Team East Durham - Elite Scholarship Programme
« on: August 03, 2015, 04:50:32 PM »
Spaces still available to join East Durham College Elite Rugby Scholars Academy in September 2015 - The academic programme the players will study is a BTEC Diploma or Extended Diploma in Sport (Performance & Excellence in Rugby) which is a Level 3 programme, equivalent to two or three A Levels respectively (Completion could produce enough UCAS points to progress onto University).

The Elite Athlete Scholarship Programme Offers:

Full training kit
Free Laptop Computer
Assistance with travelling expenses
Expert coaching and guidance from the Academy personnel
Performance analysis support
Sports science support services
Prehabilitation
In-house physiotherapy service
Sports nutrition
Gain coaching or officiating awards
Links with professional clubs and universities

Entry Requirements:

Four GCSEs at grade C or above (preferably including English Language)
Must be aged 16 or 17 on or before 1st September
Scholars should be of county standard or above; otherwise selection is via trial and/or the Academy Coach’s recommendations

Recent achievements have seen Team EDC Rugby compete in the 2015 AOC National Plate final and individual player success at National Level.

Places on the squad are available for learners who are enrolled on other academic programmes - more information can be found here: http://www.eastdurham.ac.uk/rugby_academy

Applications should be made via www.eastdurham.ac.uk or can contact me directly on 01915182000 or craig.gilmour@eastdurham.ac.uk after 18th August 2015.

Enrolment for the programme takes place from 25th - 28th August, however, I am happy to meet with anyone prior to this to have a chat and answer any questions.

I've kept this in here as it is specifically to do with Junior Rugby...

Is this course quite popular nowadays?

I see Gateshead College regularly advertise something similar?

Yes, very popular its a ideal opportunity for those to play rugby and continue to study. It benefits the players and the clubs

Look at the success story's from East Durham alone.

David Wilson - Bath and England
Katy McLean - DMP and England
James Fitzpatrick - Leeds.
Dan Palmer - London Scottish
Karl Gibson - Ealing

Plus various players representing some of the top clubs in the north east and Durham County.
