Fun, health, developing skills, winning medals. Whatever the reasons for getting into sport, we want people to enjoy as many of its benefits as possible.
Sport For Life
Welcome to Sport For Life.
It's a new corporate strategy from sportscotland outlining the vision for an active Scotland where everyone benefits from sport.
Sport For Life sets out the assets available to Scottish sport and the approach we can take, working with partners, to help everyone benefit from sport - even people who don't take part in it.
To help the people of Scotland get the most from the sporting system.
- Making an impact together
- Making sport more accessible
- Progressing to your level
- Contributing to an active Scotland
- Celebrating the benefits of sport
From talented people to fantastic facilities and an exceptional natural environment, Scotland’s assets enable people to get active and involved in sport.
To help us deliver the many benefits of sport to everyone in Scotland, we’re guided by six key principles.
- World class
Our commitment to inclusion underpins everything we do.
Sport For Life was launched at a national networking event at Dunblane on 1 May, 2019. Here is how delegates and other partners reacted on Twitter.
