Staffordshire Stars Squad

The STARS Squad is a programme put together for high school pupils who are performing at a national standard in their chosen sport. 

Newcastle-under-Lyme College runs the programme for pupils from Newcastle-under-Lyme and Staffordshire Moorlands High Schools. This year, 33 pupils have been part of the squad.

The aim of the squad is to provide an opportunity for young athletes to further develop potential in their sport through organised sessions, and to share their experiences with other talented athletes. 

Previous squads have attended:

  • Strength and conditioning sessions
  • Funding talks
  • Physiological testing
  • Cycling as the Manchester Velodrome
  • Inspirational events and have met Olympic and World Champion athletes.

Next STARS squad session:
