At BBG Academy, we pride ourselves on creating an environment in which students are actively encouraged to participate in sport, inspired by the benefits and rewards which subsequently arise through their involvement. Our group of coaches are very experienced and deliver superb coaching sessions, supporting students physical, mental and social development. We strive for sporting success and achievement, but foster a culture of participation and development through regular extra curricular training sessions across a busy week.
As our reputation is growing across the north and nationally as a sports hub, our fixture list has developed hugely.
Our expectations of our students are incredibly high and whilst supporting our students in meeting with the high academic expectations placed upon them, we provide our students within our sports programmes with an abundant access to training and fixtures.
Commitment to the sports programmes once selected for one of our Sports Academies is outlined early on in the students journey through the sports pathways at BBG Academy. Once part of the Sports Academy’s, the students commit to morning Strength and Conditioning Sessions, Breakfast Clubs, Netball or Rugby Applied Resilience (Games) training sessions, Leadership Clinics and Video Analysis Sessions.
We are very proud of our close links with The Birkenshaw Bells Netball Club and with Morley Rugby Union Football Club who provide our student athletes with regualr competitive sport outside of the school curriculum.
