Sports Academies at Ivybridge allow performers to retain their aspirations to pursue their sport alongside their academic commitments. The Football, Gymnastics, Netball and Rugby Academies access high levels of conditioning through their coaches who have played and coached their respective games at a high level.
Individual sports, where expertise is not on site, are given support to ensure their commitments are made available to a standard conducive to improvement.
The Tennis Academy is run through Ivybridge Tennis Centre and staff liaise with them to monitor progress and standards. The Tennis Academy runs at an extra cost to students as external coaches and facilities are used which cannot be accessed at the College. The Tennis Academy helps students with ambitions to improve their Tennis in a performance setting. Tennis Academy students can also be offered extra Strength and Conditioning, Recovery and Psychology Sessions by request to the Director of Academies.
All Academy performers have access to Strength and Conditioning through our full time Strength and Conditioning member of staff, Mr Taylor. Ivybridge has a proud history and tradition of Sport which we continue to support.
