Team Spirit Community is launched

Team Spirit is a dedicated Facebook Community group from England Athletics, which aims to bring volunteers within athletics and running together. The Team Spirit Community can be found atwww.facebook.com/groups/TeamSpiritEA

Free resources for clubs to promote volunteer opportunities

Between July and September, England Athletics, funded by Spirit of 2012 are encouraging clubs to host a Volunteering Open Day or Officials Taster Session as a way of inspiring more people to become volunteers within your clubs. And to help you we have a range of free resources you can order including T-shirts, pens, badges and wristbands.

Inspiration Clubs announced

England Athletics and Team Personal Best are delighted to announce the Inspiration Clubs who will be leading the way in disability athletics and running this summer. The clubs are receiving a package of support and equipment to enhance their delivery of disability athletics and inclusive provision.

Host an Open Day or Officials Taster session to encourage new volunteers

Do you feel like you don't have enough volunteers? Always the same people helping you out? If so, hosting a Volunteer Open Day or Officials Taster Session at your club could be a great way of encouraging more people to volunteer as well as raising awareness of how people in the community can get involved in volunteering opportunities within your club.

Reminder: Join our Volunteering Support scheme to help make volunteering the best experience possible

England Athletics, funded by Spirit of 2012, are looking for between 20-30 people to join us on the first leg of a very exciting adventure! Supporting volunteers, helping them to settle in and feel valued in a club setting is so important and so we're pleased to announce this opportunity following on from our Innovation Day last month, where a group of club volunteers came together to share their experiences and ideas. You can now sign up for the first wave training day on 1st July in London

Host an Inspiration Day at your club

Passionate about everyone getting involved in our sport? Want to do something to celebrate and access a small grant to help? For the first time in history one city will host back to back Championships in recognition of this country's love of our sport. England Athletics and the Team Personal Best campaign (teampersonalbest.org) are inviting clubs to hold Inspiration Days (ParaAthletics Inclusive Days) to encourage their communities to get involved and try our sport this summer.
