Our mission

Our mission is to provide high quality sport-based opportunities that enhance development and offers support, not only on a personal and professional basis for individuals but also for the wider sporting eco-system.

This could be through internal opportunities at Loughborough or externally with national governing bodies and sport partners, as well as access to industry recognised qualifications, mentoring, masterclasses, and workshops. 

What opportunities are available?

We support a range of opportunities for both students and community members to get involved in a number of different strands, all designed to develop and enhance both employability and softer skills needed for a successful career in the sports industry and beyond:

  • Coaching
  • Officiating
  • Event management
  • Media, marketing and communications
  • Performance Support
  • Volunteer Zambia
  • Sports committee positions
