Centre Of Excellence Open Evening This Month

The Hull FC Centre of Excellence will host an open evening for students interested in joining the club’s rugby, sports and education programmes for the 2022/23 academic year.

With the latest academic year getting underway just over one month ago, the Centre of Excellence is already set to host an open evening for prospective students on Tuesday 26th October (6-9pm).

Open evenings are a perfect opportunity for students to take a look around our top-class facilities at the Centre of Excellence, whilst staff will also be on hand to answer any questions or queries.

It’s not just rugby studies that we offer; despite being the first choice in the region for aspiring rugby league players, the programmes also offer opportunities for participants of other sports, including those with an interest in working in sport, sports coaching, personal training and beyond – both male and female students, aged 16-19.

Whether you’re interested in becoming a pro rugby player, sports coach, physiotherapist or strength and conditioner, we have a team of experts across the entire sporting industry to assist you in achieving your dreams.

With the opportunity to learn, work and play as a part of the Centre of Excellence, the balance between theory and practical activities is ideal for students to develop knowledge and experience within the sports industry.

It is also directly aligned to the club’s rugby development pathway from grassroots to first-team, giving students the opportunity to pursue a professional rugby career if they wish – with both elite and recreational playing opportunities available.
