Foundation programmes on the ball for legend

20 February 2018

Former Sunderland AFC captain Kevin Ball believes Foundation of Light’s Coaches Academy and Scholarships give youngsters the best chance of a career in sport.

The Foundation has recently launched its U18 Prospectus which showcases the charity’s sports and education programmes, including the new Netball Scholarship which will begin in September.

This season has seen Scholars sign for Premier League and National League clubs as well as representing England at youth level, while previous Coaches Academy trainees have secured roles at the Academy of Light with many others set to enrol at University or move into full-time employment when they complete their studies this summer.

“I’ve seen first-hand the successes the Foundation of Light have had on the pitch and in the classroom,” said Ball. “Part of that success is down to the passion they have for teaching and coaching and a desire to be better, is at the heart of everything they do.

School leavers are now at a vital time in their education – the choices the make could have an impact on the rest of their lives and the Foundation can help them make the right one.

“I have no hesitation in recommending Foundation of Light.”

The Prospectus will help teenagers chose the best career path, with the Foundation’s highly skilled and expert coaches and educators providing advice, support and guidance to help them make the next step.

Information evenings will be held throughout February which are the perfect opportunity for 2018 school leavers to find out more about the Football Scholarship, meet the coaching and education team, and discuss their options for the future.

The Foundation will also be hosting open training sessions which will showcase the Scholarship’s coaching style and how players’ training, preparation and strength and conditioning can be taken to the next level.

Further details for the Netball Scholarship will be released shortly.

For more information, download the U18 Prospectus, email jade.royal@foundationoflight.co.uk or call 0191 5515077.
