"The Norfolk Sports Academy is a fantastic opportunity for aspiring athletes to develop and progress in their chosen sports, with the support of the top class facilities and expertise of the UEA Sportspark.
I know from my own career path how crucial it is for young people to have support and encouragement as they make the transition to elite sport, and the NSA’s link with the Young Norfolk Sports Academy will greatly contribute to this.
Most of all, I’m delighted to see a Sports Academy at this level develop in Norfolk, enabling athletes to train at an elite level while maintaining links with their local clubs and grassroots sport. In this way, I believe the NSA will benefit the whole community by inspiring more sport and better health for everyone." - Emma Pooley
