The latest GO GOLD Talent Camp will be held on 2nd March, 2019.
Open to athletes supported by GO GOLD (and those that haven't been) and any athletes in full time education currently competing at county to international level.
Held at Loughborough College, the day is another great opportunity for aspiring sports stars of the future to improve their performance away from their individual disciplines. Whether you run, cycle or swim the camp will explore how you can develop in your sport, giving you access to a wide range of tools and workshops to improve training and performance.
Workshops and practical sessions will include Nutrition, Strength and Sports Psychology, injury prevention and more! Specialists in these areas will come together to support us in offering some of Leicester-Shire and Rutland's most talented athletes a unique multi-sport camp to increase your confidence, individual aspiration and ambition.
This year we also have a Parent/Coach workshop running alongside the Talent Camp which is designed to offer parents, teachers and coaches who wish to improve their knowledge, understanding and application of strength and conditioning, Nutrition and Sports Psychology.
Any attendees must be aged between 12-22 and currently be in full-time education. Pricing for the Talent Camp is free of charge for previously funded 2018/19 & 2019/20 GO GOLD athletes. There is a charge of £30 for those not currently being funded.
T-Shirts and water will be provided, but all attendees should bring refreshments for throughout the day.
GO GOLD has already helped to fund stars of the future, including cycling stars Grace and Lucy Garner, Team GB rower Jonny Walton and England's rugby star, Emily Scarratt. If you want to follow in their footsteps, applications for the 2019/20 programme opens later this year.
