Gateshead Athletics Network
Birtley AC are strongly committed to working with Gateshead Athletic Network to deliver the following:-

  • Employment of several Development Coaches to organise and run a wide variety of athletics initiatives to include community delivery, schools delivery and club delivery.
  • The Development coaches will be managed and paid by Gateshead Council and will report back to the Gateshead Athletics Network.
  • The Gateshead Athletics Network will pull together several key partners including Gateshead/Whickham school sport partnership, England Athletics, Gateshead Council and Gateshead Athletics clubs.
  • Through this network meeting on a quarterly basis this will allow the coaches work programmes to be planned effectively and appropriate links with clubs and local club coaches developing school club links for all sessions delivered.
  • To support volunteer Continued Professional Development (CPD) programmes and communication channels specifically for club personnel (for example, Safeguarding & Protecting Children, A Club For All, Book Keeping for Club Treasurers, Newsletter, First Aid courses, E Bulletins, Website etc).
  • Athletic Network coaches to attend joint coaching sessions on a monthly basis.


We have a very good school-club partnership with Lord Lawson Academy on Birtley Lane in Birtley. Not only do we hold all of our club nights there, but the school provides the venue for the annual DABGC Cross Country Championships, and they have recently installed a long jump pit which is for joint use of the Academy and Birtley Athletics Club.

The club also has strong links with Birtley Hub, a resources centre located in Birtley and the location of our monthly meetings.
