ICON is a Derbyshire Sport programme which aims
"To recognise, celebrate and support talented athletes from Derbyshire”.
When our athletes get to the podium, we want them to feel that partners in the county have contributed to their success and that they succeeded because of the start they got in Derbyshire.
Derbyshire Sport introduced ICON in 2010 to support the creation of stronger links between sport and businesses in Derby and Derbyshire and to raise funds to provide bursaries to our most talented young sports performers.
All of the funds raised through ICON go directly to the talented athletes. We have more than 100 who are competing at a national and international level and the bursaries help them with their training, equipment and competition costs. As well as providing our athletes with a small bursary, we are also able to offer them a free pass to use in their local authority leisure centre, and recognition through our website, local press and at local launch events.
