3 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 dreams. 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. 3

10 “Together we can achieve excellence” Alan Buzza Loughborough is a truly inspirational place to be involved with sport. The buzz of elite performance is contagious. Strategic Manager, [Performance Sport] Loughborough University. David Ralph 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. Men's Hockey Coach, Loughborough University. George Predescu 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. Head Coach, Gymnastics, Loughborough University 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.
