Today’s sports educational visit was to former Premier League winners Blackburn Rovers academy. As of this season, BRFC’s academy have been graded as a Category 1 Academy by the EPPP, the best grading you can be given at academy level, sitting alongside clubs like Manchester City, Manchester United, Everton & Liverpool to name a few. Current Foundation Phase coach Ash Higgins (centre) spoke to the group about how he got in to coaching, his primary school coaching experiences and his playing days before moving in to coaching. A great insight for all our sports students involved.
