Our state-of-the-art Academy for Sport, based next to Gateshead International Stadium, is home to nine specialist sport academies which all offer outstanding training, coaching and playing opportunities.

Our academies.

Hard work wins.

We believe hard work and dedication always wins and we invest in every member of our Academy for Sport to help them develop and progress as much as possible in their chosen sport.

We have three development pathways that each come with a package of benefits and support and are linked to playing ability. The package includes a range of training, nutrition, physiotherapy and mentoring support specifically tailored to each sport with investment in each player ranging from £3000 to £6000.
