Angling Talent Plan 2011-2017

The Angling Trust England Talent Development Plan 2011–17 sets out how angling will develop and accelerate talent resulting in more talented performers moving on to elite programmes and success.

The long-term aim is to raise the standard of sporting achievement in angling and ultimately improve international performance. This will be achieved by providing a seamless pathway from grass roots participation to elite level and prioritise the following areas:

  • selection of talented anglers at key stages of their development
  • pathway to develop talented anglers which includes competitive opportunities and supported by a coach development structure

England is well represented in the Home, European and World Championships for junior, senior, intermediate, female, veteran and disabled teams in all three disciplines. However in 2009 the Angling Trust identified that there was no structured, complete pathway in place to develop and prepare young talented anglers to compete at the highest level.

The Angling Trust conducted research and consulted with performance representatives, national youth squads and their coaches from each angling discipline in an attempt to gather views on how the existing system can be improved.

The findings were crucial to the development of an Angling Talent Plan in 2011 which sets out how an England Talent Plan will be delivered. The Plan focuses on developing and accelerating talent, resulting in more talented performers moving on to elite programmes and success at national and international level. Over the next four years the aim is to deliver the Angling Talent Plan 2011-17 that will include a talent pathway structure in nine regions.

This Plan provides an integrated and strategic approach to the holistic development of talented young anglers.

The England Talent Pathway provides opportunities for talented young anglers between the ages of 13 and 18. The model consists of the following three stages:

Stage 1 Selection into the England Talent Pathway (Screening events)
Stage 2 Selection into Super-regional Squads (Training Phase)
Stage 3 Selection into England Youth squads
