Join Tigers at college open day

Brooksby Melton College will hold its final Open Day this weekend for prospective higher and further education pupils to find out more about studying for a career in sport.

The college, which supports the Tigers academy and developing player programme, is opening its doors from 10.00am to 1.00pm for visitors to take part in a tour of the Brooksby campus and a series of practical sessions.

Ahead of the Open Day, LeicesterTigers.com caught up with Tigers rugby development coach Steven Baker, who works closely with the college.

So why choose to study a sports course at BMC?
“Brooksby Melton College is not only the top-ranked education provider in the area for 16-18 year olds, but also ranked fourth nationally! With smaller, focused class sizes, this allows for more direct learning and tutor time. You will also gain invaluable work experience and even paid work with Leicester Tigers by completing relevant vocational qualifications.”
What specialist facilities are there at BMC?
“There are full-size grass and 4G pitches and training areas as well as a bespoke strength and conditioning gym for practical learning, plus an indoor sports hall. The college also utilises the best sports science tools that can be used to facilitate training and performance including; Opto jump, GPS packs, CoachLogic analysis software, Watt Bikes, blood lactate analysis to name a few.”
How will Leicester Tigers support my learning?

We provide a minimum of eight hours coaching time with Leicester Tigers coaches within your timetabled week. This includes rugby training, strength and conditioning, injury support, analysis and nutritional support.

“You can also gain hands-on work experience that can lead to casual paid employment, ranging from refereeing at Tigers events through to coaching on our new Multi-Sport Camps.”

What will students learn from the open day?

"The open day is a great chance to find out how we operate through experiencing a 90 minute practical coaching session, as well as how we can facilitate your career goals as a player, coach, student and as a person.​

“You’ll meet current students with the chance to ask questions and discover more about the campus.”
