity to
develop as a footballer whilst continuing your educational journey. This is a
brilliant way of aligning both aspects of college life alongside studying 3 A
levels or BTECs.
Students will train 4
times a week on our state of the art 3G pitch under the watchful eye of our
UEFA coaches. Students will study all aspects of the game like never before
giving you the professional experience while also competing in the North East
College Premier League with matches on a Wednesday afternoon.
The College has
outstanding links with Teesside University which offer students the chance to
attend their state-of-the-art facilities and undertake lectures and seminars in
topics such as sports nutrition, sports therapy, strength and conditioning,
biomechanics, sports rehabilitation and physiotherapy.
This season several students have benefited from the
rehabilitation team and attended weekly rehab sessions to aid their recovery.
One player who broke his foot in October is already back training and playing, had
this of happened playing local league on a weekend his season would have been
over. This is a huge benefit and one the students have really appreciated.
Another aspect which students have enjoyed is the GPS and game
analysis software technology. Every young footballers dream of being on TV and
this enables the student to watch, playback and track everything they do like in
the premier league on a weekly basis. It goes without saying that this has
taken many students games onto the next level and it is no surprise that 4
students have already signed for Northern league teams and been starting games
regularly. The College’s link with Stockton Town Football Club is extremely
successful and this season one player has even signed for their first team and
been involved on a match day, which is an incredible achievement with the
partnerships first full season.
We aim to create a holistic environment for young people to
develop as footballers alongside their education. So if football is your
passion, you will not find a better institution and opportunity than at Stockton
Sixth Form College.
