We're staying at home you should too

Sporting system pitches in

People from across the sporting community help out however they can

During what is a difficult and challenging time for us all, we have seen the sporting system in Scotland come together with messages of support and innovative ways for us all to stay mentally and physically active.

While we must all continue to follow the latest government advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and stay at home to help save lives and protect our NHS, there have been plenty of examples of the sporting system pitching in to help local communities however they can.

The creative exercise ideas keep coming and this week we even had a virtual awards ceremony as Live Active Leisure hosted the 2019 Perth and Kinross Sports Awards online. 

Here are some of the higlights:

Stewart Harris, sportscotland chief executive, said: “I hope that everyone involved in our partner organisations are keeping well at this challenging time. Please be reassured that we are doing everything we can to support the sector throughout the duration of this pandemic, and when the time is right, we will work together to regenerate sport in Scotland.

“While we are all following the government guidance to stay home, we also want to encourage people to stay as active as possible.

"We want the people of Scotland to continue to enjoy the physical and mental benefits of physical activity and it is incredible to see the creativity that is evident as people come up with new ways to exercise at home.

“To stay connected please join our twitter chat #Sporthour on Monday 6 April at 9pm where we’ll open up the conversation around physical activity and mental health.”
