“TASS has been a great support in my final year of study and also in the process of being selected for the World Student Games. ”Clare Cryan, Diving Sheffield Hallam University - TASS 2011-2015
“TASS really helps me to strike the right balance between my sport and education. The Scheme means I can be the best athlete I can knowing that I will also have a career to fall back on afterwards. The TASS team I work with at Sheffield Hallam has been really helpful in giving me extra training opportunities this year which have definitely benefited my performance, and my results show this. Every athlete works hard but TASS is one thing that really helps to give me an edge. ”Adam Hague GB pole vault.
Current World Youth Indoor record holder, GB Junior record holder and 2015 European Junior Champion.
“For me it was the feeling there was a support system that was really important. Things such as assistance towards training costs and physio also made a huge difference. ”Helen Glover TASS 2007/08
