You Can Do Sport

Enjoy football and want to get involved as a career?

You Can Do Sport offers a sports education and professional football coaching programme in association with Magnus Academy. Open to girls and boys aged 16-18 years, students split their time 50:50 between the classroom and the pitch working towards a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (equivalent to 3 A-Levels).

Based at the brand-new YMCA Sports Village for coaching sessions, students will be taught by UEFA Pro qualified and former Nottingham Forest first team coach and player Ian McParland and Andy Reid. Students will also be given the opportunity to further their education with FA accredited qualifications in both coaching and refereeing.
