Young Norfolk Sports Academy
The Young Norfolk Sports Academy seeks to provide expert support and education for the county’s most promising athletes.
As well as being part of a physical tracking programme, members of the Academy will develop their understanding of topics such as nutrition, psychology, injury rehabilitation and handling the media. These sessions will be delivered by experts in their field and by current international athletes. We expect that the programme will open up opportunities for athletes to be key members of representative sporting structures in their chosen disciplines.
I am proud that Norwich School is leading this initiative. We have the human resources and facilities to act as a hub with aspiration to sporting excellence and we seek to play a prominent role in the wider community. We completed a successful pilot scheme with our own athletes during 2013/14 and now look forward to welcoming athletes from right around the county. I hope you will enjoy finding out more about the scheme.
