National Talent Camp

Supported by the ASA, the Youth Sport Trust’s National Talent Camp (NTC) is a unique, residential experience which brings together hundreds of the most talented young athletes, coaches and officials from across England.

Developed and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, hosted by Loughborough University and funded by Sport England, the National Talent Camp is a globally unique event in that it not only tests and challenges the attendees in an intense multi-sport environment, but it is multi-disciplinary with athletes, coaches and officials sharing the experience and developing in the same environment.

Around 350 young sports coaches, athletes, and officials from across 10 sports came together from the 18-21 December to participate in this three dimensional camp to increase individual aspiration and ambition whilst developing empathy.

The National Talent Camp four-day residential was delivered through sessions that focus on performance, philosophy, taking ownership of behaviours, managing emotions and understanding the value and importance of operating to high standards.

The camp was designed to support attendees to develop within their role, sport, and collectively as a team, through a mixture of theory and practice.

The camp is followed by a 12 month development programme delivered by the ASA specifically for the ASA successful candidates.

Applications are not currently open for the camp, but if you would like to know more, or to find out how you could get involved in future years. Please contact
