Meet the Athletes evening

We're looking for final year or postgraduate Sports students to work alongside the coaches and parents of the region's up and coming young talent as part of the Lancashire Rising Star initiative.

If you're from the Strength & Conditioning, Coaching, Sports Science, Sports Studies, Exercise & Nutrition, Physiology, Sports Psychology, Biomechanics or Sports Management programmes, this could be a great opportunity for you to enhance your CV while gaining insight into athlete development.

The Lancashire Rising Star Fund gives young athletes from across the region the opportunity to receive a grant to cover costs such as travel, training, accommodation, competition fees, and equipment.

Each recipient also receives a package of support from UCLan that includes strength and conditioning services, nutritional advice and support and access to UCLan sports and training facilities.

Anyone interested please attend the 'Meet the Athletes' evening at Greenbank Lecture Theatre, Wednesday, 24 September, 6.30pm. Alternatively, please email Keith McGregor for more details.

Careers Tube Map

The SSTO has created an interactive map to give students an indication of what type of additional courses they might want to consider in order to enhance their employment opportunities in specific roles in the sports industry.

Each career is a coloured route, with stations along the way to show the steps that may help you reach career goals. As you click the different stations, pop-ups will provide links to further information.

Completing these courses does not guarantee employment in a preferred profession, but alongside appropriate experience may improve your chances.
