Academy Rated Outstanding

SAINTS Academy has once again been rated as Outstanding.

The club has attained the grade every year since the grading process began and it represents a level of performance which exemplifies best practice and implies that these very high levels of performance are sustainable and will be maintained.

Comments on Saints Academy were:

“St Helens have continued being an ‘outstanding’ Academy since the inception of the accreditation process.

“They have a clear pathway and development strategy through the Academy to the first team and pride themselves on producing players from their junior ranks.

“The continuity of experienced staff and the commitment from the management team creates a dynamic performance environment enabling the programme to maximise player development models.

“This has seen a continued progression of junior players gravitating into the full-time squad, demonstrating a club that rewards committed development with opportunity.

“The club has commenced further investment into facilities to enhance the opportunities presented to players.”

This is the fifth year that the Super League Academy accreditation audit has taken place with the process focused on three key areas: quality of leadership and management; how well Academies meet the needs of players; and the delivery of the player development system.
