Sports Academy

West London College Sports Academy gives talented students the chance to pursue their sporting ambition while also completing a full-time qualification.

On a Sports Academy programme you will receive a minimum of 10 hours training per week from experienced coaches, as if you are part of a semi-professional club. With the College’s affiliations with local and national clubs, you will have exposure to physios, coaches and other industry professionals. You will have have exclusive access to our private strengthening and conditioning gym. To be eligible to be part of a Sports Academy, you must:

  • Be aged 16-18 (when your course starts)
  • Be enrolled on a full-time course at West London College
    • (Football Academies must enrol on a Sports & Fitness course. Basketball, Boxing and Futsal Academies can enrol on any subject)
  • Attend a trial and pass it. You can register by clicking the links below.

PLEASE NOTE: If there are no trial dates available for an academy, you can still enrol for our Sports courses and you will have the opportunity to join the academy later in the year.
