Meridian Sports Club are now proud to offer further education opportunities to boys and girls aged between 16 and 19 years old, at our newly formed Meridian Sports Club Academy.

This 2 year, Full-Time, Btec Level 3 Education and Sports Development programme, held at the Meridian Sports Club, is designed to provide students with a solid academic education coupled with excellent football and sports development career progression opportunities.

Our Academy programme is delivered in association with:

Elite Showcase, an Academy with an excellent reputation and proven track record and whose mission is “To offer outstanding football and education provision that creates pathways to a better future for each student”.

The Jackson Academy, run by Charlton Athletic captain Johnnie Jackson and former Northern Ireland international Mark Hughes.

Loughborough College, a very well established and respected college who have a superb reputation for providing excellent levels of high-quality teaching and training.

Learners at the Meridian Sports Club Academy will study towards the Btec Level 3 Diploma in Sport, providing them with an introduction into the sports sector and a solid foundation towards a career in sport.

As part of the course, students will spend their time working on academic and theoretic elements as well as training on our superb 3G Astro-Turf and bespoke grass training facility. They will also play in Academy League matches under the guidance of our experienced UEFA A and UEFA B coaches.

Areas in which this qualification is extremely valuable include: playing, coaching, leadership, exercise, fitness, nutrition and sports development.

Upon completion of the Btec, Meridian Sports Club and our associates will host exit trials and showcase events providing graduates with opportunities to demonstrate the skills and techniques they have learnt to representatives from professional and semi-professional football clubs and sports companies, with a view to building a career in sport.

Working closely with Elite Showcase and the Jackson Academy, at the end of the course there are also numerous apprenticeship qualifications and USA scholarships which can be offered.
