Lycetts Leadership & Team Champions Award

Lycetts are delighted to be continuing our support of the Lycetts Leadership & Team Champions Awards which celebrates the training yards that have a strong team ethos

In partnership with The National Trainers Federation (NTF) we  are pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 Lycetts Leadership & Team Champions Awards.

Entries have now been received and are in the process of being judged.  Winners will be invited to a prize giving and hospitality event at Sandown Park Racecourse on 14th September 2022, hosted by the NTF and Lycetts Insurance Brokers.

“It is a huge privilege to have been involved in the creation of this program and see its purposes translate into real benefits for the trainer’s businesses and their employees alike.  Although the awards seek to find winners, in fact every team that participates wins because the ideals and principals stick and produce real and measurable results.

Persevering with the goal to have every training operation participate will benefit the industry as a whole and make jobs in racing an ever more attractive destination”.

Piers Plunket, Divisional Director, Lycetts

The Awards will again celebrate racehorse training yards which cultivate the best team ethos, exhibit outstanding leadership qualities and demonstrate innovative approaches to management. This year there are three Awards categories.

Lycetts Team Champions Award

This year, the award provides an opportunity for racing staff to tell us about their team and to gain the recognition they deserve. The Lycetts Team Champions Award is recognising and celebrating the best teams on racehorse training yards, regardless of the size of the yard and from the staff’s perspective. A £4000 prize awaits the winning team.

Lycetts Leadership Award

There are four sections that make up the Lycetts Leadership Award and Excellence Awards. These sections are based on The Winning Approach, a set of industry standards in management and employment practices. Trainers can enter just one or multiple sections and the entry process has been further simplified this year.

A £4000 prize awaits the winning Trainer for their yard.
