SUCET launch Futsal Scholarship, which will begin from September 2015.
From September 2015 Southend United Community and Educational Trust will be launching their first ever female Futsal Scholarship, where young women from across South East Essex can represent Southend United in a regional Futsal league, whilst also gaining a valuable sport qualification.
Female footballers will be given the opportunity to train and play under the guidance of a Southend United Centre of Excellence coach, vastly improving their skill set in the high-tempo and technical surrounds of a Futsal court.
As well as this, the scholars will study for a BTEC Level 3 in Sport (Performance and Excellence); an industry recognised qualification which offers pathways into university or employment upon completion of the course.
Southend United will be hosting an open evening for girls interested in the scholarship on Thursday 4th December between 6-7pm.
The event will be held in the community classroom at Roots Hall Stadium (adjacent to the Shrimpers Bar), with staff that will be happy to answer any questions and give you any information you may require.
For more information about the open evening, please feel free to call the Education department on 01702 341 351.
