The 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow is now just around the corner and Derbyshire has high hopes of a number of athletes from the county making it to the Games. The ICON programme is designed to provide financial support to these athletes, with all of the current 142 athletes on the programme either currently competing internationally, a national championship medallist, or part of a recognised national development squad within their sport.

Derbyshire Sportís vision is:

"To make Derbyshire one of the most active and successful sporting counties in England by 2020"

We are making good progress towards our target:

  • Adult participation in sport and recreation is increasing
  • This year, there will be over 1,000 school sport competitions across the county leading to more than 100 county finals
  • We have over 100 young people from Derbyshire competing for England or Great Britain and the Derbyshire Institute of Sport was launched in 2012 to help springboard our most talented to senior success by providing an additional support package to selected athletes
  • ICON is now a well-established group in the county with over 30 committed companies providing financial support
