A programme of online sessions suitable for all ambitious teenage athletes
This is the final four sessions of this year’s Sports Scholarship Programme 2022, attended by more than 2500 aspiring athletes. There is an entirely new and different content available for the Summer Term. This terms programme recognises that sports scholars are always looking for new ways to maximise their training knowledge and capacity to help them on their journeys as young aspiring athletes.
There is a range of speakers on different topics, who will provide a combination of information and inspiration for students. This will often involve sharing their own athletic journey, and presenting lessons that they have learned for the benefit of the audience. All have been asked to include the things they wished they knew when they were aspiring teenagers.
There is never going to be one time that is suitable for all schools. Sessions are scheduled live on Monday afternoons at 4.15pm, in the hope that this will be a convenient time for many schools to assemble their pupils to watch the sessions together, and stimulate discussion and planning. However, the recording will be available for seven days after this, enabling schools to view it at any time during that week – or to make it separately available to any pupils who missed it. It is hoped that this provides maximum flexibility to meet the needs of all environments. All session last roughly 45 minutes.
Sessions can be accessed individually, or as a series.
