ELITE Sports Leadership Academy 2017/18
Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS), Bosworth Academy and Ellesmere College are working in partnership to recruit students from years 10-12 to join the ELITE Sports Leadership Academy. The countywide Academy aims to identify and bring together the most talented and committed young leaders from across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland to develop, enhance and refine their skills by working alongside other young people and sports professionals.
Selected young leaders will be able to develop their personal resume by accessing support and training related to coaching, officiating and event volunteering. They will also be the workforce for the School Games Championships and act as role models and ambassadors back in their own schools/colleges and local Leadership Academies.

"Without the ELITE Leadership Academy, I wouldn't be doing what I am doing today. The Academy gave me numerous opportunities such as volunteering at the Rugby World Cup and the National School Games in Manchester.
The Academy enhanced my CV, got me offers at University and got me my dream job straight away. It gave me an insight into volunteering and different aspects of sport. My confidence and social skills improved dramatically. I wouldn't previously have been able to talk to over 3,000 people at the School Games or stand up in front of my school and talk in assembly."
