Sport Virtual Summer School for years 7-13
The Make Happen Virtual Sport Summer School for years 7-13 is split across 4 days. Every day has at least a few of practical elements or activities that students can do at home and some worksheets for them to fill in. Here’s what each day looks like:
Day 1 – Sport Therapy
On the first day you’ll explore sports therapy, looking at some of the roles and responsibilities therapists have and what you would learn if you studied Sport Therapy as a degree. This day includes basic first aid, injury treatments, and concussions and the effects they can have.
Day 2 – Sport Analysis
This day gives you an insight into the different types of sport analysis, including sport analysis in players as well as on the pitch. You will get to explore how sport analysis is used and, if you got a job in becoming a sport analyst, what a day in the job looks like in a professional environment.
Day 3 – Sport Psychology
On this day, you will explore what sport psychology is, the subjects you can study and the entry requirements. You will also look at the different career paths sport psychology can lead to, as well as virtual tours of some of the universities in Essex that offer sport courses at degree level.
Day 4 – Research and Dissertations
This is the last opportunity to look at local universities sport facilities and the courses they offer. You will look at one of the best universities in the world for sport degrees – Loughborough. You will also explore what a dissertation is that you’ll need to complete in the third year of study, including three real life examples from sport graduates.
