You will receive a first-class experience on our Gap Year program. Players will arrive Mid to late August. They will go straight into Pre-season training ahead of the new season.
Players have on demand access to leisure facilities with Gym, Swim and class passes when they want. Players will train 4 times per week and be included in SFS matchday experiences.
All players will be tested pre-competition with specific strength and conditioning programs created to help them improve and reach the next level. Our aim is to make you fitter, stronger and more confident throughout the year.
Players leave mid-December and return Mid-January for block 2 through until the end of April / May. In-fact players will play and train for 8/9 months during their stay.
SFS Gap Year athletes stay in local accommodation 5-10 minutes from the stadium. The athletes receive SFS kit and matchday pass for local soccer semi-pro team, Scarborough Athletic.
