Sport for social change
Young people are our future and the environment in which they live undoubtedly influences them.
That’s why at Track Academy we encourage our young people to make positive changes in spite of challenging surroundings. This is empowering and rewarding for the individual, and immensely beneficial for society on the whole. It means that the true potential of our young people can be unlocked and realised.
Everybody understands the importance of a good education. However, for some young people the motivation to learn can prove challenging. Through regular education sessions, delivered by empathetic and dedicated tutors, Track Academy helps students stay on track, establishing and reaching their desired goals.
The power of sport
Our athletics programmes enjoy recognition and support from many of the world’s greatest athletes both past and present. At Track Academy we recognise that using sport as a tool for social change really can transform lives.
Confidence, teamwork, preparation, evaluation and much more are all essential components of our sporting programmes.
A big thank you to our sponsors
