It’s your sport – get involved! There are so many ways of getting involved with LUCA beyond just competing in our events. The success of our sport is reliant on the hard work of volunteers in a wide array of capacities.
Coaches are an essential resource for any club. Often, athletics clubs at universities find it difficult to find and pay coaches. One solution is to train students to coach their club. Funding is available through us for students to train as coaches and give their time back to their club.
Officials are an essential resource for any race. Without them, races cannot happen. Every year we struggle to get enough officials to stage our events. Do something rewarding and train as an official. We have funded places available for students who can volunteer their time at some of our events.
Clubs need strong, experienced leadership in order to develop. We are working with our partners at England Athletics and in industry to host club leadership seminars. Watch this space!
We believe that we should give something back to the community. The wider London athletics scene has always been very hospitable to university athletics and we want to give something back to the community. We are working on getting volunteering opportunities listed in our website. Watch this space!
