In this Episode I interviewed James Baker on the back of the awesome Child to Champion conference to share his work with teenage athletes at St Peter’s High School. James gives loads of great insight into their programme especially around common problems with school age pupils and maximizing athlete engagement. (APOLOGIES for the poor sound quality in the 2nd part of the interview, had a bit of wifi trouble.) Then this month I review James Kerr’s Legacy and round up loads of jobs and online resources that are available at the moment.

It’s worth noting and I apologise because I am probably a bit late now. But EVERY professional rugby and football club in the UK will take on interns each season. Just because you don’t see it advertised, doesn’t mean there’s no opportunity, it probably just means they get inundated with enough applications as it is that they don’t need to advertise! If you want to find out about more opportunities in pro sport, then I highly recommend contacting teams and support staff to ask.
