18 September 2013

New AASE apprentices from across the four aquatic disciplines enjoyed a positive and inspiring start to their 18-month AASE programme journey at an induction weekend, held at the prestigious new FA sporting facility at St George’s Park, Burton on Trent.

Over 140 athletes and parents were in attendance along with Grant Turner, GB Olympic swimmer who spoke to the athletes about his experiences and the importance of setting goals, communication and making the most of every opportunity.

The weekend was a great success and the athletes enjoyed the opportunity to give their views about what to expect from the programme. They attended a series of workshops focusing on different aspects of elite sport including the technical, tactical, mental and physical aspects.  Workshops were supported by industry experts Dave Evitts, Ciaran O'Brien, Nigel Mills and Rebecca Gallantree.

Evening celebrations were also held to recognise the apprentices nominated for AASE Apprentice of the Year, including Ollie Hynd, Catherine Parker, Max Litchfield and Rachel Williamson for swimming, Yona Knight-Wisdom for diving, Courtney Dean for water polo and synchronised swimmer Sophie Usher.

Max Litchfield was awarded the overall AASE Apprentice of the Year Award for his dedication, quality of work and demonstration of all the qualities required in being an elite athlete.
