Francis Smith is leading our #ontherighttrack development programme over the next few months
scottishathletics are pleased to launch a new club development programme – entitled #ontherighttrack.
The programme will be led by National Club Manager Francis Smith and we would like to invite all interested clubs to attend a virtual information evening.
#ontherighttrack will focus on Changing Lives Through Sport and we are keen for individuals to sign-up and then ultimately give feedback to their club. Participating clubs will be supported to establish, develop and integrate a Changing Lives mindset and approach.
Our online information evening (via Zoom) is taking place on Wednesday 7 July from 7pm. Email invitations have been sent to club secretaries.
What is Changing Lives?
A Changing Lives approach to sport is all about intention.
We know that the benefits for participating in athletics and running (and all sports and physical activity) are significant; namely, improved physical and mental health, and enhanced social connections.
For some people, these benefits are the reason for participation; for others, they are an additional bonus of doing a sport that they love.
A Changing Lives approach and mindset moves the focus away from the sport and onto the participant. With this mindset, clubs and coaches will intentionally use running/athletics to improve the lives of people and/or their community.
