Athlete Overview

Athlete Development Pathway

The ultimate ambition is for Welsh athletes to compete & perform to their best at the Commonwealth Games and represent British Athletics at global championships, by consistently transitioning athletes through the performance pathway. Each athlete in receipt of support is required to sign an athlete agreement that includes the expectations of them as a supported athlete and also what they can access from Welsh Athletics. Support is reviewed annually. The levels, and how they link together, are shown below:

This document sets out the entry and exit points for each of these stages so athletes, their parents, and coaches can see clearly what they need to do to help athletes progress. We are working on and will publish a complementary document in due course detailing how we will be delivering our Coach Development Programme.
