Applications for the Everyone Active Sporting Champions programme are now open! Now in its seventh year, this sports talent development scheme gives up-and-coming athletes much-needed support in their training and progress.

Since its inauguration in 2016, the scheme has helped thousands of athletes make good on their potential, by providing free access to Everyone Active’s nationwide network of 200+ leisure centres.

Applications are open from today – Monday 13th February – and close on Monday 13th March. You can make your application by visiting the Everyone Active Sporting Champions website.

It’s not just free training facilities, however. As an Everyone Active Sporting Champion, you’ll enjoy the guidance and mentoring of our team of Elite athletes, each of whom has reached the very top of their respective field. These include the following legendary Olympians and Paralympians: Lutalo Muhammad, Jennifer and Jessica Gadirova, Richard Kilty, Lauren Steadman, Kadeena Cox and Maisie Summers-Newton.

Sporting Champions will also receive free unlimited access to the Everyone On Demand app, which gives them a choice of more than 500,000 at-home workouts from leading fitness brands, including WithU, Flex and Les Mills, as well as our own premium EA Series content.

Additionally, Olympic silver-medallist Colin Jackson will remain in his role as Sporting Champions Ambassador, working alongside the scheme’s Elite athletes to help make sport more accessible within local communities.

Alongside some of Team GB’s top talent, he will play an integral part in providing both one-to-one and group mentoring sessions throughout the year. 

Colin said: “I’m proud to be involved in a scheme that is so dedicated to supporting athletic talent from grass roots up.

“I have watched the Sporting Champions scheme grow over the years and I’m so excited to continue working alongside a panel of truly talented Elite athletes to help mentor and support the next generation.

“The Sporting Champions scheme has helped thousands of up-and-coming athletes to achieve their sporting dreams and I can’t wait to see what this year’s intake go on to achieve.”
