From September 2016, we will be arranging regular competitions for children in Reception – Year 6 that will provide competition experience to the athletes. These competitions will replace the end of term assessments, as results from these competitions will replicate the assessment results that would have been completed during academy training time.
Removing end of term assessments will create more training and coaching time for athletes during the academy term and allow athletes to interact with other academy members who attend on different days.
For all athletes in the specialist classes we monitor their progress based on competition results. There is a website called the 'power of 10' where any results from graded athletics events are stored online and ranked for both Wales and the UK for each age group to give all competitive athletes an additional aim.
Please visit www.thepowerof10.info and type in the athletes name to view the competitive profile.
