Everyone Active is urging aspiring sports stars to apply for funding and support as part of its Everyone Active Sporting Champions scheme. Online applications will be open from Monday 27 January to Friday 28 February.
The scheme, which is now entering its fifth year, has helped over 1,000 local athletes to achieve their sporting potential by offering them access to high-quality training facilities, financial support and expert advice. All athletes are provided with free access to Everyone Active’s centres across the country, and those on the higher tiers of the programme can also receive a sponsorship grant of up to £5,000 to help towards their training, equipment and competition costs.
Athletes on the scheme are also given exclusive opportunities to join mentoring sessions led by some of Britain’s most influential sports stars including Olympic silver medallist Colin Jackson CBE. In 2019, the scheme hosted several sessions across the country which included talks from industry experts alongside Olympic and Paralympic athletes who shared their personal experiences and advice with upcoming athletes. Everyone Active currently supports a number of sports men and women in the area including parasport swimmer Alice Tai.
Applicants should visitand fill out the online application form, which will be available from the 27th January 2020.
