Elite Athlete Development Programme

The Elite Athlete Development Programme identifies the highest performing athletes within the club and aims to facilitate their ongoing development and performance. The programme aims to aid developing junior athletes who are showing potential to become elite level senior athletes and also to support established senior athletes.

The financial support provided will generally be exclusively available for the reasons of travel to competitions. Other non-monetary elements are in place to positively influence other facets of the athletes’ ongoing development and success.

Inclusion in the programme permits athletes to draw on the time of the Development Team to whatever extent is necessary to contribute towards their ongoing development within the sport of athletics. The current structures in place in the club are designed to be ‘athlete centred’ with priority towards the athletes identified on the programme.

Guernsey Athletics Development Officer Tom Druce said of the programme: “The key thing for many athletes can be having the ability to tap into the resources within the club such as the Development Team of myself and Lee [Merrien]. Whilst the funding for trips is an obvious benefit in terms of accessing the correct competitions, I see the advice on offer to athletes on the programme as equally important. If I cannot provide the required advice or information, generally I can get in touch with someone who can.”

Athletes are supported at senior level based upon their IAAF points score and/or AAA grade, whilst at junior level the support tier is based purely on the latter.
