On the 5th March 2016 we had the pleasure of hosting the final Talent Pathway coaching sessions with Lee Kerry form Preston Innovations on our prestigious Gold Lake.

The Angling Trust England Talent Development Plan 2011–17 sets out how angling will develop and accelerate talent resulting in more talented performers moving on to elite programmes and success.

The long-term aim is to raise the standard of sporting achievement in angling and ultimately improve international performance. This will be achieved by providing a seamless pathway from grass roots participation to elite level and prioritise the following areas:

  • selection of talented anglers at key stages of their development
  • pathway to develop talented anglers which includes competitive opportunities and supported by a coach development structure

England is well represented in the Home, European and World Championships for junior, senior, intermediate, female, veteran and disabled teams in all three disciplines. However in 2009 the Angling Trust identified that there was no structured, complete pathway in place to develop and prepare young talented anglers to compete at the highest level.
