Young coaches, officials and athletes attend National Talent Camp 2014
The 2014 Youth Sport Trust National Talent Camp (NTC) was a unique, four-day residential experience which brought together 350 of the most talented young athletes, coaches and officials from across England.
The camp saw 200 coaches, 100 athletes and 50 officials come together from 19 – 22 December to participate in a multi-sport, multi-role, three dimensional camp to increase individual aspiration and ambition whilst developing empathy. Through the camp, young people were stretched and challenged to be ambitious and achieve their sporting best.
The camp, which is funded by Sport England and presented by Loughborough University, worked with seven National Governing Bodies of Sport.
The ASA saw 27 young coaches, six athletes and eight officials take part in the opportunity which offered them the chance to learn and share valuable experiences in their pursuit of sporting success. All candidates were selected based on their sporting/coaching or officiating achievements and a demonstration of their commitment to personal development.

The coaches and officials will now undertake a 12-month development programme where they will find themselves challenged and opened up to unique opportunities within the aquatic sporting arena.
