Sky Blues in the Community have already been helping Year 11’s decide on their next steps for September 2018, with taster days for the College Football Academies underway.
Sky Blues in the Community work in partnership with local colleges to provide a unique experience for developing young footballers.
In a Sky Blues College Academy you can study for a full-time academic qualification of your choice, ranging from BTEC’s to A-levels, whilst developing your skills as a footballer and representing the Sky Blues in the National Youth Football League.
Being part of the academy, you will have access to quality coaching from Sky Blues in the Community staff, be part of a bespoke national league against other Academy sides, develop as a footballer both technically and tactically and mature as a student being part of an elite environment.
Louise Dennis, Education Manager at SBitC said: “These taster days are a great opportunity for boys to come down and see what it’s like to be a college student whilst being part of a football academy. It’s important to know these days aren’t trials, they are about meeting new people, trying new things and hopefully learning something new.
"We have excellent quality coaching within the academies, which complement the educational delivery within the programmes, which is so important whilst developing as a young adult! We have our next round of taster days in February, so it will be great to see as many as we can attending!”
