It might have been the Easter break for some, but school students from across the North East and North Yorkshire came to TyneMet to take part in a basketball taster session. 

The aim was to introduce prospective students to the North East Sports Academy (NESA) team at TyneMet, see the facilities for themselves and meet up with current students who combine their studies with first class coaching and training with NESA.

What our students say

Throughout my experience volunteering with the Coaching Academy I have learnt a lot of new skills that I can use when I am coaching or on placement. The Coaching Academy has been a fantastic, wonderful, interesting and challenging opportunity. You can take it up alongside your studies at the college and with opportunities to gain qualifications and the experience it will help you to find employment or move onto higher education in the future.
