Healthy Competitive Environment


The Athletics Academy has grown from strength to strength since it was founded in 2010. There are currently 25 student athletes in the academy, which prides itself on developing competitors from beginners up to national and international standards across all track and field events under the tutelage of Head of Academy, Andrea Garcia-Lock and Assistant Athletics Coach Joy Bray.


For prospective students, having a high level of commitment to the Athletics Academy is expected from all the coaches.


All student athletes are brought together in a team environment and students bond and reach higher levels through in-house competition and having access to high-level coaching across all track and field disciplines.


The Athletics Academy allows students to reach optimum performance levels through a full-time training programme that combines track sessions with fully personalised training programmes that are specifically tailored for each student.


Academy students are rostered to supervised gym sessions so they can complete a fully personalised strength and conditioning programme. There is also on-site access to sports injury staff which helps with the avoidance of injuries.


Student athletes get regular workshops on psychology, nutrition, goal-setting and dealing with performance anxiety. They also regularly get master workshop coaching for specific events and we also provide access to club training nights hosted at SGS twice a week.





We have Grade A track and field facilities at our WISE campus, where we proudly hosted the Kenyan Olympic and Paralympic training camps before the London Olympics and Paralympics in 2012.


We boast an eight-lane floodlit competition track that is equipped with double long jump pits.


Additionally, we have a state-of-the-art gym, weights room and human performance laboratory in addition to an indoor 3G AstroTurf training facility and a sports halls for classes. We also have a hammer, discus and shot putt cage, a double-ended javelin and a pole vault area.


The Athletics Academy sports include the long jump, triple jump, high jump, pole vault, hammer , javelin, shot-putt, discus, hurdling, sprints from 60m to 400 m, middle distance running from 800 to 1500 and long distance races including 3000, 5000 and 10,000m in addition to cross country competition during the winter season.
