Elite Athlete Support Programme

All our scholars benefit from our Elite Athlete Support Programme, designed to support the very best student athletes in any sporting discipline who are aspiring to compete at under 21 international level and beyond or seeking to secure a professional playing contract upon graduation.

All scholarship athletes automatically receive access to Team Durham’s Elite Athlete Support programme.

The programme is in place to cater for athletes from any sporting discipline and is tailored to individual requirements.

Services available within the Elite AthleteSupport Programme include:

  • Professional coaching structures
  • Performance and individual technique video analysis
  • Personalised, sport specific strength and conditioning programmes and fitness support
  • Access to sport psychology support
  • Enhanced access to physiotherapy and injury prevention support
  • Access to comprehensive pre-season, term-time and summer season training programmes
  • Enhanced lifestyle and time management support / mentoring for selected athletes
  • Personalised nutritional guidance seminars and additional nutritional information

*Please note that programmes will be designed to reflect the requirements of each individual and, as such, not all of the services listed above will be available to all of the athletes within the Elite Athlete Support Programme.

In addition to the Elite Athlete Support Programme, any student athlete competing at international level will have the opportunity to apply for financial support to assist with travel costs.
