Team Glasgow is a composite athletics team created by Glasgow Athletics Association to provide athletes in the Under 17 and Under 20 ranks with the opportunity to gain a greater level of competition in a wide variety of events.
The team is comprised of athletes from four clubs:
- Giffnock North AC
- Kilbarchan AAC
- Shettleston Harriers
- Victoria Park City of Glasgow AC
The team, led by John Melvin, compete in the Upper Youth Development League with the aim of making the UK Final. The team travels to various locations where they compete as one of six teams in a league. Over the course of three matches, the teams amass points with the top two teams from each division reaching the UK final taking place at the end of the outdoor season.
Athletes in the team are supported by team managers, accredited officials and a team masseur to gain the full experience of travelling with an athletics team. By giving athletes this opportunity, it not only widens their experiences as a young athlete but also prepares them for future high level competitions.
Team Glasgow have been extremely successful over the last few years, reaching the UK final for the last three years and placing as high as fourth. The team has supported the development of athletes who have attained Scottish junior, Scottish senior, GB junior and GB senior vests.
