Parallel Success in Scotland

The Role of 'Disability Athletics' in Scotland

Scottishathletics and Scottish Disability Sport work in partnership to provide training and competition opportunities for athletes with a Physical, Sensory or Learning Disability, to take part in athletics to enable them to reach their full potential. They do this by providing a pathway for athletes from beginner right through to high performance, providing Local and National competitions and fun festivals for all. By linking athletes with clubs and coaches this provides better training opportunites for all concerned. Scottish Disability Sport delivers disability awareness training and inclusion training, whilst Scottishathletics deliver "How to Coach Athletes with a Disability" and "Coaching Wheelchair Racer' courses to coaches, school teachers, and active school co-ordinators.
