When you enrol on a course, you become eligible to sign up to join our basketball and football academies. You don’t have to be a top performer in your sport, you just need to show a genuine interest.
We have great training facilities and a dedicated team of staff who will support you to achieve your ambitions and goals. Our courses are designed to help you develop your practical and theoretical skills alongside vocational development or employment opportunities. At our Hackney campus we can offer you a unique opportunity to be part of our Football Academy or our London Lions Basketball Academy, who are London Regional Champions.
Working in close partnership with London’s professional basketball team, the London Lions, we have developed an elite training programme that gives you access to professional coaches, scouts and specialist sport equipment. The Academy has spring boarded several former students, such as Perry Lawson, Orlan Jackman and Darius Defoe, onto the professional basketball scene.
As part of the Football Academy our students will be trained by East London and Essex football scout, Anton Smith. Anton will provide a training regimen and give you his professional insight into strength and conditioning and individualised skill development. Previous students have gone on to play football at a professional level, and have been exposed to incredible career opportunities by participating in our academies.
Whether your passion lies in playing, coaching, teaching, analysing or you have an interest in sports injuries, we can give you the opportunity to make your mark in this dynamic industry.
You will be able to train in your chosen sport and play representing the college in
national sports competitions, all whilst undertaking your chosen qualification.
