LEAPApplications for the Lincolnshire Elite Athlete Programme (LEAP) 2013 are still open.

Sportsmen and women from Lincolnshire, who are competing at County, Regional, National or International level, are encouraged to apply for the programme for funding and support throughout 2013.

Working with a variety of partners, including Lincolnshire County Council, District Councils and Corporate Club organisations, LEAP supports 50 athletes each year.

The benefits include support with funding, mentoring, promotion and marketing, support through Sports Massage and Remedial Therapy company CS-SMART, opportunities to attend training courses and a performance camp with double Olympic medalist Bryan Steel.

Rachel Belcher, LEAP Project Officer at Active Lincolnshires Partnership, said: “This year, we have funded 50 athletes and donated nearly £20,000 to sportsmen and women across Lincolnshire. We want as many athletes as possible to apply for the programme.”
