After what can only be described as a fantastic 1st year of the Crossbar Performance Academy - BTEC Level 3 Sports Programme we are now recruiting for the new academic year starting in September.
This year the students have had some amazing experiences with visits to the prestigious Marlborough College, St Georges Park, Compton Training Ground (Wolverhampton Wanderers) and Lilleshall National Sports Centre which was also where all our home fixtures were played in the ESCFA Invitation League 3A; the players went on to achieve promotion by winning the league outright.
During the first year we were taken a back by the students progress and willingness to develop as both players and people. The strength & conditioning element of the course was particularly challenging at times and we pushed them hard both physically and mentally with the practical programme but they rose to the challenge, with some players even taking advantage of the top class facilities at HLC and using the gym in their own time.
We are now looking to recruit a further 10 to 15 students (aged 16 to 18) to join the existing cohort for the new academic year in September. If you have a passion for sport and would like to be pushed to the next level within your chosen sport then the Crossbar Performance Academy wants to hear from you!
