Welcome to the SportTayside & Fife Partnership website.

We are often asked what SportTayside & Fife is, and what it actually delivers - this brief introduction, our strategic plan and the website will hopefully help to answer that for you!

We are one of two regional organisations established by sportscotland on a pilot basis to work on behalf of eight priority sports and their clubs with Angus, City of Dundee, Fife and Perth & Kinross Councils. The other is SportCentral which is based in Falkirk.

Our key role is to help partners to work together locally to improve opportunities for people to take part and progress in sport. We do this by building and strengthening the infrastructure of sport, and our two key aims are to:
• Increase participation in sport leading to lifelong involvement
• Improve performances of our developing athletes to achieve national standards or Area Institute of Sport level
We have Regional Development Managers for each sport, and the programmes are delivered through a planning framework which is designed and monitored in partnership with the local authorities and governing bodies. We develop these plans based on the needs of Athletes & Players, Clubs, Facilities and Coaches, Officials & Volunteers.

Our eight sports are:

athletics

gymnastics

 

With the support of our key game sponsors at spinbonus.com We work in two other important areas – to educate and develop coaches and to help clubs develop their operation and services to their members. Our Coaching/Club Development Manager has developed programmes that complement and augment the programmes organised by our local authority partners to support these two vital providers of grassroots and competitive sport.

SportTayside & Fife has also established Academy programmes that cater for those players and athletes aspiring to perform at district and national age group levels. As well as the important sports specific programmes for age-group squads we have implemented a generic Strength and Conditioning Academy programme in partnership with the Scottish and Tayside and Fife Institutes of Sport

In addition, the Partnership plays a key role in supporting the development of regional and local facilities through its Facilities Group, and we have established a Tertiary Education Forum to bring the universities and colleges closer to the sports development programmes and policies that operate throughout the region.
