Athlete Care

At Bishop Burton College we provide a performance package that matches professional sports clubs, helping you to maintain your physical and mental health.

Athlete welfare is a top priority of ours and we realise that the students' time within their chosen sports will not only be on the training and match pitches but also in the meeting room, medical room and the gymnasium suites here at Bishop Burton.

To complement the work our dedicated coaching teams are doing on field and court, our performance academy players have access to a full-time physiotherapist, sports therapists (including a dedicated sports therapist for our women and girls academies) and strength and conditioning coaches.

Our performance department has over 10 years of experience in professional sport. Harnessing this knowledge we are able to utilise cutting-edge technology to assess and treat injury through exercise. This includes:

  • A handheld dynamometry system: The ActivForce2 gives us live data on how much force you are able to generate. which in turn allows us to make more informed decisions about your return to play.
  • Flow restriction training: The MyoCuff device allows students to exercise muscles using only 20% of the weight you would usually need to achieve improvements. This speeds up injury recovery times without risking setbacks or lengthy periods off your feet.
  • Rehabilitation app: We utilise an app so that we can send your rehabilitation programme direct to you. This includes demonstration videos, as well as how many repetitions and sets to perform.

Dealing with concussion

We care about the welfare of our athletes and maintain strict protocols on issues such as concussion. If our medics or coaches suspect that a concussion has taken place we withdraw our students from sport. We work alongside the academic team to ensure we are adhering to the concussion protocols within professional sports.
