The 9th GBA Awards Winner Shireen Higgins

Shireen Higgins

Windsor Slough Eton & Hounslow Athletic Club

During the pandemic Shireen gave over 700 hours to keep over forty 11 to 18-year-old athletes active and positive. As a lead coach at Windsor Slough Eton & Hounslow Athletic Club, she persuaded parents to help children complete individual training in local parks.

Shireen collated performance logs, provided feedback, and encouraged new goals. Through crowd funding, she raised thousands to buy portable floodlights for training.

Shireen created covid-compliant group training with staggered start times, colour coded tents and floor markers (extending her involvement by 2 hours per session).

After a successful application to England Athletics, she organised a covid-compliant middle-distance event – the first ever race for some athletes.
