Digital Athlete


The Digital Athlete programme helps address the scarcity of women in SportsTech by providing data skills, professional development and deep domain knowledge to female technologists. Aimed at women returners and supported by leading sports organisations and sport bodies, our Digital Athletes are a great addition to any team.  

 

Combining an understanding of the dynamics of the sector and its business, with data and analytics skills, and professional development to enable participants to work in the SportsTech environment, a Digital Athlete can combine a love of sport with a digital career.
