Worthing College has launched a gifted and talented scheme for students who excel in their own sport. The successful athletes have been given personal training programmes in the gym, time in the Sussex Performance Centre doing strength and conditioning, as well as planned workshops with elite athletes and psychological sessions to help improve their performance.
The successful athletes for 2016/17 are:
Amber Fowler – Irish dancer who has attended the World Championships
Esme Durlston-Powell – GB Snowboarding team
Amelia Ritchie – Wales International women’s football team
Ben Illsley – Sussex County triple jumper
Nick Oxley – Sussex County cricketer
Ben Curtis – England water polo U18 team
Luke Brodie – England Colleges men’s football team
Fintan Walsh – England Colleges men’s football team
We hope the new scheme is successful and creates opportunities for students not only in the Sports Academy.
