From grassroots to professional

Sports development

We are committed to working with all sports and clubs in the Scottish Borders to help provide a high quality network of clubs, coaches, pathways, volunteers, facilities and sporting opportunities.

We also have target sports that we work with national governing bodies to fund an officer/ programme or support services to develop the sporting infrastructure in the Scottish Borders.

We currently have seven target sports: athletics, cycling, hockey, football, rugby, tennis and swimming. Disability sport has been identified as an area of priority due to its inclusion across all the sports.

However, our commitment extends beyond the target sports listed above – we remain dedicated to increasing the number of participants in sport in the Borders and inspiring everyone to improve their lives through physical activity and sport.
