This week the players at the new boarding school site at Ellesmere College were treated to a guest speaker to share his expert knowledge first hand with them. Kyle Wearing, Sports scientist with league two side Crewe Alexandra, came to the academy to talk to the players about his role at the club, the importance of sports science with professional players and take questions to help the players’ development.
Kyle, who has been to the Edukick academy on a few occasions, was formally a nutritionists at league one side Blackburn Rovers FC and has spoken to the Edukick players previously on correct diet and nutrition for the professional game. This time round the Ellesmere academy players got the best of both world, the understanding of sports science along with nutrition advice.
Guest sessions such as this are vital part of our academy development. Having current professionals from the top clubs in the area come in and talk first hand to the players gives them a great insight into the professional game and backs up all the work the coaches at the academy do on a daily basis. The player can use these session to review their own part they play in doing all they can to perform at the highest level.
Over the coming season we will have more guest speakers and coaches at the Academy sites to bring home professional football in the UK to the players.
