WATCH: ‘It feels good being back face-to-face coaching’

Friday 18th June 2021

May saw 57 licensed events happen

It’s great to be back – in training and competition.

We know that’s the feeling around Scotland and a number of our clubs and now we have irrefutable evidence from some of the youngest athletes in the country!

scottishathletics turned the spotlight on grassroots activity and asked three clubs – Aberdeen AAC, Kilmarnock Harriers and Corstorphine AAC – to create some video content about the return of the sport.

Young athletes answered questions on what they love about being at their club, their favourite events and their favourite Scottish athletes.

Digital comms officer Sue Gyford worked with Aberdeen, Kilmarnock and Corstorphine to pull together clips and create more content for our YouTube channel.

Thanks to Brian Pahlmann (Aberdeen); Ian Gebbie and Guy Hinks of (Kilmarnock) and Fran Snitjer and Harry Baird (Corstorphine) for help with the project, along with everyone else at the clubs who helped make it happen.
