Club Sport Framework

Together, with our partners, we aim to ensure that sport clubs are part of the fabric of their local communities, are focused on improving the quality and quantity of opportunities and play their part in developing and supporting a world class sporting system within Scotland. We also understand that sport clubs come in all shapes and sizes and this framework is intended to be flexible enough to be relevant to a 20 member gymnastics club through to a performance swimming club. We are committed to ethical and inclusive sport and have ensured these values are embedded throughout all aspects of the club sport framework.

This framework presents the collective challenges which identify some of the actions that all stakeholders should be focused on to effect change. In addressing these challenges we aim to create a culture of world class sport clubs in Scotland.

In addition, this framework also outlines sportscotland’s specific commitment to club sport through programmes of investment and partnership working, to ensure that clubs play their part in developing and supporting a world class sporting system within Scotland.
