Northumbria University Open Day A Success

Northumbria University opened its doors yesterday for a dedicated LFE Apprentice Open-Day to provide an insight into the School of Psychology and Sports Sciences.

Six local clubs visited the University and were able to experience taster sessions from the Sports Science and Coaching degree.

Over 100 Apprentices from Carlisle United, Darlington, Hartlepool United, Middlesbrough, Newcastle United and York City took part in a variety of workshops and activities in Northumbria’s brand new state of the art £30million city campus facility, Sport Central.

Biomechanics, Sports Psychology, Strength & Conditioning and Multi-skills Coaching were among the workshops on offer and Apprentices were able to carry out balance and shock pulse tests and devise effective coaching practices for agility, speed and co-ordination.

Speaking about the day, Newcastle United Apprentice Jak Alnwick said:

“We’ve all really enjoyed it and the facilities are really good. Its great to see that there’s places like this outside of professional football and unbelievable opportunities out there.”

Paul Urwin, LFE’s Business Development Manager and RO for the North East added:

“The feedback from Apprentices & Club staff is that they’ve really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. Its a fantastic experience for them to come into a million pound facility and see what is on offer.”
