It goes without saying that making it in sport – however you define that – is extremely difficult. Even those blessed with the requisite talent find it tough going, not least because of the expense. Other factors are always present, of course – time, commitment, sacrifice and other heavy burdens. But the weight of the financial burden is a common and recurring theme among younger athletes and their parents. Everyone Active’s Sporting Champions is there to provide funding and support for talented sports people across the UK.
Everyone Active’s Sporting ‘Champions
Launched in 2016 and supported by one of GB’s great athletes, Colin Jackson, the scheme has already helped a host of athletes in their efforts to become a national and international sporting success. Some 500+ athletes have been supported with over a million pounds in funding and sponsorship.
Everyone Active’s Sporting Champions supports athletes by offering both monetary funding and free access to Everyone Active’s 150 leisure centres across the country. With access to those facilities, athletes on the scheme are able to use the highest standard of resources for their ongoing training.
Becoming a sporting star comes with quite a heavy financial burden and many of the athletes on the scheme will also be provided with support to help pay for training, equipment, travel and competition costs.
Applications open now
Everyone Active manage over 150 leisure facilities across 45 local authorities in the UK – with sporting centres stretched right across the country from Sunderland to Plymouth. Its mission is to encourage everyone to do at least 30 minutes of activity, five times a week and lead a healthier more active lifestyle. Their centres boast some of the most state-of-the-art gym equipment around, alongside award-winning and Swim England accredited swim programmes plus other fun sporting activities for children
If you’re a UK athlete who is looking to achieve your full potential with a little support, they would love to hear from you. Applications for next year’s scheme officially open on Monday 15th January and will close on Friday 16th February.
