Joanna Joins the Elite
Joanna Eley leads the way
NISA and the Great Britain Short Track Speed Skating Squad are delighted to announce that Joanna Eley has been awarded a place on the UK Sport Elite Coaching Apprenticeship Programme. The programme which is funded by UK Sport is a two year programme and is always oversubscribed and so for Joanna to be selected is a great achievement. Joanna will work with a mentor and will shadow the work of the Great Britain Coach, Nicky Gooch.
Joanna will attend several workshops on various topics which are organised by UK Sport and will also receive a scholarship of £6000 which will help her to develop topics which are of particular interest to her sport. Joanna will have the opportunity to work with some high calibre coaches from other sports.
The governing body will also benefit from this award as this will allow links to be made with other sports not only for Joanna but for the other Coaches as well.
