School Games Talent Inspiration Programme 2017

Four of our pupils have been selected to take part in the School Games Talent Inspiration Programme 3 day camp, being held at Loughborough University from the 30th August-1st September 2017.

Students were nominated by PE staff and now have the opportunity to engage with County and Regional athletes in a range of workshops, as well as being mentored by an elite Athlete.

The Talent Inspiration Programme (TIP), brings together 150 young aspiring county and regional level athletes from across the country to participate in a residential learning experience.

With young people at the heart of the programme, the activities are specifically designed to engage and inspire aspiring young athletes and encourage them to start thinking about how they can reach their sporting potential and the impact that will have on their development as a young person.

Throughout the programme experienced Athlete Mentors bring to life the world of an elite athlete and the journey it takes to reach the top. Athletes have the opportunity to get involved in workshops, put their performances to the test and an opportunity to experience what it is like at a multi-sport event, creating what will be a dynamic learning opportunity which will help to highlight the talent pathways available and support required for young people at a local level to reach the Games.

Congratulations to Hannah Matthews, Elliott Crocker, Ed Grandidge and Fin Fielding! Pro athletes in the making! Watch this space...
