At the start of the 2016/17 academic year, Central College launched its ladies’ football academy.
Players that enrol on the academy will get two training sessions per week at Central’s Active Football Centre and will play in the highly competitive East Midlands Association of Colleges female football league. Players will also receive strength and conditioning support to help improve their game even more. Furthermore cup fixtures and high quality friendlies will be arranged.
The coaching element of the academy will be delivered by Tanya Oxtoby, former coach at Nottingham Forest and Lincoln Ladies.
The education programme will also be delivered at the Clifton campus and will involve students studying a Level 2 or Level 3 sports qualification, as well as undertaking FA coaching badges, while also gaining vocational experience in refereeing, coaching and leadership.
Students will be able to progress from this course into work, university or even gain a scholarship to an American University.
