Crawley Town Community Foundation are back in February with their fun-packed Soccer Schools at The People’s Pension stadium. Children aged 5-12 can experience a day in the life of a footballer; playing fun packed games to develop their skills and have the opportunity to make new friends with similar interests. There are plenty of medals and trophies up for grabs including the prestigious Player of the Week Award. All Football & Schools Development sessions are up and running again, with all now available on our newly updated online booking site.
The Crawley Town Community Foundation’s Post-16 Football & Education Academy has returned from its winter break determined to continue with the fantastic start everyone made in the first term.
By the end of January, all students will have sat their first exams of the year in subjects, such as, Anatomy & Physiology, Sports Development, Sports Business and Fitness Training & Programming. The students have been working very hard on revising and researching the subjects and staff have been impressed by the endeavour that they have all shown.
Away from the classroom, the students have been put through their mid-season fitness tests and we’ve seen some fantastic improvements from the vast majority of students. Players were put through 13 fitness tests, including a range of 1 Rep Max tests in the Crawley Town first team gym, speed and agility tests and the dreaded Bleep Test!
Last week the Foundation Academy’s new recruits came together for the first time and played in a very high-level, in-house game. The new recruits have all been playing high-level local football, some for professional academies, prior to agreeing to join the programme next September, and all the prospective students are targeting GCSE grades of 5 or above so that they can access the BTEC Sport Level 3 course, equivalent to three A-levels, next September.
