Talent ID & Prospective Students
The primary aim of LeAF Studio is to enable student athletes to achieve their potential in both their academic study and their chosen sport specialism. This aim is not limited to LeAF’s current cohort of students – we are looking to the future sports stars too!
LeAF Studio’s Athlete Academy provides outreach sessions in local schools and sports clubs to identify potential sporting talent in children between the ages of 9 – 13 Years (School Year 5 – Year 8).
Outreach sessions include multisport games and activities, anthropometric testing, maturation screening, force plate analysis and other physical tests carried out by the Strength and Conditioning / Sports Coaching Staff. Our staff would then recommend certain sporting pathways to students depending on an individual’s attributes and scoring in the testing. Students who score exceptionally well will be then invited to partake in the Athlete Academy Future Stars Talent ID programme, which will consist of Termly meetings and workshops to help students with their sporting pathways including Sport Science, Nutrition, Psychology and other aspects to sporting excellence.
Alongside our Talent ID outreach Programme, The Athlete Academy will be hosting a series of Sport Specific Open Days throughout the Academic Year for Year 7&8 students. Please keep an eye out below for future events:
