Athletics Academy

The Wired For Sport system was developed to give student athletes a collegiate approach to their education and athletic requirements. We have made it our sole purpose to identify areas where there are ideal facilities, progression opportunities and educational establishments to create an environment conducive to success.

Register your interest for our sports programmes here.

By following a strong athlete education system, athletes will be given the necessary skills to develop and progress fluently from youth to senior level, making the prospects of reaching national and international standard more likely.

We have a strong emphasis on our athlete’s academic study, and believe that all athletes must achieve their full potential to allow them to gain industry skills and knowledge for a career after sport.

Wired For Sport will endeavour to produce a structure whereby like-minded students will work together and achieve together.


The system

The Wired For Sport academy places a heavy focus on the student athlete experience and delivers what it sets out to achieve, remaining transparent and honest in its philosophies and its approach throughout. The ultimate goals for all athletes in our system are to:

  • Achieve grades which will enable them to gain places at any university of their choice
  • Improve as young adults
  • Be ambassadors in their local communities
  • Perform at the highest possible level in their events

The relationship between our staffing team, the educational establishments and the athlete is vital in ensuring that all of these objectives are achieved.

Athletes engage in a unique course where they will be given the opportunity to be full time student athletes two years ahead of the UK norm.

Athletes in our system are given the freedom to study courses whichever BTEC or A-Levels they desire, making this a truly personalised educational programme. All training and support happens outside of the educational programme.

Athletes studying at HCACP will access event-specific coaching, strength and conditioning, and medical provision throughout the week.

Learners are able to access athletic coaching, strength and condition, physio/sports therapy, psychological and nutritional services as part of the support package.

Currently learners across all disciplines are recruited to become a part of the programme receiving these services. Those learners who wish to remain with their regular coaches are encouraged to utilise the support services whilst remaining with current coaches. This has been very successful as this allows for strong networks of trust between our academy and personal coaches.

The provision of coaching has been sourced from highly skilled and qualified coaches who are associated with producing success which has enabled many athletes to progress into GB/England Junior and Senior teams.


Progression performance

Learners on academy programmes have been successful in securing university placements for two reasons:

  1. Being part of an academy demonstrates to universities that our student athletes have the ability to complete academic study in conjunction with strict sports programmes.
  2. Well-run academy programmes carry weight in ensuring that athletes are well prepared for tough training protocols at a senior level.

Student athletes have been given access to an American recruitment tool 'The Athlete Watch', based in the Michael Johnson High Performance centre. Three athletes have been offered scholarships: the best so far being a 95% scholarship leaving £1,000 for the student athlete to self-fund spread over the four year educational programme.

We have been very successful in creating strong links with local universities who are offering our learners fast track and priority entry into the their university systems. Our athletes are also eligible to train with university teams allowing a familiar and smooth transition into local higher education establishments.
