We are an ambitious programme which seeks to enrich the lives of its alumni – whether they make it as an athlete or if they simply grow as a person. While we strive to provide an excellent service to each and every athlete, we recognise that in order to optimise our impact within the programme we must utilise a wider supporting framework. The more we can fund the programme, the higher degree of impact we can have with our athletes, through community outreach, high quality delivery, renowned guest speakers and more.
So how can your organisation help?
Your organisation can become an integral part of the programme. Your support could enrich the experience of our athletes, giving them the best chance to succeed in sport and positively impacting their development as an individual. Currently we have a finite pot, your support could aid in supporting many other athletes on an individual basis.
On behalf of Performance Herts, we thank you for your interest in and support of this project and the difference you can make to our athletes. information.
