Supporting talented athletes to help them reach their potential is an element of the local sports system the District Council feels extremely passionate about.
Derbyshire Talented Athlete Fund is a programme that enables local athletes to flourish by providing financial support to assist athletes and their families meet some of the costs associated with training and competing at regional and national level - such as travel or equipment costs.
Watch our YouTube video, which features interviews with some of the Talented Athletes who received bursaries in 2011.
Derbyshire Sport coordinates the programme on behalf of local authorities and private sector partners who contribute financial support to the fund annually.
Further information can be found on the Talented Athlete Fund section on the Derbyshire Sport website.
