Pentathlon Academy

Bishop Burton Sport is the home of Yorkshire Pentathlon.

As an official academy of Pentathlon GB, 

we run training academies to support talented pentathlon athletes, as well as supporting newcomers, preparing them for the Pentathlon GB competition programme.

This academy is ideal for pentathletes who are aiming to compete at the highest level.

With 16+ and 18+ groups, you'll be able to join the pentathlon academy as a college or degree level student. At both levels, you'll have the opportunity to balance high-performance training with your academic studies.

Entry requirements

Prospective academy players must have applied for a course at Bishop Burton College or University Centre Bishop Burton. Academy players will normally have already performed at a high level but the criteria is not exclusive and all applications are considered.

Pentathlon scholarships

If you are part of the 16+ group, you may be eligible for a scholarship. Our pentathlon scholarships provide athletes with the opportunity to purchase heavily subsidised gym membership and training kit to support their development.
