Welcome to Merseyside Athletics Network
Merseyside is located in the North West of England. The County is divided into five local authorities: Knowlsey, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral. For the purpose of sport, the borough of Halton is also included in Merseyside.
In Merseyside there is one pro-active County Sports Partnership (CSP), six Local Authorities (LA) and fifteen School Sports Partnerships (SSP), together with the support of clubs providing numerous athletics activities and competitions. The athletics club is at the heart of the sport and in the County there are thirty affiliated athletics and road running clubs, including five Clubmark accredited vibrant track and field specific clubs.
The Merseyside Athletics Network is a well-established county athletics development group which works alongside the Merseyside County AA. The forum was formed over six years ago with the primary aim of providing an opportunity for local authorities to report the developments in their respective boroughs. The forum has developed from a reporting focus to an agenda which is driven by a collective club lead.
Through the success of MAF development work, the forum has established strong partnerships with key external partners including Local Authorities, County Sports Partnership and the Education Sector to enhance athletics across the County. MAF’s strong external partnerships boost development activity in athletics and add significant value to the momentum already established towards the 2012 legacy.
