Sport Hampshire & IoW


Athletics is a sport for all ages and abilities. The Hampshire & IOW Athletics Network is a strong network of clubs in Hampshire providing opportunities for competitive track and field athletics as well as cross country and road running.

A strong volunteer and coaching workforce ensures that there are opportunities to get involved in the sport at every level. Athletics depends upon the commitment and enthusiasm of volunteers and participation is both rewarding and challenging.

Details of coaching courses and officials courses are available on the National Governing Body, England Athletics website. Plus, speak to your local club to find out about other ways to get involved.
