Why Worksop College?

Opportunities to grow and develop

We have the sporting and educational infrastructure to provide excellent formal education provision for Academy Players in the Under 17 and Under 18 age groups. This will be delivered principally onsite.

With purpose-built facilities and as part of an integrated, flexible weekly programme, the formal education delivery employs a mixture of fully qualified in-house staff and external experts. This allows the flexibility for coaches to implement a curriculum to suit the particular needs of each academy player.

The full-time Head of Athletic Development manages each player's Strength & Conditioning, creating a training programme that complements and supports development.

 

Sporting Legacy

We have a long history of sporting excellence at Worksop College, boasting talented alumni across a variety of sports. In recent years, this includes three GB Hockey internationals at
Toyko 2020 including captain, Adam Dixon, plus Joe Root, current England Test Cricket Captain.
