The Scottish Schools Athletics Association

“The impact that the Scottish Schools’ Athletic Association has had on athletics in Scotland is considerable. Without it, we would never have seen athletes such as Liz McColgan, Yvonne Murray, Tom McKean, Eildh Child and a host of other stars achieving international success. It is crucial that this trend continues for future years and especially well beyond the Glasgow Commonwealth Games and schools in Scotland must provide a clear pathway into the sport supported by all partners within athletics in Scotland”
Nigel Holl, Chief Executive, scottishathletics
