The National Club Conference was staged for the fourth successive year in Glasgow on 4 November 2017 – prior to the FPSG Annual Awards Dinner.
We were delighted to welcome around 80 delegates from 25 different athletics clubs in Scotland for key sessions which are geared to grow knowledge, share practice and leave club leaders inspired and enthused.
Sammi Kinghorn, named FPSG Para Athlete of the Year later that evening, was Guest Speaker at the Club Conference.
There were also presentations from GB Sport’s Mike Lynch; Angus MacDonald of scottishathletics with a Welfare Workshop and visiting speaker, Svend Elkjaer, on ‘More than an athletics club’.
It was good to once again welcome presentations from clubs themselves, under the general heading of sharing good practice, and indeed these sessions are among the most popular for our club leaders – as ideas are swapped and clubs learn from the experiences of others.
We’d very much like to thank the club leaders who shared their experience from the following clubs: Springburn Harriers, Garscube Harriers, Kilmarnock Harriers, Aberdeen AAC, Harmeny AC and Team East Lothian.
