GOSPORT BOROUGH FOOTBALL CLUB CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE PROGRAMME (GBFCCOE).
This programme, in conjunction with Gosport Borough Football Club (GBFC), is designed for footballers who are looking to progress as a player into a Pro/Semi-Pro club, a Scholarship in the USA, or onto a university degree course in the UK. The whole programme is between two and three years long and combines lessons with training and fixtures so that the course that you are studying will be a part of your development as a player.
Together, we aim to help players achieve the highest standard of football possible. Possible exit routes from the St Vincent and GBFC Elite Football Academy are: into professional and semiprofessional Football Clubs though our links within the game; onto a US Scholarship where you can play and learn at one of the universities or onto a degree course at a UK university to study any sport-related degree.
Football: GBFC will deliver over 12 hours of first class football training as part of the Elite Football Academy Programme. You will compete in fixtures, which provides a high-quality experience for 16-19 year olds on the pitch.
Education: This can be completed alongside L2 or L3 Sport and Physical Activity.
As this is an Elite Football Academy, before being accepted onto this programme your footballing ability will be assessed by Gosport Borough Football Club.
