3rd February: As many of you are aware, the ESAA is currently without any sponsors - everyone is suffering from the effects of Covid19 and finding financial help has become more and more difficult as businesses struggle to survive.

It has become apparent from the outpouring of support across Social Media, that ex athletes, parents and coaches want to support the continuation of our association. With this in mind, many parents have suggested setting up a just giving page to donate. There has been a small working party of parents and ESAA officers to set this up and donations are coming in thick and fast.

We would be grateful if you could donate, share and support this - our main aim is to assist with the financial cost of ESAA Track & Field Championships 2022. Please click the button below to make your contribution

The Athletics Museum launched

15th August: Telling the stories of athletics - everybody can set a personal best.

English Schools’ Athletic Association and The Athletics Museum are pleased to announce that their online exhibition is now live at www.theathleticsmuseum.org.uk.  Following the cancellation of the English Schools Championships, the proposed physical exhibition that was to be displayed there has been moved online.

  The first online exhibition traces the history of the English Schools’ Athletics Association (ESAA) championships; stories and anecdotes from participants, archive material from its inauguration in 1925 up to the modern day, and past champions and athletes who have gone on to achieve further success, in both track and field and 16 other sports. There’s also a look back and indeed forward at Tokyo 1964, 1991 and 2022.
