Derby AC athletes are encouraged to apply to the Everyone Active Sporting Champions Scheme.

The scheme, now in its eighth year, supports talented up-and-coming athletes by offering free access to Everyone Active training facilities across the country, and is aimed at athletes from grassroots level to Olympians. Represented by a panel of elite athletes and Sporting Champions Ambassador Colin Jackson, the scheme holds mentoring sessions covering a range of topics, offering advice and support to athletes.

The scheme’s key objectives are to:

  • Inspire the next generation by encouraging the community to get more active
  • Make sports more accessible to local communities
  • Help athletes in the UK reach their sporting potential by providing free access to EA centres alongside mentoring and support
  • Showcase the wide range of facilities across the country

Applications are open on the Sporting Champions website from Monday 12 February to Monday 11 March 2024. Successful applicants will be notified via email at the end of April, ahead of the 1 May launch of the 2024-25 scheme.

Each applicant must fulfil one of the following criteria:

  • Be a nationally ranked athlete
  • Be a member of a regional squad with regional results in the previous two years or have represented at regional level in the previous two years
