“Together we can achieve excellence”
Foreword by Jim Mutton, Principal of Loughborough College
I believe Loughborough is the UK centre for sport; For elite athletes over
19 years of age Loughborough has a superb portfolio of education and
sports development and coaching. The College probably leads the way
in the UK in providing ultra flexible learning programmes which allows
athletes to fulfil both their educational ambitions and their sporting
But for younger elite athletes, those between 16-18 years of age the
opportunities are much more constrained. We now have a unique
opportunity to start to address this weakness, an opportunity to put in
place a provision that will deliver more world class performers who will
also have had a superb education.
Our proposed Elite Athlete Performance Centre will specifically support
young elite athletes. Via the Centre and the College we will appraise
each individual, reviewing their specific needs and create a bespoke
scheme balancing training and competition alongside a workable flexible
education programme. Our new Centre will also deliver student
support, welfare, diet, recuperation and other services. And the results
will be elite student athletes who at 18, will be fulfilling their sporting
potential, achieving education qualifications and enhancing UK sporting
prowess and skills.
We have the ideas and the building. We know that there is both need
and demand for such a centre. We need your support and help to bring
this important and imaginative scheme to fruition.

Loughborough is a truly inspirational place to be involved with sport. The buzz of elite performance is contagious.

I feel that Loughborough College’s proposed Elite Performance Centre would be an exceptional opportunity for elite hockey players that would surpass
anything else on offer to them in the UK. The opportunity to train with other elite young athletes in hockey (as well as other sports) across the Loughborough
area, as well as the access to exceptional facilities and experts would provide the environment required to help those athletes reach their potential.

This is a brilliant idea. We can talk about your LCPC, because my “East-European" coaching past was mainly spent in national centres. The entire idea was
to put together athletes, coaches, accommodation, education, medical supervision, etc., in order to ease the athletes’ life but increase the performances in all
the domains of their life.
I think that an Elite Performance Centre could open up possibilities for offering elite support and provision to athletes from the age of sixteen and introduce a
culture of sporting excellence combined with education. For this to happen in Loughborough is a great opportunity.

George Gandy
The growth and ongoing success in recruitment and performance record of the College has long been very impressive indeed, and reflects a broadly-based
commitment to quality in academic, sporting, and social contexts, as the high level of competence of its staff, several of whom graduated through
programmes in which I have had personal involvement.
I am pleased to commend Loughborough College as a specially meritorious, and often under-rated, institution which has contributed hugely to sporting
success on the Loughborough campus and possesses great potential for doing so in a more formally recognised and externally supported capacity.
