The athletes she trains either want to learn more about their sport and practice, or go onto competition pathways. Janet is both a Paralympic and mainstream athletics coach so she is in a unique position to bring all her skills, encouragement, enthusiasm and positivity across all athletic programmes in the district for the benefit of Bradfordians, Yorkshire and the UK.

Athletes from across Bradford and Keighley have gone to Regional, National, European, World and Olympic, Paralympic and Special Olympics competitions and returned with podium places and experiences money can’t buy.

Janet helps make this happen week in and week out, motivating Bradfordians to go out and achieve their full potential in their athletic discipline.
