Club Support webinars and forums

We understand that many of our affiliated clubs will be facing unplanned challenges at this time and will be looking to maintain contact with members to encourage them to stay active and stay engaged with the club. To help assist clubs, our Club Support Team has produced a series of Club Support webinars and Virtual Club forums.

The Club Support webinars focus on specific issues affecting clubs at this time. Club personnel can scroll down to view the schedule and to sign-up to these webinars online. You can also scroll down this page to view recordings of a selection of our previous Club Support webinars.

Our Virtual Club forums have been set up to help bring clubs in each of the regions together – to enable clubs to deliver new information, to network and to share ideas and best practice. Scroll down to see the schedule and booking links, with forums specific to each region. Sign-up is via Athletics Hub and the forums are held via a link to a Microsoft Teams meeting.
