The academy's main aim is to ensure that young sports men and women receive all the support they require to become players and people of quality.

The Coleg Sir Gâr Sports Academy concept has developed to provide students with the opportunity of achieving their maximum potential in both sporting and academic spheres. The sports academy structure develops young players of netball, football and rugby. It also supports individual performers in sports such as athletics, golf, kickboxing, cross country etc.

The academy has excellent links with partners e.g. Welsh Rugby Union (WRU), Scarlets, Wales Football Trust (WFT), The Welsh Netball Association (WNA), Carmarthenshire County Council Sports Development Department, Colegau Cymru and AoC Sport.

There are designated timetabled academy coaching sessions throughout the week with fixtures on a Wednesday. Sports academy students are drawn from a range of courses across the five Coleg Sir Gâr campuses. We compete on a weekly basis in Welsh and British competitions.

Academy students have access to strength and conditioning and physiotherapy support.
