sport:exl is the name of the Essex Foundation for young athletes.
The vision of sport:exl is to award grants and bursaries to aspiring and talented young athletes in the county who need a helping hand to reach their potential. The sport:exl grant making criteria is simple, directing its assistance to those who need it most, from young athletes not yet recognised by the National Governing Body for their sport, to those already at their peak and who may be a future Olympic or Paralympic Champion.
sport:exl, through ActiveEssex, is working with partners including the National Governing Bodies of Sport, Sports Aid, Sport England, schools and local authorities to identify and recognise local talent.
Investment in sport:exl is generated through engaging with local businesses, local authorities and from other local sources.
