The theme for the event this year will be The Power of People.

At any one time, it takes over 900 committed volunteers to fill the key committee positions across the 150 clubs affiliated to scottishathletics.

By the time you consider the number of coaches, volunteers and Officials it takes to offer the high-quality participation, training and competition opportunities found across Scotland, the need for skilled, motivated people is clear and massive.

scottishathletics is committed to supporting and developing the vast sporting workforce through programmes such as Club Together, Role Specific Training, the ATS Young People’s Forum, #OnTheRightTrack, and the Club Leaders Academy.

The resources, expertise, and collaboration delivered throughout these programmes, support our aspiring and current club leaders to have a positive impact on their clubs and communities, ultimately ensuring athletics and running clubs deliver sector-leading opportunities.

However, it is our people that are the true champions, and without their dedication and selfless commitment, our sport and global success would disappear.

Booking will open soon.
