Students are in Kings - Sports Academy!

11th July, 2018 by Jude Owens

Over 60 Year 11 and Sixth Form students were first off the mark at the new Sports Academy in a dedicated launch morning at Kings Fitness and Leisure.

As the sun shone brightly outside, the energetic students worked up a sweat in the gym working on fitness and agility tests, cardio activities, standing broad and sergeant jumps and measured their speed, power and flexibility. Each student is equipped with a programme to track their baseline fitness progress throughout the year to encourage them to push themselves to a high level of strength and conditioning.

Members can make use of the Kings Fitness and Leisure facilities, including the gym and swimming pool and frequent classes on offer and can also participate in team fixtures across the region to put their fitness to the test on the sports field.

Various Sports Academy memberships are available for students aged between 4 and 18 years and students enrolled in the Sixth Form at The Kings of Academy will have Wednesday afternoons timetabled for Sports Academy endeavours.

Sports Academy Leaders Carl Bennett and Shane Fear said:

“We are delighted by the enthusiastic take-up so far for the new Sports Academy at Kings Fitness and Leisure that is really putting sport on the curriculum for students across the Cheddar Valley and we look forward to working with our young sportsmen and women to take their fitness to the next level.”
