Scholars in York Educational Visit

The Sheffield FC Scholars at Wath Comprehensive School, Maltby Academy and Meadowhead, enjoyed an educational visit to York St John on Thursday. The players who all combine academic or vocational qualifications with a high quality football provision, participated in an University experience that allowed them an insight to what life may be like at YSJ. The students participated in a variety of activities including a football based session, strength and conditioning and lecture about the possible courses on offer.

The students were exposed to state of the art facilities at YSJ’s Haxby Road Sports Complex. The building which has two 4G astro turf pitches, strength and conditioning gym and sport barn provides an excellent opportunity for players to continue their sporting education. The opportunity offered students possible options post their sixth form education.

The day finished with multiple sport coaching sessions, which was provided by the York St John lecturers. Sheffield FC are delighted to have made the partnership with York St John University and look forwarded to continuing events such as this.

There is still time for Y13s to enrol at York St John University . For more information on how to enrol and courses available please  contact
