Talented Athlete and Coach Pathway

November 2019 sees the launch of an 18 month pilot scheme within the Talent Pathway of a programme designed to support a group of gifted athletes aged primarily between 16-23 in the Birmingham and Leeds regions.

The Hubs are the result of collaboration between England and British Athletics who have restructured their Talent Pathways and along with the University, London Marathon Events and TASS, have come together to launch the Talent Hubs, one being based at the University of Birmingham’s and the other at Leeds Becket University.

Supported by Sport England funding and following the success of the both University’s Charter Mark awarded by England Athletics last year, the pilots aim to create a satellite hub site for local sportspersons in order to develop their potential with catered support, sessions and coaching.
