    Applied Sports Performance Experiences for Students

    At GCP we deliver applied experience days from England’s National Football Centre, St George’s Park.

    These experience days are aimed at Students from Schools, Colleges and Universities throughout the U.K. The use of these elite sports performance facilities allows us to deliver applied sport science experience days for Students of all levels and disciplines.

    We offer two immersive experiences for students. A full day focused on ‘Intensive Rehab and Conditioning in elite sport” experience and a half day ‘Introduction to Elite Sport Science’ experience.

    On both experiences students have the opportunity to undertake a range of contemporary methods of data collection relating to the physical capability of an athlete using equipment and facilities commonly employed in elite sporting environments.

    "Our gifted & talented athletes at school love the chance to measure their performance. By doing this at St Georges Park each academic year with the group and GCP, we have really engaged further with the athletes"

    James Keenan – Programme Leader Strength, Conditioning and Rehabilitation, University of Derby
    "The experience provided to the students was an excellent example of sports science in practice, demonstrating clearly how the inter-disciplinary teams assess, liaise and programme for an injured athlete to return to play post injury. There was clear guidance of how the team used evidence based practice to support this journey for the athlete, and gave the students a first had experience of how to apply their theoretical degree knowledge in an elite environment"

    Jack Bullock, Curriculum Leader HE & BTEC Sport, Newcastle Stafford Colleges Group
    "Having recently visited St George’s Park for an experience day with GCP, Sport and Exercise Science students from the college were given a fantastic insight into the fitness regimes and processes often undertaken by professional athletes. Specifically, the students were provided with the opportunity to participate in strength and conditioning, sprint training, and access rehabilitation techniques commonly used by GC Performance’s professional staff to manage footballers undergoing treatment as part of the PFA’s rehabilitation programme. The students gained a great deal from the day and as a college we are excited at the prospect of returning in the near future as part of our ongoing partnership with GCP"
