Track Academy delivers a high quality, affordable and holistic training programme to local communities aged 10 (primary school year 6) to 21 years old, which is not matched anywhere else in Europe. We help the most deprived children and young people in London fulfil their potential in life through sport and have been transforming their lives since 2011.
We provide a strong emphasis on three disciplines of athletics: ‘Run, Jump, Throw’, with the introduction of group swaps to encourage the development of inter-group communication to widen experiences of the student athletes.
Track Academy not only hosts indoor and outdoor meets twice a year, but also encourages athletes to compete in track and field events locally; Middlesex, South of England and Nationals competitions ranging from U13, U15, U17, U20, U23 and seniors.
Track Academy is affiliated with a registered competing club based in London. Athletes are issued with an England Athletics (EA number) which is uploaded onto the ‘Power of 10’ website when competing. The ‘Power of 10’ provides UK targets and ranking positions and is known to motivate competitors, coaches and clubs.
Once a year, in an opportunity of a life-time, senior athletes are invited to train abroad amongst elite international athletes with their coaches. Warm Weather Training overseas is not a holiday camp, but a training camp to gain learning experiences of new techniques, a chance to discover strength and abilities in warmer climates as well as an opportunity to re-charge and focus on techniques and speed drills.
Track At Home
Amidst the Covid 19 lockdown, the need for social distancing and the uncertainty about when training will resume, Track Academy has transitioned to virtual training via Instagram. The training times have remained the same, incorporating body conditioning, circuit training, drills and core workouts hosted by our trusted coaches. We have also dedicated some weekends to invite guest influencers from the fitness industry ranging from yoga, boxercise, and fit for purpose discussions on rotation. The Instagram virtual training is free of charge and exclusive to our members. For more information about how to join, please visit Sign Up via our home page or call us on 07956 715052.
Due to the pandemic caused by Covid-19, Track Academy like many other organisations have had to adjust to the troubling times. Following the advice from the government, we are still providing all our services (athletic training, mentorship and educational services) but virtually! We will continue to be virtual until further notice.
Our new Instagram pages @MultiSkillsAtHome and @TrackAtHome feature live sessions for our usual Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday sessions, followed by different challenges set out for our student athletes, and occasional sessions on our feed by our very own coaches.
On a weekly basis, videos are posted based around our Life Skills Builders. Life Skills Builders are a new initiative that has recently been introduced, it aims to encourage and teach our student athletes to learn a new skill each week that will build them up for their future.
Each week our student athletes are taught a new skill, some of which include team work, presentation, staying positive etc. The videos explain the life skills builder for the week, and they are either given a task to complete or given a food for thought, for them to later apply to their daily lives at home.
