Contact Scouting Team

 To prospective Student-Athletes, Coaches and Families,

This scouting programme is here to advise track and field athletes on applications to the King’s Performance programme, and on joining the Athletics Club. Through the Scouting Programme at the club, we help and guide you through the Performance Programme application process, and offer a full overview of the Athletics Club. We help incoming track and field athletes in their performance scholarship application process by:

  • Setting up meetings for initial assessment and alignment of goals
  • Guidance on the King’s performance programme and your place in the club
  • Preparation workshops for Performance Programme applications

King’s has an aspirational, well-funded and well-equipped Athletics club that is gradually dominating the London University athletics scene. At the club, our goal is to harmonise the power of a demanding degree at one of the world’s top 20 universities with high level athletics. This page is here if you are interested to find out more about the programme, and perhaps to find out where you might fit in at King’s. I can personally promise you that if you are hard-working, committed and driven to succeed, there is a place for you.

King’s has four star athletes currently at the club: Dina Asher-Smith, Shona Williams, Laviai Nielsen, and Maximilian Nichols. However, only by looking to the future can we achieve sustained success. With the exclusive access King’s Athletics has to track facilities and world-class gym suites, as well as being a top academic institute, we offer a unique experience in central London.

Thank you for considering King’s College London Athletics Club. The club hopes that, regardless of your final decision, you enjoy your experience with the club and will always feel free to contact us.


Yours truly,

Max Arzt-Jones
