The second trial for our new football education academy will take place on Tuesday 20 November from 6.30pm to 8pm at the DWB Stadium.
Boston Town have teamed up with A Sporting Hand to give 16- to 19-year-olds the opportunity to join a full-time football education academy that mirrors that of a professional club.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to study towards a BTEC Level 3 in Sport qualification, while training like a professional. The course is government-funded, meaning students don’t have to pay anything to enrol on the course.
Outside the classroom, students will train four days a week and play in the English Colleges League on Wednesday afternoons, as well as taking part in showcase matches against professional academy sides. Students will receive academy level coaching from experienced A Sporting Hand coaches.
Students also complete a Level 1 football coaching qualification, which opens up work experience opportunities.
More information about the course can be found through the A Sporting Hand website. You can also reserve your space for the trial through the website too.
