About The Youth Advisory Group

The Youth Advisory Group is a group of 14 young people (aged 16-25) working in partnership with British Athletics and partner organisations to represent young people within athletics.

We work with British Athletics in ensuring that the products and services the organisation delivers are relevant to the needs of young people of all backgrounds, roles and experience within the sport.

The aims of the group are:

  • Provide a route for young people to suggest ideas and solutions to issues in athletics
  • Work together to ensure athletics provides young people with a positive and enjoyable experience
  • Act as an accessible and approachable group to receive thoughts, suggestions and opinions from young people within athletics
  • Recognise, promote and advocate young people within athletics
  • Support young people in getting involved in administrative and management level positions within the sport
  • Provide innovative, youth focussed solutions to current issues within athletics
  • Raise the profiles of young coaches and officials
  • Provide inspiration for all young people involved in athletics
