The Welsh Schools Athletics Association provides competition opportunities for secondary school pupils across Wales at both Cross Country and Track & Field. Schools are a central part of Welsh Athletics' commitment to bring athletics to all. Opportunities exist for both teaching staff and pupils starting out on their journey through the king of sports. At Secondary School level, both teachers and pupils have the opportunity to develop in the sport of athletics - be it through key initiatives, competitions or formal educational courses.

The National contact for Welsh Schools is Andrew Jenkins - email:
