Crawley’s rising sports stars encouraged to apply for sponsorship through scheme
The scheme helps local athletes by offering them access to high-quality training facilities, financial support and expert advice.
Up-and-coming athletes in Crawley are being given the opportunity to receive funding from a local sports provider as part of its talent development programme.
Everyone Active, who will be taking over management of the leisure provision in Crawley in partnership with Crawley Borough Council, is calling for aspiring sports stars to apply for funding and support as part of its Sporting Champions scheme.
The scheme helps local athletes to achieve their sporting potential by offering them access to high-quality training facilities, financial support and expert advice. From grass roots athletes through to Olympic medallists, it has already aided more than 800 people on their sporting journeys.
Successful candidates will be awarded with bronze, silver or gold sponsorship packages. All athletes are provided with free access to Everyone Active’s centres across the country, and those on the higher tiers can also receive a sponsorship grant of up to £5,000 to help towards their training 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. Over the last year, scheme ambassador and Olympic medallist, Colin Jackson CBE, has hosted a number of mentoring days offering advice on topics including nutrition, money management and mental wellbeing. Alongside some of the country’s best athletes, Colin plays an integral part in providing both one-to-one and group mentoring opportunities to the athletes.
Stuart Mills, contract manager at Everyone Active, said:
“Since we launched the scheme in 2016, we have invested over £500,000 in helping the next generation of sports stars to achieve both national and international success.
“We are committed to offering support and funding for athletes from across Crawley and I would urge local athletes to apply for Everyone Active’s Sporting Champions scheme so that we can help them on their journey.”
Applications are now open and will close on 31 October 2018, and aspiring athletes are advised to email: firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
