Athletics is the latest sport to be added to the DSActive programme.
In 2017 we ran an athletics summer camp near our national office in Teddington and it proved to be very popular. The sessions were led by coaches from England Athletics and gave the participants the option to try activities that they had never had the chance to before. The success and popularity of the summer camp was the inspiration behind launching athletics clubs across England and Wales.
Athletics is a very inclusive sport and can be adapted to suit any age and ability. Athletics uses many motor skills which are used in everyday life, such as running, jumping and throwing. The sport is popular with both genders and we are sure it will be a very popular addition to the DSActive programme.
