An interactive online development programme for club leaders within England Athletics affiliated clubs
England Athletics are investing in our affiliated club network to develop safe, sustainable and successful clubs, with excellent leadership and governance, providing enjoyable opportunities for people to participate and excel.
To aid this we offer a Club Leadership Programme – available to those currently holding leadership positions within clubs, and to those with aspirations to move into a club leadership position in the future.
The programme starts in January 2022 and consists of a series of online training webinars, networking opportunities and access to resources. Throughout the programme, experts within their respective fields will be joining us to impart their knowledge and ideas, and to facilitate networking between clubs and club leaders.

Joining the programme
We look for a whole club commitment. Clubs are expected to nominate two individuals who are free to take part in all of the sessions. One of these nominees should hold a current club leadership position of Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, Trustee, Director or President. The second attendee may be a committee member, or an individual lined up for a leadership role in the coming years. This is a fantastic personal development opportunity for club volunteers.
The Club Leadership programme applications closed on 10 December 2021. Successful Clubs will be notified early January 2022 and will be sent further information on the programme.
