School and Club Sport

Overview

School and Club Sport in East Renfrewshire

The Sports Development team provides high quality opportunities for all ages, promoting sport as an activity that enables the development of people first and athletes second, whilst recognising the personal and social benefits of a healthy lifestyle. It is the teams desire to increase sporting opportunities for all members of the East Renfrewshire community and provide links from school and other forms of participation to local sports clubs and performance pathways. Likewise, it is a continued ambition to increase the sporting capacity of East Renfrewshire by organising and supporting sporting and physical activity opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.

By collaborating and working in partnership with East Renfrewshire Council, schools, local sports clubs, Community Sport Hubs, sportscotland, National Governing Bodies of Sport, regional sports partnerships and other organisations we are able to strengthen the promotion, participation and network of provision whilst ensuring enjoyable, safe, high quality environments exist.

The Sports Development team can provide a range of advice, support and information from where to start in sport within schools and the community, how to set up a new sports club, developing your own sports group, quality assurance of your organisation and information about supporting talented athletes and aspiring coaches.
