Our Athletics Academy develops each Athlete in all aspects of the sport in a fun and inspiring environment. Sessions with our excellent coaches and sessions with Dean give each Athlete the opportunity to make improvements in disciplines they already have skills within as well as develop skills in those they don’t. The programme breaks events down so Athletes understand the mechanics behind their actions plus an understanding of how to maximise their potential, producing a rounded, adaptable Athlete. Dean will be with us for 50% of the Academy so there is loads of opportunity for young Athletes to get to know him, benefit from his knowledge and pick his brain about what it is like to compete at the highest level.
The running track where Sir Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile on 6 May 1954, when it was known as the Iffley Road track, the Oxford University Sports Complex is the perfect location to run our popular Athletics Academy.
