Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme

The Jack Petchey Achievement Award scheme was formed to recognise “extreme endeavour and to help young people to help themselves”.  Infinity Triathlon Club has been successful in applying to be able to make achievement awards to its club members under this scheme.  We are now able to present a number of awards to individuals within the club during the year. Awards are not necessarily for the fastest or most popular individuals, but are intended to recognise those young people (aged 11-25) who have demonstrated characteristics such as commitment, hard work, persistence or made a positive contribution to the club and/or other people. 

To learn more about the Jack Petchey foundation, visit their website at www.jackpetcheyfoundation.org.uk

Each award winner will receive a framed certificate, pin badge and be invited to an awards ceremony. The winner will also be given a financial award to be used to fund one or more projects from the current club ‘wish list’.

To nominate...
Anyone can nominate someone within the club (children, parents, coaches), the only criteria is that the person you are nominating is aged between 11 and 25.

The Jack Petchey Foundation was established 1999.

Their Vision
Our vision is of a world where young people have high aspirations; the opportunity to develop their potential; the chance to be architects of their own future; to play a full part in society and to be valued and recognised for the positive things they achieve.

Their Mission
To enable young people (aged 11 – 25 years in London and Essex), to achieve their potential by inspiring, investing in, developing and promoting activities that increase their personal, social, emotional and physical development.

Their Values
The Jack Petchey Foundation draws on the ideology, vision and values of its Patron Sir Jack Petchey CBE who epitomises the saying: “If you think you can, you can!”

They seek to:

  • Inspire and raise the aspirations of young people.
  • Affirm, reward and celebrate achievement.
  • Value young people and those who work with them, advocating their views and putting young peoples’ voice at the centre of our work.
  • Develop young peoples’ confidence, motivating them to take on new challenges and to believe in themselves.
  • Be positive and promote a positive perspective on life.
  • Be inclusive, working at grass roots and building communities.
  • Promote a culture of ‘giving something back’.
  • Strive for excellence in our work.
