Nottingham Forest Ladies FC Education Academy

nflfc logoAt the start of the 2017/18 academic year, Nottingham College launched its Nottingham Forest Ladies FC Education Academy.

Players that enrol on the academy will get two training sessions per week at Nottingham College's Clifton Football Centre and will play in the highly competitive East Midlands Association of Colleges Female Football League. Players will also receive strength and condition support to help improve their game even more. Furthermore, cup fixtures and high quality friendlies will be arranged.

The education programme will also be delivered at the Clifton campus and will involve students studying a Level 1, 2 or 3 sports qualification, as well as undertaking FA coaching badges, while also gaining vocational experience in refereeing, coaching and leadership.

Students will be able to progress from this course into work, university or even gain a scholarship to an American University.

For more information on the programme please contact Diane Garfield on diane.garfield@nottinghamcollege.ac.uk
