A Startegic Overview

SportTayside, formally known as Tayside Sports Development Group (TSDG) was established in 1994 to accelerate the development of sport throughout Tayside. The partnership consists of sportscotland, Angus council, Dundee City Council, Perth and Kinross Council, their respective local sports councils and Perth and Kinross Leisure.

Building on the successess and lessons learnt from the past, the partnership conducted a review that resulted in a new strategic direction and name change with SportTayside being launched in January 2003.

Our aim is to enhance the infrastructure of sport at local and regional level by integrating resources, raising the profile of sports development, sharing best practice and utilising the network of expertise available. This will ultimately contribute to delivering against key targets outlined in the national strategy for sport, Sport 21: 2003-2007.

Focusing on nine priority sports, SportTayside recognises the continued need to develop meaningful partnerships between national governing bodies of sport, sportscotland, local authorities, the Tayside and Fife Area Institute of Sport and other service providers such as colleges and Universities.
