Champions of the Future

lifeLEISURE is committed to supporting athletes of the future, through various development, training and performance pathways. Assistance is available to encourage young athletes from within Stockport to progress to a national and international level through training and educational support.

Our Champions of the Future Scheme is a dedicated scheme that supports 14 to 18 year olds, enabling athletes to train to their full potential to help them achieve their personal goals and future progression in their chosen sport.

The scheme is only available to young athletes who live in the Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council area, providing county, regional or national level performers with free access to lifeLEISURE facilities.

Champions of the future supports up to 20 athletes each year who take part in Sport England recognised sports, and recipients must apply year on year to retain their membership.
