Youth Talent Programme

Posted by Trevor Cummings on 30 September 2020

It gives me great pleasure to be able to announce that Ella Fryer has been accepted on to the English Athletics Youth Talent Programme. This is down to her fantastic approach to training and racing. I'd also like to thank all the coaches at the club who have helped Ella. This isn't just the middle distance coaches but also the sprints coaches who have helped her with such things, as the use of blocks for 200M and 400M races. Below is a short synopsis of the programme.

The Youth Talent Programme (YTP) is the first step on the Talent pathway designed to meet the needs of identified, talented English athletes aged between 16 and 18 years of age and their coaches. The programme focuses on developing a dual career for the athlete through fulfilling their potential within the sport and also in their education and employability.

The programme aims to complement club provision and add value to the athlete and coach plan to help develop a broad range of skills, abilities and behaviours needed for senior success. This is delivered through practical training sessions with likeminded athletes in their event group, performance support sessions and workshops. There is also the opportunity for coaches to access additional qualifications, mentoring and support delivered through the England Athletics Talent Event Leads.
