Established in 2011, the Club Together partnership project is a key part of the scottishathletics National Club Development Programme.
It is a simple scheme which involves the club, scottishathletics and local partners jointly investing to fund and employ, normally a part-time Club Together project post, to help the club develop and improve. Ultimately the aim is to increase participation and improve athlete performances within clubs, however, the aims of each post are determined by the needs of each individual club.
On average, growth in membership at participating clubs involved in the project is 65%, over their time in the project, and membership retention is 83% over the past 12 months. There are currently 26 clubs involved in the project with a total of 32 Club Together posts.
