Club together

The Club Together partnership project is a key part of the scottishathletics National Club Development Programme.

It is a simple scheme which involves scottishathletics and local partners jointly investing to fund a part-time Club Together Officer post, to help the club develop and improve – as well as investing in resources and scottishathletics staff support. While every club has slightly different priorities, ultimately the aim is to increase participation and improve athlete performances within clubs.

Any clubs who wish to be considered for joining the project should contact Head of Development Colin Hutchison.

How Club Together works

Club Together is a partnership. Partnerships mean all partners gain from the efforts and the relationship. The key partners in the project are:

  • The athletics club
  • scottishathletics
  • The local authority/leisure trust (representing education/schools, sports development / community development)

Criteria to be achieved prior to consideration for investment:

  • Attainment of scottishathletics Club Accreditation Programme Foundation Award
  • Active member (where they exist) of their Local Athletics Partnership
  • A clear club structure in place and communicated to all club members
  • The club demonstrates a willingness to develop and a readiness to embrace change
  • The club has a relationship with their local authority (LA)
