Scholarship Visit to York St John

Scholars enjoy an educational visit to YSJ.  


The Sheffield FC Scholars have enjoyed an educational visit to York St John (YSJ). The players who all combine academic or vocational qualifications with a high quality football provision, participated in a University experience that allowed them an insight into what life may be like at York St John’s. The students participated in a variety of activities including a football based session, strength and conditioning and lecture about the possible courses on offer.


The students were exposed to state of the art facilities at YSJ’s Haxby Road Sports Complex. The building which has two 4G astro turf pitches, strength and conditioning gym and sport barn provides an excellent opportunity for players to continue their sporting education. The opportunity offered students possible options once their Post 16 education finishes.

The day ended with multiple sport coaching sessions, which was provided by the York St John lecturers. Sheffield FC are delighted to have made the partnership with York St John University and look forward to continuing events such as this.
