Regional Councils

Regional Councils play a key role in the Governance of Welsh Athletics. Every Region has a nominated person for each discipline group who will represent the views of the Region. The Regional Councils are also a place for clubs to discuss and share challenges and opportunities for future development.

The Regions also have two nominated representatives on the General Council – ensuring that clubs, coaches, officials and volunteers views, concerns and successes can be shared with others across Wales.

Every club can attend a Regional Council and they are encouraged to contact their Regional Council to see what support their Region can provide to them.

Every Region supports a competition structure, including Regional and Inter-Regional Championships – events that play a key role in athlete development pathway across all age groups.

Full details on the Regional Councils can be found in the byelaws of Welsh Athletics.
