Duchy College and Plymouth Argyle (PAFC) are holding a trial day for potential recruits on their Football Education Programme at Duchy College, Stoke Climsland on Monday 21st August 10am – 1pm.
The Football Education Programme, based at Duchy College Stoke Climsland, covers all aspects of the professional game from nutrition and fitness to injury analysis and coaching. The students also receive training sessions from a Plymouth Argyle coach and are able to further develop their skills by undertaking work experience at Argyle’s Home Park stadium. Those who complete the course could progress into a number of key areas in sport and fitness to include coaching, nutrition, injury prevention, teaching or further study.
Team Lead for Sport and Outdoor Adventure at Duchy College, Darren Evans, said the Plymouth Argyle Football Programme at Duchy College is in its second year and “has proven to be a very popular course for learners who not only love football but want to develop their future career options when pursuing University courses or seeking employability in the sports industry.”
“The students on the course get to train and play football three times a week during their four day a week academic programme and also have the added opportunities such as practical sessions at PAFC and work experience with their community coaches”
The football trial day will be an opportunity for the players that are attending to receive expert advice and coaching, with the option to enrol on the Plymouth Argyle Football Programme at Duchy College.
