The Albion Sports Academy


The Albion Sports Academy

In his own words

Name : Jermaine

Age : 15

Sport : Rugby

I have gained rugby skills and a chance to prove I can play for the academy from taking part in the sports academy.

I originally wasn’t planning on playing rugby until I joined the sports academy.

It has also gave me the opportunity to do 2 weeks work experience at the foundation.

I would like to develop my rugby skills and my overall sports knowledge, I am hoping to play for Salford’s academy before I finish the scheme therefore I can carry on working in a professional sporting environment such as the AJ Bell stadium.

Whilst being in the sports academy we have took part in physical activity sessions and BTEC level 2 theory lessons gaining sports knowledge throughout the scheme.

We have also been taken out on trips to places like Chill factor, Trafford centre (Laser Quest) and many more.

I mostly enjoyed going ‘Challenge 4 Change’ and ‘Jump Nation’

He is currently being watched by Red Devils scouts with the hope that he will enter the Red Devils Player Pathway in 2016."
