England Athletics Terms of Use

England Athletics Terms of Use

Who we are

We are England Athletics Ltd, a company registered in England under number 5583713, and our registered address is at Athletics House, Alexander Stadium, Walsall Road, Perry Barr, Birmingham, B42 2BE, UK (weusour).


These Terms of Use apply to the use of our website at www.englandathletics.org (the website) and to the Athletics 365, Schools Athletics and Leading Athletics applications used on mobile phones, tablets and other mobile devices (the apps) that we make available for download from any third party application store. This agreement also applies to any services accessible through the website or the app, unless separate or additional terms apply, in which case they will be displayed on-screen or be made accessible via a link.

By (if appropriate) downloading, or registering to use, or using, the website or the app, you confirm that you accept and agree to be bound by these terms and acknowledge that they constitute a legally binding contract between us and you (and, if relevant, any organisation – such as a school or club – on whose behalf you are acting). If you are acting on behalf of any organisation, you confirm that you have the necessary authority to bind that organisation.

These terms apply to any in-app purchases made using the app (for example, subscriptions and other resources that may be available via the app from time to time).

In this agreement, references to you (and your, etc.) means both you as an individual user and also the organisation on whose behalf you are acting (if any).

We may change these terms from time to time by changing them on the website.

These terms were last updated on 14th November 2017.

What the apps do

The Athletics 365, Schools Athletics and Leading Athletics apps provide education support to coaches teachers, leaders and others delivering athletics-based activities and sessions.

This includes suggested examples of good practice in the form of coaching / teaching cues, session / lesson plans and age / stage appropriate coaching and teaching support.

The app also provides signposting to wider youth based programmes and products offered by England Athletics and other third parties.  

Use of the apps

The apps may only be downloaded, accessed and used on a device owned or controlled by you and running the relevant operating system for which the apps concerned was designed, so you must make sure you have a compatible device which meets all the necessary technical specifications to enable you to download and use the apps.

The relevant apps (or upgrade) will be made available immediately and, therefore (subject to any cancellation right that the terms of service of the relevant third-party application store may allow you), you will have no right to change your mind and cancel once the download has started.

If you register with us, you must ensure that any registration details you provide are accurate. If you choose, or you are provided with, a log-on ID (such as a username and password or other identifier) for accessing or using the app(s), you must treat such information as confidential and must not reveal it to anyone else. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your log-on ID and must notify us immediately of any unauthorised use of which you become aware. We reserve the right to disable any log-on ID, at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of this agreement or if any details you provide for the purposes of registering as a user are, or appear to be, false.

We cannot and do not guarantee the continuous, uninterrupted or error-free operability of the apps, or that the apps will respond at a certain speed (since this depends on a number of factors outside our control).


Whilst some elements of each app are free, other elements of the apps will require in-app purchases. These will come in the form of either a one-off payment or a subscription. Subscriptions will be offered for the period one month, three months, annually (12 months) or a lifetime.

Price for each in-app purchase and subscription can be found within the app.

All subscriptions once charged are non-refundable.
