The programme is aimed at young players of school leaving age, with a passion to play football at a high level, to take academic studies under the guidance of Plymouth Argyle, whilst at the same time honing their footballing talents.
The programme sees 16-18 years olds participate in a number of academic studies alongside a football scholarship run by Plymouth Argyle FC. The programme is designed to give students good academic qualifications that can take them into universities, overseas universities, employment and work places.
In addition to this, it provides young people with the opportunity to train and play as a football scholar alongside their studies. Previous players have progressed into the professional game, climbed the football pyramid and also gone overseas, whilst others have improved on their football ability and continue to play local football.
The programme does not stop players training or playing for their local teams. In fact, it is actively encouraged, and we would like players to stay within local football. The programme would not affect games or training programmes as the course is an academic programme and runs during term time.
Players who are in Year 11 or 12 who would like to find out more information about the programme, please contact Mark Lovell on 01752 562561 EXT.4 or e-mail email@example.com
Plymouth Argyle FC Futsal Scholarship – Cornwall
Argyle Community Trust, in conjunction with the Football League Trust and TVS, offer a unique opportunity for 16 – 18 year olds to gain a BTEc level 3 in sport and play in a competitive National Futsal League based at Carn Brea, Cornwall.
Futsal is a fast-paced, exciting five-a-side game played by large numbers of teams from across the world, particularly South America. Football greats from Pele and Zico through to Ronaldo and Messi honed their talents through this highly skilful game.
The Football League Trust Futsal Scholarship programme is now in its third year giving 16 and 17 year-olds the chance to wear the Argyle shirt and represent their club as part of a two-year course that also gives them the qualifications required to progress to University.
Scholars will study for a B-tech Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport whilst representing Plymouth Argyle in a competitive league competition. With a qualification equivalent to three A-Levels, graduates from the programme are sure to have a bright future ahead of them.
Futsal Manager at Argyle Community Trust, Mike Foley, said: "The Football League Trust Futsal Scholarship programme is a really exciting opportunity for young people who want to get involved with sport and study for a top qualification at the same time."
