Second year join scottishathletics pathway

Congratulations to Josh Kerr and Cameron Tindle who are selected to join the Scottishathletics Pathway

scottishathletics are ready to welcome another intake for our Youth Academy.
The project was launched 12 months ago with the intention being to better support and direct young athletes and their coaches and parents as they progress towards senior status.
Our ‘2013’ intake from last Summer featured 12 athletes from the U17 age. scottishathletics aimed to work with and support those athletes, coaches and parents for a two-year period.
The principal trigger for consideration to join the Youth Academy is a Scottish U17 athlete who has achieved the Power of 10 ‘UK 10 Target’ in applicable events on the national rankings. Under exceptional circumstances, and at the discretion of the Director of Coaching, other athletes may be considered.
Now a ‘2014’ group has been identified including the likes of Josh Kerr, who recently broke the Scottish U17 age group record for 1500m after it had stood for 27 years, and promising sprinters like Alisha Rees and Cameron Tindle.
These athletes will formally join the rest of the Youth Academy next month at the opening training camp of the year; and there will also be involvement for their coaches and parents.
