Born for Sport

Derbyshire athletes with the potential to be World Class

All of our athletes compete in individual sports which are represented at Olympic/Paralympic level (both summer and winter).  Athletes are supported on a yearly basis which runs from 1st September to the 31st August.  In the 2018/2019 year, we are supporting 32 athletes which can all viewed below by sport.  We also have 10 athletes in our alumni that have been through our programme and gone on to compete at World Class level.

The next panel meeting to assess future applications will be in July 2019.
