Have you got what it takes?

Is high performance sport in your DNA?

Vantage Windows & Doors is proud to bring you the Bond AdVantage, a 12-month mentorship programme with Olympic Champion, Hamish Bond.

We are looking for our future elite athletes on the cusp of breaking through who would benefit from the insights of a high performance professional. The Bond AdVantage will offer one lucky winner the opportunity of a lifetime to learn from someone who has been at the pinnacle of sport for over a decade. 

The mentorship programme includes: 

  • Face-to-face meeting with Hamish in Cambridge to establish what the goal and focus will be for the next 12 months
  • Four quarterly reviews via phone call to Hamish to check in with progress
  • Four personal training sessions with an agreed professional in their field
  • Four dietician meetings with an agreed professional in their field
  • Sponsorship and media training course with the Vantage Sponsorship and Events team
  • Bond AdVantage training kit.

The nature of how the prize will roll out is largely dependent on the location and sport of the winner.

Not only does the Bond AdVantage winner receive benefits from the best in the business - the top three finalists will be brought to Hamish's home town of Cambridge on Monday 30 September with a parent or coach of choice.  This all-expenses paid day with Hamish will see the finalists explore the ins and outs of high performance life and attend an interview with an elite panel of professionals to present why they should be selected.

The Bond AdVantage is open to athletes between the ages of 13 - 20 years from anywhere in the country, from any sporting code. Complete stages One & Two before Monday 22 July 2019.
