Athletes Selected for TASS 2020

Congratulations to all those selected for the 2020 Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS).
TASS is an initiative that receives support and some funding from Sport England with the following mission: “A world-leading partnership between education and sport to help talented athletes in England fulfil their potential and balance their sporting development with their education and training.” TASS supports athletes who are currently unfunded by UK Sport and who sit somewhere close to the standard required for entry into Podium/World Class Development programmes. The Army has established a strong relationship with TASS and selects and funds, through the ASCB, talented Army athletes for placements regionally at universities or in the Aldershot hub to receive TASS support.

 In particular we would like to congratulate the following representing Army Martial Arts. Well done!

LCPL Rowan – Karate

CPL Johnston – Karate

SGT Guba – Taekwondo

RFN Rumba – Taekwondo

TASS Briefing/Induction Day – 29th September 2020

There is a mandatory Briefing/Induction Day for all Army TASS athletes; units with TASS athletes are encouraged to send a unit rep.

This year it will be held in Aldershot at the Army School of Physical Training on Tuesday 29th September 2020. The day will commence at 0930 hrs and will be complete by 1600 hrs. As the TASS delivery model is currently being reviewed with some potential changes from the previous delivery programme it is strongly recommended that a unit representative also attends this Briefing Day.

Due to COVID-19 it might be that the briefing is held online. More information as to how the day will be structured will be sent out when it is available.
