Peterborough United would like to invite all females in year 11 & 12 to our Female Futsal Scholarship Open Evening/Trial at Nene Park Academy.

The evening will be taking place in The Main Sports Hall and in an Education setting on Thursday 29th January 2015 starting at 4.30pm and finishing at approximately 6.30pm.

Futsal Trial- Main Sports Hall: 4.30pm-5.30pm
Education Presentation- Classroom: 6pm-6.30pm

Our Female Futsal Scholarship aims to provide a structured and supportive environment where students flourish and develop the skills needed to go on to be successful in their chosen careers, training and/or Higher Education. The BTEC Level 3 in Sport is a specialist work related course developed to cover core elements of sporting performance and excellence such as anatomy, physiology, psychology, coaching, analysis and technical and tactical development.

This course particularly suits those wanting to enter employment in the sport and active leisure sector as sports coaches, instructors, leaders etc.

For those wishing to progress to higher education students will have an opportunity to complete a two year foundation degree (Sport Development with Coaching) through the Open University while being mentored by senior Peterborough United staff. This will see the learners finish the course with a UEFA B coaching qualification and potential for employment opportunities within the club.

As part of the course students will be required to complete work experience in a variety of sports settings, as well as performing various roles within the organisation of sport events: this will include refereeing and officiating roles. This knowledge and experience will allow for further progression within seeking employment and/or higher education options.

The evening will provide an opportunity for both students and parents to speak to staff about the course on offer and to gain an insight into further opportunities available to players.

Players need to bring appropriate clothing, footwear (AstroTurf or trainers), shin pads and plenty of drink to participate in the Futsal trial.

Please confirm your attendance with the Women & Girls Football Development Officer Jenna Dunster via email by Friday 23rd January 2015. If you are unable to attend, please feel free to arrange an alternative time to visit.
