For the other two LSAA championships affiliated schools can enter teams, or individuals. Entry forms are sent out early in the appropriate school term.

ESAA Championships - selection for these is primarily based on performances at the main London Schools championships. Athletes cannot enter themselves - selection is by a very experienced panel from the LSAA committee. Further information regarding selection for the London track and field team will be made available in the Spring of 2018.


We have now selected 70 athletes to represent London Schools at the English Schools track and field championships in Birmingham on 13th and 14th July 2018. CONGRATULATIONS to all these athletes.

If any athletes on the team list have not received their letters and forms in the post they may download the 5 documents here. Please read the letter very carefully, complete and return the three forms immediately to Dale Dapaah and confirm your acceptance before 25 June (as explained in the letter). 

Thank you.

The following athletes who have all represented London Schools competed in international championships during 2018. Congratulations to all of them on their performances which we are sure will inspire younger London athletes to emulate them in the future.

Seniors who competed for England at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia in April:

 PERRI SHAKES-DRAYTON competed in the 4 x 400m relay where the England women came 4th.

KATIE SNOWDEN reached the final of the 1500m where she ran 4:06.55 (her 2nd best time ever, in her first international final as a senior) to come 11th.

LORRAINE UGEN  came 4th in the Long Jump with a leap of 6.69m, after her indoor season was curtailed by injury. She was then, as reported in Athletics Weekly, "called up at short notice for the 4 x 100m relay where she held her nerve on the final leg to hold off a late charge from double Olympic champion, Elaine Thompson, to clinch a fantastic gold for the England women whose time of 42.46 set a new national record."

The first receipient of the award is Victor Dos Santos Soares. Here is Victor receiving his award from the Association's Chairman, Gwyn Williams, at the '2011 Sainsbury's UK School Games'.
