Sports Training Passes

Sports Training Passes are available to Gateshead residents or those who are first claim members of a Gateshead based sports club who have achieved the performance criteria at regional competition level or above*. They allow full use of some GO Gateshead services - please see the application form for details.

Sports Training Passes are awarded for 12-months from the date of the eligible competition. Applications using competitions that took place more than 12 months ago can therefore not be considered.

Please note that it can take up to two weeks to process / verify applications from date of receipt before a pass can be issued. Access cannot be granted to facilities once a pass has expired even if you have an application pending. Those re-applying for a Sports Training Pass should take these timescales into consideration when submitting their forms.
