    50. 50. “All the young athletes engage very quickly and enthusiastically to the structure of 365 and its progression through the levels” Bedford and County AC<br />
    51. 51. “The philosophy and structure in many ways is very similar to what is already being delivered within existing groups. It however is slightly broader, more formal in it’s coverage, and has area like core strength, lifestyle & behaviour that were not previously fully covered” Bedford and County AC<br />
    52. 52. “The club is very pleased with the Athletics 365 model and the way the pilot has worked out and the Academy will become a long term part of the club. We are sure that we have provided a long term sustainable model to progress our young athletes and are also sure that the club itself will benefit long term by producing more competent athletes” Wreake Academy<br />
    53. 53. UKA Level 2<br />“The children have enjoyed the various tasks through Athletics 365, are keen to keep having a go to improve, and get up to the next level which is great, as it is getting them enthusiastic about the sport. The best part about it is the increases in skills, which may not have been properly taught which can help through any sport they may wish to do” North of Tyne Athletics Network<br />
    54. 54. UKA Level 2<br />“The 365 course has been fantastic in encouraging people in getting over initial fears of coaching activity to children when they are unsure of the activity or have not done them before” North of Tyne Athletics Network<br />
    55. 55. UKA Level 2<br />“the key thing for a young athletes is they get a chance to try everything...that all rounded approach can make a stronger, all-rounded athlete” Paula Radcliffe<br />
    56. 56. UKA Level 2<br />“This is not necessarily about Athletics, this is about athleticism. To be David Beckham or Roger Federer you have to be able to run quickly; you have to have hand eye coordination; you have got to be strong; you have got to be supple and that's the basis of track and field” Seb Coe<br />
