Support, advice and information for clubs in the East is available from England Athletics. Much of this work is carried out by your local Club and Coach Support Officer. To see their contact details please click here.
Programmes include our Flying Coach programme which sees a top level coach visiting a club or group of clubs to give advice and support to both coaches and athletes, and the Athletics Networks scheme which sees funding given to clubs working together to promote and develop athletics in their area. More information on these projects and others are available here.
How inclusive is your club?
The England Athletics Disability Action Plan launched in December 2010 outlines a goal to support clubs to actively recruit and appropriately integrate athletes with different needs and impairments, and provide quality athletics opportunities – without the obligation for every club to cater for all impairment groups and events. In order to support clubs with this goal England Athletics has recently launched an Inclusive Club Health Check document. Click here to read more.
