Athletes in the current MattyB DEPT. squad
The MattyB DEPT. Elite Ambassador and Senior Squad is for athletes aged 15 years and up.
This squad trains between 2-5 times per week. This squad also trains at times with the MBD Elite squad so there is a huge expectation placed on this squad to train as a professional athlete. Athletes compete in gifts and other major events nationally and possibly internationally.
This is an extremely popular squad and although there are no specific performance criteria for this squad there are limitations on numbers and acceptance in this squad based totally on the subjective decision of MBD. All athletes must complete a trial period first.
ELITE AMBASSADORS / ELITE ATHLETES
There is a very high expectation of professionalism placed on these athletes with many striving for national selection at either senior or junior level. The elite squad is open to anyone aged 15 years or above who have reached the elite standards set out below. Athletes who have not reached the standards may still be considered for selection in the elite squad if MBD believes they have outstanding potential or demonstrate abilities that compliment the current squad.
Selection is dependent on positions being available in the squad but nominations will always be considered. Athletes may be placed into the senior or development level if MBD feels this is a better fit. All athletes must complete a trial period first.
These athletes represent some of the top track and field athletes in the country in both elite and professional running.
Athletes in this squad have from 3 to 9 sessions per week including track, gym and recovery sessions.
Places in this group are strictly limited and performance standards apply.
