At Selby College we realise that education is more than just studying, it's also about making new friends, the place and the social life. That's why we go to great lengths to combine quality learning and success with a variety of amazing enrichment activities.

The Selby College Football Development Centre (FDC) gives a platform to those players who have previously been involved with professional clubs, as well as those who have yet to be given the opportunity to showcase their sporting talents. With links to local professional and semi-professional clubs, students will have the opportunity to play at the highest level.
Training is incorporated into the study programme each week, with teams coached by Level 3 coaches. Additionally, Sports Science support is provided alongside the pitch-based sessions. This includes technical, tactical and strength and conditioning coaching for all players. Massage and rehabilitation is also available to those involved in the FDC.
The Men’s First Football Team and former league champions play in the AoC Yorkshire & Humber Men’s League and have represented the area at the National Championships. The Second Team were Runners-Up in their Regional AoC League in 2019. The Women’s Team have played weekly fixtures in the ECFA Yorkshire and Humber League (West League).
Other teams and clubs are available including Basketball, Dodgeball, Indoor Cricket, Volleyball, Table Tennis and Netball.
