The first of the trials for the Club Doncaster Foundation’s Football Academy have taken place this week with young people invited to Doncaster Rovers’ training complex Cantley Park to take part.

 

All new students who begin studying with the Club Doncaster Foundation in September were invited to the day, with over 30 new starters in attendance hoping to secure their place with the Foundation’s Football Academy first team.

 

The day gave the students a chance to test out the fantastic facilities studying with the Foundation offer, whilst allowed the trialists to test their football skills in professional surroundings.

 

Already highly successful, the Foundation’s Football Academy play in the Association of Colleges League, where they finished as runners up last season.




 

Speaking about the day, Sam Parkin head of the Academy said: “The day was a huge success and very enjoyable for the new students enrolling with us in September.

 

“It was great for them to be able to visit the first team training ground and showcase their football skills on a big stage whilst engaging in the whole Club Doncaster set up.

 

“As coach of the Academy I have seen a lot of talent and potential during the trial and I can’t wait to start working with everyone as we look to build on the successful two years of the Football Academy so far.”

 

Studying with the Club Doncaster Foundation enables young people with a passion for sport to represent their local football and rugby team Doncaster Rovers and Doncaster RLFC alongside their academic studies.

 

The Club Doncaster Foundation offers a variety of BTEC Sport Education courses and young people a pathway to University, with the course designed to provide individuals with the knowledge and understanding of a number of science based and sport units.

 

Learners are able to study at the state of the art classrooms and 3G astro-turf pitches boasted by the Keepmoat Stadium to offer both theory and practical sessions and many of the successful graduates from the Foundation have gone on to gain future employment in a field of sports jobs.
