Supporting local member clubs

ClubSport

ClubSport represents and supports local member clubs, organisations and individuals to help everyone to achieve their sporting goals. ClubSport networks within the Scottish Borders play an important role in local communities providing an independent voice for local sports clubs, regardless of size or sport. Collectively as the ClubSport clubs represent a significant proportion of the local community, this makes ClubSport organisations well positioned in the community for raising important local sporting issues with their local authority and locally elected members.

ClubSport is broken down into four areas:

– ClubSport Berwickshire
– ClubSport Ettrick & Lauderdale
– ClubSport Roxburgh
– ClubSport Tweeddale

Many clubs and/or individuals are already members of ClubSport. Those who are not can affiliate for just £20 per year for clubs or £10 per year for individuals, and start enjoying the many benefits that are on offer.

Being a member of ClubSport also allows member clubs to access the Coach Scholarship Scheme, which replaced the financial support that was available to coaches and umpires from ClubSport. The scheme was introduced to encourage new people to get involved in coaching and umpiring, and to provide financial support to motivate existing coaches to progress their careers.
