Support for elite athletes

Young Performance Athletes

 

We recognise that competing at the highest level of sport brings unique challenges to young Christian sportspeople and their parents including frequent clashes with church commitments, a pressure to perform and family sacrifices. 


The tailored support we offer to young athletes, their parents and youth leaders may take the form of:

- invitations to local gatherings
- regular contact with one of our staff team
- prayer support
- links with other young Christian athletes 
- access to specific resources for elite athletes
- advice from elite athletes into specific issues

If you are a young performance athlete (on a performance pathway as laid down by your National Governing Body), or a parent or youth leader of one, please email our Young Performance Athlete Co-ordinator Lisa Elliott at lisa.elliott@christiansinsport.org.uk or call on 01869 255 630.
