Kitesurfers with dreams of becoming the next Aaron Hadlow or Kirsty Jones are being urged to apply for the new Team Jazz sponsorship scheme. Jazz Apples will be scouring the UK for the ten gifted sports enthusiasts to join the team and gain £1500 in support including cash funding, branded kit, a publicity campaign plus an awe inspiring team building trip.
This unique opportunity is open to sports people of all ages, backgrounds and sporting disciplines, offering applicants the perfect opportunity to gain additional support to help them in the pursuit of their sporting dreams. With competing in sport often being a costly business, team members will receive £1000 to help lift some of this financial burden, as well as receiving a publicity campaign with the aim of attracting additional media interest and sponsorship for each team member.
The successful ten chosen to join Team Jazz will also be taken on a motivational team building trip where they will meet the rest of the team and take part in an adventure activity day. Extreme sports athlete and TV personality Tim Emmett will also be on hand to run a motivational talk, chat about his past experiences and offer advice to each of the team members. Emmett has vast experience in competing at the highest level and is renowned for his astonishing sporting exploits including four podium positions in the World Ice Climbing Championships and an unforgettable race with Jeremy Clarkson up Verdon Gorge on Top Gear.
Emmett comments: "Energy, determination, passion and character - the defining spirit of Team Jazz. We want the team to be an eclectic mix of talented British sports people who have a fresh new attitude and strive to be the best. You never know, hopefully the team will have a future world champion or Olympian one day."
Applicants are asked to download the application form from the new www.jazzapples.co.uk where they will have to list their past achievements and explain why they believe they deserve the sponsorship. People can also nominate someone they know who fits the bill. All applicants will be considered by a team of sports people which will be chaired by Tim Emmett. The first ten Team Jazz members will be selected at the end of October.
Completed forms plus a photo of the applicant need to be posted to Team Jazz, Impact Agency, 3 Bloomsbury Place, London, WC1A 2QL
