Open four days per week, Monday to Thursday, from 9:AM – 2:30PM. This is what a typical day looks like:
We do approximately 90 minutes of skills-based football each day.
2. Strength & Conditioning
We do 30-45 minutes in the gym each day. You will have your own personalised strength and conditioning program.
After hitting the gym, you will undergo a recovery session which includes things like stretching and swimming.
You will shower, change, and have a lunch break.
You will have an hour lecture on the subjects that you are studying in your current trimester.
The academy employs full-time tutors and like all universities, students find the extra assistance from tutors on top of their lectures to be very important.
Our tutors and coaches finish up with students at around 2:30pm each day.
Please note that the above is subject to change depending on which academy you attend and other factors and serves only as a guide of what a day at the Simon Black Academy may look like.
