When the Athlete Mentor first visits your school, as well as explaining how the initiative works and helping you with your project, they’ll introduce the six keys to success which have been developed in partnership with the British Athletes Commission.

The six keys to success are:

  1. Mental toughness
  2. Hunger to achieve
  3. People skills
  4. Sports and life knowledge
  5. Breaking barriers
  6. Planning for success

The six keys to success are designed to help young people develop valuable life skills that will help them in and outside of school, now and into the future.

The Athlete Mentor will use the six keys to success when they come to do your Project Visit and work with your project group to help them build valuable life skills. You can also use them to support your project if you wish.
