With the opening of the Sports Hall and its brand new facilities in 2015, the College has created a centre for sports in the region that nurtures both performance and coaching talent.

For those students who are keen to take an active part in sport, the development squads are an ideal solution.  They sit within the student’s programme of study, which will include training sessions and competitive matches.  The students also get the opportunity to:

  • improve the standard of their own individual performance
  • enhance their career prospects
  • become involved with coaching or leadership
  • take part in pre–season training and assessment days
  • develop a personal portfolio with their coach with a detailed improvement action plan
  • take individual fitness testing and monitoring
  • have free fitness centre membership
  • gain entry into the AOC sport national championships
  • be involved in organising a cross college sports event
