Athlete Support Programme

The Athlete Support Programme (ASP) was established in October 2007 with the ultimate aim of its participants gaining future representation at Commonwealth Games, Olympic Games or Paralympic Games. It provides individualised support services for the region's performance level athletes and coaches, a number of whom have progressed to represent their country at Scottish and GB senior level. This includes the Commonwealth and Paralympic games. 

Services for successful applicants include:

  • Enhanced access to training facilities across the Borders
  • Medical and physiotherapy services
  • Strength/ conditioning programmes and coaching
  • Nutrition advice
  • Sports psychology support
  • Specialist coaching
  • Specialist equipment

Priority is given to sports/disciplines which are involved in the Commonwealth, Olympic or Paralympic Games, although other sports can be considered.
