There will be TASS Briefing/Induction Day – 4 Sep 18 for all Army TASS athletes and this year it will be held in Aldershot at the Army School of Physical Training. Further details will be distributed next week but for planning purposes, the day will commence at 0930 hrs and will be complete by 1500 hrs. As the TASS delivery model is currently being reviewed with some potential changes from the previous delivery programme it is strongly recommended that a unit representative also attends this Briefing Day.

Those unsuccessful for this year’s AESP TASS programme will now be considered for a BAe Sports Scholarship in order to further support them in their sport.
