To strengthen the infrastructure of sport in Tayside & Fife, to bring sustainable increases in participation and performance for our developing athletes.
2006, a series of open roadshows are being hosted by scottishathletics in late January and early February to help communicate the key messages and opportunities for those involved with the sport. Included is the development of coaches, athletes, administrators, facilities, local authority and school partnerships. All involved in athletics will be affected by this exciting development. The first of the evening roadshows was held in Perth at Bells Sports Centre on Wednesday 24 January. The evening was hosted by Performance Development Manager Nigel Hetherington and Education and Development Manager Ewen Cameron. The Perth roadshow, attended by athletics representatives from throughout the Tayside area, gave all attendees an early opportunity to review the Performance Strategy.
This was Nigel Hethrington's first official visit to Perth since his promotion to Performance Development Manager. At the start of the summer Nigel led a session at the George Duncan track to launch the Harriers at their new home with Internationalists Chris Baillie and Ian Mackie. Nigel's track session has been repaid in bucket loads with great performances by Strathtay Harriers athletes. This visit will, again, prove fruitful as the comprehensive strategy will form the framework for the sport in the years ahead.
