Five Steps to Success in Need4Speed

Step 1: The chance to become an Olympic Champion through Need4Speed starts with an online application process which allows you to submit your personal details online.

Step 3: Following Phase 1 you may be invited to attend an advanced assessment event (Phase 2) with other successful applicants during the weekend of 24th/ 25th September 2016.

Step 4: The team of Olympic coaches and sports scientists will determine which athletes are invited to undertake a confirmation period (Phase 3) in the UK, between October and December 2016.

Step 5: Following Phase 3, successful athletes will be invited onto the GB Short Track Academy Programme aiming to gain selection onto the National squad within two years.
