Unsurprisingly our BW PASE trials are again hitting record numbers this year, following our Academies incredible record breaking season.
A record breaking season that saw our first team finish eleventh in the National League. That saw our Academy captain sign for Wolves. That saw our Academy produce another three college ENGLAND internationals. That saw six Academy boys go on to make their first team debuts and, a season in which we became not just the National College Champions of England and Wales, but double National Champions by taking the Conference Leagues ‘Champion of Champions’ title.
With all that success, it was hardly surprising that our first two trials had already hit close to 350 trialists, but we were further delighted to welcome another 80 hopefuls to our third trial at Meadow Park as recently as Tuesday 30th May.
Our PASE Academy seemingly has an incredible reputation and it has grown beyond all recognition since its creation by our Chairman back in 2002. It is a simple concept but it works. We simply gives young talented lads of all abilities the chance to join possibly the most successful sports education programme of its kind in the UK, as long as they show the right attitude, discipline and desire.
Our scheme is also completely free save for a small training kit cost and on top of that we offer a free season ticket to watch all our home National League games. We can proudly boast that we offer the most diverse array of academic courses in the country for this type of scheme and our track record for success in regards to retention and course success rates is there for all to see.
Educationally we can offer a wide range of BTEC, CYQ, Construction and A-level courses. We also offer multiple other courses that are tailor made to give our students a worthwhile academic course that marries up to their training programme. We also have history on our side, we have a proven track record we can point too and we pride ourselves on inclusivity. That means we work around everyone one of our students academic timetables to achieve the success our students need both on and off the field.
