The LeAF Athlete Academy offers a brand new and exciting opportunity for athletes aged 13 to 19. We are a unique institution that offers young talented athletes the opportunity to play their sport at a competitive or professional level.
We welcome high performance athletes from any sporting discipline and aim to deliver a true legacy for sport. Our athletes have access to education, sport and a professional support service. The athletes are at the heart of the programme.
If you are performing and competing at the highest level and ready to commit to full time training, the LeAF Athlete Academy programme will increase your chances of success.
The core purpose of the LeAF Athlete Academy is to make the pathway towards High Performance more accessible for young athletes. For too long, talented junior athletes have had to sacrifice their education in order to succeed in their chosen sporting field. The pressure of managing the demands of an elite training regime and meeting academic deadlines have resulted in lost potential, in one or even both disciplines.
Many of our coaches, physiotherapists and sport science staff have been personally chosen for their high level of experience and expertise. This world class expertise is at hand to help guide the young athletes on their journey. Our approach to success is to create a professional culture and provide the most appropriate support network around the athlete.
