THE JAGUAR ACADEMY OF SPORT 2013 YEAR IN REVIEW

As the Class of 2013 Rising Stars graduate from the Jaguar Academy of Sport, we take a look back on what has been a remarkable year for the Academy. We could not be more proud of our Rising Stars; 40% have moved on to additional funding or professional contracts, making them the most successful class of Rising Stars in the history of the Academy. It has been a privilege to aid them on their journey and we now look forward to seeing the success they will continue to achieve.

TALENT DAYS

There were six Talent Days in 2013 as part of the Mentoring and Education Programme which provides the Rising Stars with the non-financial support required to be successful at the highest level. These events bring together the insight and experience of our Patrons and Ambassadors to help the Rising Stars achieve their full potential, focusing on various topics to support performance.

MASTERCLASSES

The tireless work of our Patrons and Ambassadors to help nurture and inspire excellence in our Rising Stars also extends to one-to-one Mentoring for the Academy Rising Stars. These sport specific Masterclasses help inspire our Rising Stars to go on to become future champions.

ANNUAL AWARDS

The fourth Jaguar Academy of Sport Annual Awards took place at the Royal Opera House in London and saw past, present and future athletes all collect awards. The ceremony honoured five of the 50 Academy Rising Stars with a Jaguar Academy of Sport Special Recognition Award. The Academy also recognised the year’s greatest British sporting achievements by giving awards for the Jump Off the Sofa Moment, the Most Inspirational Sporting Performance of the Year and the Patron’s Award for Sporting Legacy.
