What Are Athletics Networks?
Athletics Networks are clusters of athletics clubs and running clubs working strategically with other local key partners to develop the sport of athletics in that area. Athletics Networks will be multiple clubs (often comprising of a mixture of track and field and off-track) working together in each area. Athletics Networks will seek to drive up the quality of coaching, links with community groups such as schools, competition in clubs (inter and intra club) and also seek to develop the all round quality of provision within clubs in the network.
The ethos behind Athletics Networks is all about working in partnership. By demonstrating that you are working in this manner there is greater chance of accessing local and national funding from a variety of partners.
