Student Welfare At The Academy
All students on the full-time programme are registered with a local GP and dentist whilst also remaining registered with their doctor’s back home for holiday periods.
The Academy employs a full-time qualified physiotherapist for football injuries and private medical cover is provided for all players which ensures immediate attention to any serious injuries picked up at the academy. Please note this will not cover for any injuries picked up before joining the academy. The Academy also provides a Welfare Officer and all the residential staff hold the relevant DBS checks and child protection certificates.
During the academic year some optional excursions are arranged. These may include trips to watch live football matches, cinema trips, swimming, paintballing, go-karting, team building, shopping, gyms, ten-pin bowling and many other forms of entertainment. Please also note the players are supervised for all FootballCV excursions but they are allowed off site with parental consent.
The Academy is set-up for players to stay for seven days of the week however if they wish players are allowed to leave the Academy at weekends with parental consent providing they return by a Sunday evening.
The FootballCV Academy caters for three meals a day, seven days a week during the academic year. Over the years we have had many international students catering for different cuisines and any dietary requirements.
Many international students attend coming from a wide variety of cultures. The Academy will always try to cater for religious requirements when possible.
