Talent Inspiration Programme (TIP)

Every year, a small number of young people from North Oxfordshire are nominated for the Talent Inspiration Programme.

Running in parallel to the Level 4 School Games, the Talent Inspiration Programme (TIP) brings together 300 young aspiring athletes, aged 14 to 18 years old, from across the country to participate in a 3 day residential learning experience.

Throughout the programme experienced Athlete Mentors bring to life the world of an elite athlete and the journey it takes to reach the top. Young people have the opportunity to get involved in theoretical workshops, practical sessions and an opportunity to experience the atmosphere of a multi-sport event.

Every experience is designed to engage and inspire talented young athletes and to encourage them to start thinking about they can reach their full potential and the impact that will have on their development as a young person. TIP is a dynamic learning opportunity which will help to highlight the pathways available and support required for young athletes at a local level.

The Talent Inspiration programme aims to:

-      Enable young people to gain clear understanding of their talent and specifically how they can harness this when they return to their school.

-      Provide young people with an insight into what it is like to compete at a major multi-sport event.

-      Introduce the young people to new experiences through the opportunity to work with other like-minded young people from across the country

Young people can be nominated for selection to attend the three-day residential experience by Local Organising Committees, National Governing Bodies of Sport, School Games Organisers and Schools.
