Once youngsters are identified into the foundation our team provide help, advice and financial support to create a great path way to combating many social health issues as well as healthy exercise through a mentoring process. The Tessa Sanderson Foundation and Academy works with the parents to look at all the different background of its youngsters. Through this process the Foundation help with improving important life skills such as communication, studies, mannerism and social behaviour to name a few.
Whilst this process is ongoing the youngsters are further recommended and encouraged by our coaches to join a sports club to help them enjoy their sport even more, meet new people and help breakdown the social and health barriers that effects young people nowadays.
The Tessa Sanderson Foundation and Academy’s priority is not based on finding champions, however many of the TSFA youngsters who have been talent identified by our sports coaches have now gone on to become county champions and national title holders for their age group whilst continuing in further education through the aid and support of the foundation. In addition our sports coaches are growing increasingly confident that many more youngsters are likely to win national titles for their age group in the near future.
