Partnership Opportunities

We are an ambitious organisation looking for partnerships where we can enhance each others vision and achieve our goals together. The DIS is all about Derbyshire people being supported in Derbyshire by Derbyshire businesses.

There is already some tremendous support for the programme and we hope that having learnt more about us, you are compelled to become a part of the DIS team. We pride ourselves on making a real difference to the lives of our athletes, helping them to perform at their very best in the challenging environments that they face.

Why we need your support

The athletes on our programme train for an average of 21 hours every week and most of them are in full time education.  They are required to compete most weekends at home and abroad. Not only do they face the challenges of every day life like any young person, but they have the added pressure of constantly staying at the top of their game.

Alongside this, we have our coaches who are experts in their sports. They are tireless in their pursuit to gain that critical edge, whilst giving full emotional support to their athletes.  We offer them a level of support which compliments the existing coach education courses organised through National Governing Bodies of sport.

In Andy Wood, we have a world leading coach who is able to support coaches through the intricacies of what it takes to be World Class.

This doesn’t all happen without funding and resources. If we are to be successful in producing 20 world class athletes by 2020 we need the best partnerships to ensure we leave no stone unturned.

Our athletes have a dream… let’s work together to make it come true!

Get involved and support our 20:20 vision

We have set a very ambitious target to ensure the top 20 athletes from Derbyshire become World Class by 2020. We will do everything we possibly can to give our athletes and coaches the best platform to achieve that goal.

DIS partnership packages

We are seeking partnerships with organisations and individuals who already play a role within the business community in Derbyshire.

DIS offers a range of tiered partnership packages to suit your business objectives and your budgets. All of our partnerships are created on a bespoke basis to ensure the rights and benefits you receive offer you the best return on your investment.

We have created a partnership platform to suit a variety of businesses and individuals whether you looking for a fully integrated marketing platform or simply wanting to contribute towards an individuals journey to the dizzy heights of the world class stage – there’s something for everyone.

Timing in elite sport, as well as business, is everything. If there was ever a time to be a part of an incredible success story, that time is now. With Tokyo 2020 just around the corner, this is your time to make dreams a reality.
