The athletes we support will spend over £7,000 each year in meeting the costs of their sport with their family. Without the charity's backing, many of these young prospects would face a tough decision on whether to continue training and competing. You can help them on their journey!

Three-time Olympic medallist Roger Black had to learn to deal with high-pressure scenarios at a young age after he was catapulted onto the senior stage in a flash. His rise to prominence came after winning gold in the 400m and 4x400m relay at the Cottbus 1985 European Junior Championships.

Ama Agbeze has been there, done it and got the gold medal when it comes to the Commonwealth Games….and now she is helping to prepare potential Team England stars of the future. The 39-year-old captained her country to their first-ever Commonwealth gold in netball back in 2018, and she is currently helping her hometown of Birmingham get ready for the 2022 Games as part of the Organising Committee.
