Aspiring young athletes who meet criteria can now apply for the Diploma in Sporting Excellence (DiSE) programme.
The two-year DiSE programme has been designed to meet the needs of young people who have the realistic potential to achieve excellence in their chosen sport and are aiming to perform at the highest level. The course aims to equip young athletes with on and off-court skills, and experience a high-performance environment whilst achieving a NVQ (National Vocational Qualification).
GB Women’s Lucy Robinson commented on DiSE:
“DiSE enabled me to gain a more in depth knowledge of the game on and off the court. It was a great chance for me to learn and develop my basketball skills alongside my A-Levels, allowing me to add an A-level equivalent qualification to my University applications.”
Applicants must be:
- Age 16-18 (on 01/09/2023)
- Studying A-Levels or a BTEC Level 3 Qualification
- Hold a British passport
- Living in England (during term-time)
- Member of an affiliated BWB Club
The deadline for applications is Sunday 30th July 2023. Find out more and apply today: https://britishwheelchairbasketball.co.uk/diploma-in-sporting-excellence-dise/
