Opportunity for Year 11/12s to continue their education through football

The Male Football and Education programme is an outstanding opportunity for young talented footballers between the ages of 16-18 to continue their academic, footballing and career development through Norwich City CSF.

The programme provides the chance for players to combine an intensive 11-a-side football training and fixture programme – under the guidance of former Canaries Adam Drury, Simon Lappin and Ryan Jarvis – with studying for a Cambridge National Extended Diploma in Sport, over a two-year period.
