“TASS has given me a lot of support allowing me to develop further. I could prepare for competitions well with the S&C sessions as well as being able to fund them; this allowed me to travel abroad and gain experience”Olivia Piechota, Judo, University of East London.
“TASS has given me valuable additional support which has enhanced my gymnastics training. I have benefitted from the strength and conditioning coaching, as well as enjoying it. The use of the gym facilities (outside of my regular training) has been an added bonus. My Lifestyle coordinator is a great mentor offering sound advice and guidance. All in all, the experience has been very worthwhile”Rachel Davies
Gymnastics, Durham University.
“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
