Talented Athlete Programme (TAP)

Supporting our Athletes

Talented Athlete Programme (TAP)

Created in 2011, TAP supports athletes, of any age, from across the North-East, to pursue their sporting dreams.

Upon enrolling on the programme individuals will go through a thorough screening process by The Physiotherapy Clinic before beginning their programme. This will give the strength and conditioning coaches as much information as possible about the athlete to allow them to create a bespoke training programme. After this screening process, individuals will receive a 12 week block of training where they will receive two coached strength and conditioning sessions per week, in addition to fitness testing, video analysis and swimming pool access.

With the support of the programme, many TAP members have gone on to achieve great success of winning at national championships and competing at World Championships for their respective sports.

TAP membership is available at RGU SPORT priced at £200 for a 12-week block.
