London Coaching Foundation




The London Coaching Foundation (LCF) is a non-profit making Charitable Trust (No.1001103) set up in 1990 with the aim of encouraging young people from London to participate in track and field athletics regardless of their ability, gender, race or social



Athletics has a great deal to offer everyone, regardless of their individual sporting ability. Our "Have A Go" programme takes place in locations around London to allow young people to try track and field events under the guidance of qualified performance coaches and current and former British Olympians.


Our coaching team includes Frank Attoh, Lloyd Cowan, John Herbert, Richard Gyesie, Yamila Aldama, Fatima Whitbread, Jade Johnson, Trecia Smith, Michael McFarlane,

Tony Jarrett, Julian Golding and Chris Zah. All our senior coaches have a track record

of developing international quality athletes.




With our support and guidance, we want young people to consider and enjoy a career in sport, media or the arts. This is why the LCF has forged links with Schools, Colleges and Universities that value sport and education. We believe there is a pool of untapped talent that needs to be nurtured and supported by qualified mentors and coaches with proven track records in developing young people.




The LCF is proud of London and the achievements of the Olympic and Paralympic Games iin 2012. We are now working to deliver a true and lasting legacy with our partners and major sponsors by rolling out new programmes and initiatives across our diverse communities and London Boroughs.


We aim to support those with raw potential, working with them to change their habits, their concentration, focus, confidence and techniques.


It is this commitment to excellence and developing excellent young people that is the driving force behind the work of the LCF.
