Did you know:
- Athletics is the base for all sporting movement.
- Elevating Athletics is a creative and practical resource pack designed to help you bring the sport to life and to make it accessible to the young athletes – or potential athletes – you work with!
- The acclaimed programme, including focused workshops, can really help you plan and deliver sessions for youngsters of all abilities helping them develop the skills required to run, jump and throw, simple activities which underpin the vast majority of sports.
- The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games has inspired us and we really need to capitalise on that interest if we want to rise to the challenge of nurturing potential medal winners in 2016. We need to make athletics inclusive and engaging; we want to emphasise participation and enjoyment, and we want to reach out to a much wider audience of young people.
- Everyone has a part to play!
