World Youth athletes


10 November 2009

Young athletes with the potential to deliver global medals for Britain will be selected to the new UKA Futures Programme unveiled today. As part of the recent restructuring of UKA’s World Class Performance Programme (WCPP), and the drive towards more targeted support for athletes and their coaches, UKA has introduced the UKA Futures to underpin the WCPP.

The programme, which will commence in December 2009, will typically target athletes in the 17 to 20 age range with flexibility towards athletes who have come late to the sport, are in late developing events or are deemed an exceptional case for support.

Athletes and their coaches will be supported in their individual development plans, allowing for more flexibility and individual discretion around distribution of resources.  Catering for individual circumstances and needs, coaches and athletes will have responsibility to manage their own budgets and have much greater ownership of their own support programme.

Up to 40 coach-athlete pairs will be selected onto the Futures programme to start in December 2009.
