The Sporting Champions scheme from Everyone Active gives talented athletes the opportunity to make use of training support and mentoring sessions to further their burgeoning careers.

Launched in 2016, the Sporting Champions scheme has been responsible for more than £2 million worth of support to over 5,000 athletes across a huge variety of disciplines; from wheelchair basketballers and swimmers to artistic gymnasts and figure skaters.

From a total of 30 Sporting Champions competing at the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, our athletes achieved a combined five gold, two silver and three bronze medals.

The programme has been designed to assist this country’s next generation of superstar athletes in making the most of their natural talents.

As an Everyone Active Sporting Champion, you’ll benefit from access to free training facilities at any of our 230-plus sports centres located all over the country, as well as to mentoring days throughout the year. These days are hosted by performance experts, including sporting superstars such as Colin Jackson CBE, Lauren Steadman MBE and Lutalo Muhammad, distributing their wisdom and knowledge, as well as encouraging the sharing of ideas between you, the athletes.

If this sounds like a programme you’d be interested in joining and you’re a UK athlete who is looking to achieve your full potential, we’d love to hear about why you want to be a Sporting Champion.
