Our Dual Careers Academy will be supporting the opportunity for ‘student-athletes’ to reach their full potential.
Our philosophy is that the ‘student’ always comes before the ‘athlete’ and with that in mind, Yeovil Town Ladies FC and Bridgwater and Taunton College are able to offer an outstanding education, with a fully integrated training programme, for elite female footballers aged between 16-21.
Our Dual Careers Academy players can study any academic course, whilst training and playing alongside other elite female footballers, some of whom are international standard athletes, whilst also receiving a whole range of support in the way of Sports Science, Medical and Wellbeing.
Our aim is to ensure that each individual reaches their full potential, both academically and in sporting excellence.
