A reminder that Development Group will not be on today, Wed 28th Oct , due to half term. We resume at the new winter training venue at the University's Sportshall from next week, Wed 4th Nov at 6.40pm. Please refer to my recent email for more details. Karin
The position of Coaching Coordinator needs to be filled, we are looking for an existing coach who would be willing to take on this important communication role for WADAC. The role would involve:
- ensuring coaches keep waiting list admistrators aware of where there is capacity to take new athletes, and that coaches have enough athletes to keep their groups full
- informing existing coaches of any forthcoming meetings/coaching courses to further develop their knowledge and coaching skills
- acting as a point of contact for anyone interested in becoming a coach
- communicating with all coaches where any groups may require more coaching help
This role could largely be done by email, possibly even by using social media. It would help the Club immensely in progressing more potential athletes off the Waiting List and into coaching groups for regular training. If you are interested, then please contact Karin Gray for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org
This information applies to the following categories of athletes:
- Power of 10, Top 10 place in 2015 - you can apply for a grant application
- Power of 10, Top 15 place in 2015 , and Top 10 in a national/international competition in 2015- you can apply for a non-grant application
Do any of these categories apply to you? Then please read below:
Hampshire County Council provides support services to help Hampshire’s most talented athletes reach world class podiums e.g. Olympics, Paralympics, World Championships. Support starts at county level and goes through to athletes competing internationally. As the performance pathways for different sports vary hugely, each National Governing Body (NGB) of sport is consulted to ensure that support is given at the right level. Disciplines not supported by the NGB or without clear performance pathways will not be eligible for HTAS support.
A variety of factors will influence the level of support provided to an athlete. These factors include national and international rankings, national and international competition results (for individual sports) and selection for national and international teams (for team sports).
Grant Applications are now open for theHampshire Talented Athlete Scheme and will close on Sunday 11th October. Athletes with a top 10 national ranking might be eligible for grant funding and should complete the Hampshire Talented Athlete Application Form.
As part of its Olympic and Paralympic Legacy Programme Hampshire County Council has allocated £5000 to help athletes with the costs of competing internationally. Athletes are invited to apply for up to 50% of their expenses attached to competing internationally, to a maximum of £500.
Athletes must fulfil the criteria laid out in the guidance notes on the ‘How to apply’ page and cannot be in receipt of HTAS funding for this calendar year.
Applications for the services below are accepted throughout the year and processed on the 1st and 15th of each month.
- Free access to participating leisure centres
- Fast track-physiotherapy service
- Sports science support from Southampton Solent University
- Public speaking and presentation skills training
Unitary authority support
The Hampshire Talented Athlete Scheme covers people who live in one of the boroughs or districts of Hampshire. This includes Test Valley, Basingstoke and Deane, Hart, Rushmoor, East Hampshire, Havant, Gosport, Fareham, Eastleigh, Winchester and the New Forest.
The unitary authorities (Portsmouth, Southampton and Isle of Wight) have their own services. Please contact the relevant person if you live in one of these areas.

Medals will be available in the Clubhouse on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next couple of weeks so please come and collect them. Please remember to sign the sheet to confirm collection.
