Holbeach United Football and Education Academy
Holbeach United Football and Education Academy (Holbeach United FEA) is a full-time football and education scholarship programme, that is an outstanding place to learn and prepare yourself for the next stage of your career and education.
We pride ourselves on using the power of our semi-professional sports club to put ourselves in the heart of our community. All sessions are delivered by a team of dedicated and qualified education and footballing professionals. You could not be in better or safer hands.
Holbeach United FEA Scholarship Programme works with student-athletes aged 16 to 19 to develop:
- The Player
- The Pupil and
- Their Future
Our mission is to help talented footballers make progress in their careers, whilst continuing their academic studies. We offer BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma (16+) in Sports Coaching and Development coupled with a unique opportunity to train and play football full-time. This is led by qualified teachers, UEFA coaches, strength and conditioning coaches, sports therapists, and performance analysts.
Our education and employment pathways vary across the whole spectrum of the sports industry including USA Scholarships, Higher Education (University), football coaching and PE teaching apprenticeships amongst other sport related careers.
Our footballing pathway is the best around! Our scholars have a very direct route into semi-professional football with our partnering club Holbeach United. The first team manager is a huge believer in youth coming through the ranks and has promised that our scholars will always be given an opportunity.
Our scholars will be tested against the best by competing in the National Youth Alliance, The English Colleges League, as well as the prestigious FA Youth Cup. This is only possible due to our footballing facilities which consist of a full size 3G pitch, 2 grass pitches, a local gym, and a state-of-the-art football education facility.
We also offer unique work experience for learners that wish to coach, as we have our very own Junior ‘Soccer Schools’, high-school ‘Taster Sessions’, as well as our ‘Centre-of-Excellence’ programme.
