Our Sport courses benefit from both outstanding facilities and industry knowledgeable staff.

 

Would you like to be a fitness instructor? A self-employed personal trainer? Or want to go far in the world of football, either as a player or coach?

 

Students enrolling on the Level 3 Sport study programme will have the opportunity to choose between studying for a general sport qualification or specialising in football.

We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Reading FC.  Our strong links with professional sports clubs and people mean you will benefit from inspiring talks and workshops from guest speakers to ensure you learn the very latest techniques. This link provides our students with the chance to undertake work experience at the Madejski Stadium and train at The Dome – the club’s superb £1 million indoor training centre.

Recognising that not everyone will make a career out of simply playing football, we also give all students the opportunity to gain a F.A. Level 1 coaching certificate, a gym instructor’s certificate, personal training certificate and a stewarding qualification.

3G football pitch

In conjunction with the Football Foundation we have created the most advanced 3G football pitch currently available in Buckinghamshire. The full-size facility includes the very latest surface treatment, a hardstanding viewing area, perimeter fencing, floodlighting and dedicated changing facilities. The project was completed during the Summer for use by the college and the local community.

The pitch was officially opened in May 2017 by Lawrie Sanchez – see the opening here

 

Interest in the 3G pitch has been overwhelming since completion and local football clubs, schools, Universities and our own students use the pitch from 9am to 10pm each and every day.  If you are interested in using the pitch please e-mail 3gpitch@amersham.ac.uk or call us directly on 01494 585332

 

Advertising opportunities
Perimeter advertising opportunities are available to provide a strong and effective platform for any business looking to raise awareness of its brand. An estimated total of 36,000 footballers will be exposed to advertising messages around the pitch per year – plus guests and spectators.
