Cardiac Risk for Young People 

There have been instances of young athletes suffering potentially fatal heart conditions without being aware that they are at risk.  England Athletics would like to make you aware of a piece of work that has been undertaken by UKA.

Go to the ‘Competition’ page to find the full information and links to the UK Athletics guide.

Athlete’s Guide to University Athletics

Recognising a need to support young athletes who are making the move in to higher education, England Athletics are pleased to announce a new Athlete’s Guide to University Athletics, which has been produced by a small working group in the south including staff and volunteers. University_Guide_for_Athletes

Athletics faces a large drop-off in athletes around the ages of 18-23 (like many sports).  Whilst the retention issues at this age group go wider than just university, it is hoped that the guidance and information provided will help to reduce that drop-off to some extent.

Volunteers needed!
