The six Cranleigh pupils who are privileged to be taking part in the Daman Future Champions 2017/ 18 programme attended their second weekend clinic today at NYUAD, hosted by Olympic Gold Medalist, Dame Kelly Holmes.

The Future Champions scheme, which was launched earlier this year, mentors young people of high potential in the hope they can excel in the sporting world and also become inspirational figures within their communities. Today students had a mentoring session with Dame Kelly, as well as specialised media training and nutritional advice. Dame Kelly also had the students exerting themselves in a range of physically demanding tasks. The students came away having learnt some invaluable skills, and are already looking forward to the next clinic.
