Tullibody/Lornshill Community Sport Hub Meeting
Community Sport Hub Meeting – Discuss Sports Development 🎾
Wednesday 29th May 7.30pm @ Tullibody Civic Centre
A Community Sport Hub brings together sport clubs, physical activity providers, community groups and key local partners who want to develop and grow the sport, physical activity and active recreation offering in the community. They focus on sustainable, community-led approaches that get communities working together to develop welcoming, safe and fun environments for sport & physical activity.
Community sport hubs are National Lottery funded and are one of sportscotland’s key programmes which contribute to Legacy and supports local sport clubs to play their part in a world class sporting system.
A Community Sport Hub exists to serve its own local community, so there is no standard formula dictating how each hub should operate. There are common goals: growth in participation, engagement with the local community & bringing people together. Some hubs have a physical whilst others exist virtually, stretching out over huge rural areas
The ‘hub’ is essentially a collective of progressive sport clubs and partners working together in a local community.
Each community sport hub is unique, and develops its own vision and values in a clear and simple plan. The common thread that binds all hubs together is that they work to be sustainable, and they follow these five principles:
- Growth in participation
- Understanding community need
- Supporting community leadership
- Offering a range of sports
- Ensuring all the right people are working together
Each hub will vary in its model and structure but all should involve local groups and organisations. The community sport hub officer plays a fundamental role in bringing key people together. Working in partnership helps to develop community sport hubs and clubs in a sustainable way.
It would be great if we could have as many community members, clubs, groups and partners come along to help discuss how to develop sport, physical activity and active recreation within the community.
