St Georges ParkPosted on: 13/03/2019
At the start of the month we took 33 Lancaster Students studying either GCSE P.E/ Health and Fitness to St George’s Park, the home of England football. The students on the trip were outstanding and very enthusiastic when taking part in all planned activities. The students walked in the shoes of an England footballer for the day with exclusive use of the facilities. They completed a tour of the grounds and the facilities before completing a FIFA 11 dynamic movement session with some of the England coaches. They then experienced the fitness suite looking at strength and conditioning activities before completing an hour and a half football based session. To aid recovery the students finished with a one hour hydrotherapy session to remove ‘waste products’ to aid recovery. The coaching staff commented on how enthusiastic and attentive our students were throughout and were a credit to the academy.
