CP Sport Ambassadors to support Training Day and Awards

Cerebral Palsy Sport are delighted to announce that the charity’s Ambassadors will be attending and supporting the upcoming Athletics, RaceRunning and Swimming Training Camp on Sunday 8th October 2017 at Harvey Hadden Sports Village in Nottingham.

The Training Camp is for participants, and coaches working with athletes or swimmers in a regular training environment who want to become more inclusive and/or increase knowledge of CP and training techniques. There will also be a RaceRunning taster and RaceRunning classification available on the same day.

The Cerebral Palsy Sport Ambassadors include Paralympics and World Class athletes with a huge amount of experience who can provide an interesting insight into sport at the top level for those with cerebral palsy. Read more about our Ambassadors here.
