What is it?

#SportHour is a chance to join us on Twitter and discuss the incredible sporting landscape in Scotland, including ways to get involved in sport, explore new opportunities and hear from the sporting community on a wide range of sporting topics.

When is it?

We will be LIVE with the next #SportHour from 9-10pm on Monday 7 September 2020

What is the theme this month?

The September theme will focus on the message 'Playing our part' and the role of sport in supporting young people as leaders. Questions will be posted below and promoted on Twitter @sportscotland once they're confirmed.

This month we will only be publishing three questions instead of six to allow time for everyone to get their answers in as well as encourage more conversation.  

How does it work?

It's a Twitter chat we run from our sportscotland Twitter account, which you can follow using the hashtag #SportHour. The aim is to discuss different aspects of sport in Scotland and to get together as one sporting community.

Each month we have a theme which we tell you at the end of the previous #SportHour. We announce the questions and co-hosts in the week leading up to #SportHour.

We let you know the questions in advance so that you can plan your answers. On the day itself, we start about 8.45pm and the questions begin from 9pm.

The questions will be asked every 20 minutes starting at 9pm. Remember to include 'A1' in your answer for Q1 and so on for all three questions. Tag all your posts with #SportHour so that everyone can see your contribution.

An example is: 'A1 I recently joined the local hockey team, met some great friends, got fit & now I feel fantastic! #SportHour'


Q1. (9pm) - In your experience, what is it about sport that helps develop strong leadership skills?

Q2. (9.20pm) - Tell us about a young person in your community who stands out for their commitment to sport & physical activity?

Q3. (9.40pm) - What examples have you seen of sport being used to support young people to develop skills for work?


When is next month's #SportHour? 

Monday 5 October from 9-10pm

How do I submit question ideas for the next #SportHour? 

Tweet us @sportscotland and we will add them to the list!
