The English Schools’ Athletic Association relies on sponsorship to enable them to host their events. These events are often the cornerstone of an athlete’s career, and an amazing experience for all who are selected to represent their county. Athletes such as Daley Thompson, Greg Rutherford and Jessica Ennis-Hill have all cited how pivotal ESAA was for them in their journey to success.
Unfortunately ESAA have no sponsorship for 2022, and are asking for donations to allow them to put on the Track & Field Championships in 2022.

The link to the ESAA site itself is ESAA – English Schools’ Athletic Association where they have the following statement:-
As many of you are aware, the ESAA is currently without any sponsors – everyone is suffering from the effects of Covid19 and finding financial help has become more and more difficult as businesses struggle to survive.
It has become apparent from the outpouring of support across Social Media, that ex athletes, parents and coaches want to support the continuation of our association. With this in mind, many parents have suggested setting up a just giving page to donate. There has been a small working party of parents and ESAA officers to set this up and donations are coming in thick and fast.
We would be grateful if you could donate, share and support this – our main aim is to assist with the financial cost of ESAA Track & Field Championships 2022.
