Three half day sessions are experienced by participants. The programme will focus on four main pillars of success for well-rounded athlete development:
• Body – Have an understanding of the physical attributes of an elite athlete and how to prepare your body for competition.
• Head – Ensuring athletes have the right mind-set to compete and able to set achievable goals.
• Heart – Demonstrating determination, promoting the right values and being strong role models in and outside of sport.
• Team – Maximising your support systems to have the most effective “Team You” possible.
Year 5 Pupils are nominated and enrolled by their school to take part in the programme. Schools should consider Year 5 children who have all round sporting promise and are considered gifted and talented in this context. Children who are already a member of a community club will especially benefit from the programme however this should not exclude any child who shows potential but is not a member of a club.
