Support & resources

Around 500 clubs provide opportunities for thousands of people in Edinburgh to take part in sport as performers, coaches, officials and administrators. Clubs play a key role in encouraging sports participation and developing young performers through age-group structures and on up to international standard. With these roles come responsibilities and the need to ensure that clubs are providing quality, safe and enjoyable experiences for their members.


Our Support & Resources aim to:

  • Provide a generic resource for sports clubs that wish to improve. It is of particular relevance to clubs whose National Governing Bodies (NGB) does not have a sport-specific club development manual.
  • Highlight the main issues that clubs need to be aware of when working with children and young people and support that work by providing resources to assist them.
  • Encourage good practice and assistance in the development of coaches and other volunteers.
