The National programme is taking player education one step further by giving lectures on training methods, lifting weights correctly and nutrition, as well as putting the players through their paces.

Players who are not already part of the Lions team are invited via the head coach of their clubs, to seek direct recommendation to the National programme. As laid out at the coachesí convention the method for this is as follows, the player and head coach together will fill out the Elite Player Programme sheet which gives personal details and measurements and forward them to the National Programme.

As we are 4 weeks away from this camp, a simple e-mail direct to NPcomms@ bafa.org .uk with the following details will be accepted for consideration.:
