Help us represent TEAM ENGLAND at the World Championships -
It is with great pride and honour that we announce that Charlie & Sophie George have been selected as a student of the Personal Best Academy ‘School of Champions’ to represent England at the World Martial Art Championships this November.
Training preparations have already begun and we are excited that our athletes have the opportunity to perform on a World stage among top Martial Art athletes from around the World, with the potential of placing on an international podium.
Unfortunately, athletes in the sport of Martial Arts have to ‘self-fund’ any trips locally, nationally or internationally, which can prove to be very costly for parents and families involved. We have to personally cover the cost of travel, accommodation, competition fees, equipment, uniforms, tracksuits and additional training fees and usually attend tournaments on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, travelling around the country.
The PBA athletes will be working furiously in training this summer and aim to peak at the highest level ready for competition. However, we will also be working tirelessly to raise as much funding as possible through our official fund raising campaigns to enable our athletes to attend the World Championships. Our attendance at these championships will strictly be determined by the level of sponsorship we are able to raise before our registration deadline for the competition.
To help towards funding, each athlete has an individual sponsorship program / form and we ask on their behalf if you would kindly donate to the above athlete to help their individual fund raising, which will help them raise the required funds for competing internationally allowing them to represent Team England in their sport.
