Leading Athletics

What is it?

While not a formal qualification, the Leading Athletics workshop is aimed at individuals who are interested in an introduction to the skills needed in leading athletics activities for young athletes.

This 3 hour athletics leader course is supported by an interactive App which provides course resources, ideas for leading activities and the Game Cards used on the workshop.

Leading Athletics is perfect for anyone wishing to lead athletic activities in support of a Coaching Assistant or Athletics Coach. A must for those new to the sport, the resources include information on the roles and responsibilities of a leader, how to lead a fun and inclusive athletics session, and further information on how to develop your leadership skills. Crammed with ‘Top Tips’ for effective delivery, the support resource also explores the key principles of running, jumping and throwing events whilst providing technical information which support these principles.

Our leadership in athletics coaching journey is supported by British Athletics’ coaching qualifications.

The Game Cards

The progressive Game Cards included in the full support resource demonstrate how to set up fun and engaging activities, all designed to help introduce young athletes to the fundamentals of running, jumping and throwing.
