Study & Train

Selby Town FC in 2020 are pleased to be working in conjunction with Football Family and All Star Football Academy to provide the opportunity to learn and train within our semi-professional football club.
We will be offering a number of qualifications including BTEC Levels 2 and 3 in Sports Coaching and Development. Each course is designed with a wide range of learning aims, ensuring that upon completion of the course, our students have the skills, knowledge, and behaviours to succeed either in further studies or in the workplace.
Our BTEC Levels 2 and 3 Sport Qualifications are fully funded for ages 16-18 and feature topics such as:
• Anatomy and physiology
• Fitness training and programming for health, sport and well-being
• Professional development in the sports industry
• Sports leadership
• Practical sport
• Sports development
• Planning and running a sports event
The courses will provide a combination of classroom tuition, coaching with professionally qualified coaches including former professional footballer Christian Fox through the All Star Football Academy, and Maths and English qualifications for those requiring them.
Students will be part of a team and have the opportunity to play in matches against other students of a similar age.
Students will also be given the opportunity to gain experience with Selby Town Football Club, this could involve assisting with the ground-keeping, helping with the smooth running of match-days, working on social media, and taking part in community events. Being able to train and gain experience at a semi-professional football club by qualified coaches is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to find employment within the sports industry, and is something not offered by college based institutions.
Our BTEC courses can be used toward UCAS points needed for Higher Education courses and could potentially lead to further studies and employment in roles such as sports therapy, sports media and journalism, fitness instruction and training, as well as potentially playing professional football.
