LAA encourages athletes to compete when they are ready. There are a number of disciplines to try: summer track and field, winter cross country and sportshall. LAA enters a league for each of these disciplines.
Your club coach will let you know more about upcoming events, plus club emails are sent to members with details about how to get involved.
Athletes can also enter stand alone events called ‘Open Meetings’. You can find these meetings on many athletics clubs’ websites. Athletes must be affiliated to England Athletics (EA) to compete, so that your results can be officially recorded.
