Durham Institute of Sport Athlete support scheme in now open for applications. This is the 13th Round for DIS supporting the County’s most talented athletes.

Durham Institute of Sport (DIS) supports the development of the county’s talented athletes and helps them achieve their sporting potential. We work hand-in-hand with the best performers, coaches and sports practitioners, and provide support and assistance to optimise training, preparation and performance.

DIS is specifically intended to support athletes performing and working at county level through to international level, and as the performance pathways for different sports vary hugely, the relevant National Governing Body (NGB) of sport is consulted to ensure that support is offered at the right level.

DIS is delivered in partnership by Durham County Council, County Durham Sport, Durham University and Leisureworks.
