Regional Talent Academies

Regional Talent Academies (RTA’s) are for junior athletes who have been developed by clubs. These squads both complement and enhance local Club provisions in order to help promising young athletes progress in the Talent Pathway.

These squads will be introduced to a performance culture and environment that supports their growth as athletes. The RTA Coaches provide a holistic programme of education and development.

There are currently seven Regional Talent Academies; Eastern, East Midlands, West Midlands, London, South East, Southern and South West. The RTA Squads are selected in Winter and Spring each year so keep an eye on our Talent Sprint Overview Page for Profiling Registration!
