At the beginning of the academic year the coaching and education staff will create a suitable timetable which will incorporate both training and education aswell as match days. The timetable will be meticulously planned so each player has enough rest time between training and matches to enable them to perform to their best at all times.
Over the week the students will train/play for roughly 10 hours. In addition to the on pitch ball based work, they will participate in strength and conditioning sessions on and off the pitch. Each player will be provided with a booklet of exercises that they should be completing in their own time to maximise their potential.
There will be a competitive fixture list which each student will have the opportunity in being involved with providing they are up to date with education. We will also be playing against elite academies across the country to give you extra chances to challenge yourself.
Training sessions and match days will be led by Academy ladies head coach, who's experience extends to 17 football seasons within the ladies pyramid structure - Andy Ingle. In addition to the top level coaching that Andy will provide, guest coaches and current players will visit the academy to deliver exclusive sessions, including England international and developer of the JP11 Academy - Jo Potter.
Based on their GCSE’s and ambitions, each girl that comes onto the program will be enrolled onto one of our BTEC courses in sport. The qualification is nationally recognised and providing they attain suitable grades throughout the course, they will have the opportunity to apply for University. Students which didn’t pass English or Maths at GCSE level will be required to retake these exams however they will receive regular support classes to enable them to do this.
To ensure all students stay up to date with their work, the tutor, Andy Leith, will keep in daily contact with the coaches and whenever necessary the players will be excused from training and matches to get back up to date with their work, however, this is not a regular occurrence at the JP11 Academy as we ensure all work will be completed on time.
Parents will be kept up to date with how their daughter is doing and there will be a number of review meetings between parents, players, tutors and also coaches during the academic year. Coaches and staff are available at any time for any enquires.
