In partnership with Cambridge United Youth and Community Trust, CRC runs a Shadow Scholarship Scheme for learners aged 16-19. The Scheme is a two year National Diploma combined with a Football Development Scheme that sees players train 2-3 times a week and compete in the British College League and cup competitions.
Scholarship students have access to fantastic facilities for both training and home fixtures and they will receive coaching by fully qualified coaches from Cambridge United.
A number of scouts come to watch our players to see if they have the necessary attributes for a University Scholarship in America. Our unique partnership also allows the students to gain coaching experience within the Youth & Community Trust, as well as work experience with our Sports Science Department. Our players are given the opportunity to gain qualifications for degree courses to enable them to pursue employment in PE Teaching, Physio, Sports Science, Coaching and Fitness Instructing.
Find out about Cambridge United Elite Scholarship in more detail from the Course Leaders, as well as what student support there is available for you.
