If I am chosen to join a National Academy, is there a chance I could be deselected?
All players selected will have the commitment of a place until they complete either their GCSE’s or Nat 5’s (expected to be at age 16). The only reason a player would be deselected before this time would be due to a serious behavioural breach of the National Academy code of conduct. Players may or may not be offered a place at the National Academy post 16. This will be at the discretion of the National Academy Head Coach based on progression and the likelihood of a player meeting the selection criteria for the Pro Scholarship Programme within the next 1-2 years.
