National Programme for Athletics in Scottish Schools
As the national governing body for athletics in Scotland, scottishathletics are fully aware of our responsibility to support the development of athletics across all primary and secondary schools in Scotland. We are entering a fantastic era of events in this country with the 2012 London Olympics closely followed by the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014, never again will we have such an opportunity to excite, motivate and inspire children to participate in the sport.
SAL's aim is that every child in Scotland will have the opportunity to participate in the sport of athletics through schools and clubs, in an environment that encourages effort and learning, improving performance and developing competitiveness and is supported by well qualified coaches, enthusiastic volunteers and in an inclusive and developmental-focused environment.
scottishathletics are working closely with the Scottish Schools' Athletic Association and UK Athletics to create an exciting developmental programme for athletics that can be easily accessed by schools. They are working in partnership to develop a framework for athletics in Scotland that is based on the principles of long-term athlete development and links closely to the Curriculum for Excellence that will ensure that activities, skills and competition formats are all relevant to the age and stage of the participant.
