SALSC (Scottish Association of Local Sports Councils) is the umbrella organisation for Local Sports Councils (LSCs) and ClubSport organisations across Scotland.
LSCs play an important role in their communities, providing an independent voice for local sports clubs, regardless of size or sport. This makes LSCs well positioned for raising important local sporting issues with their local authority and locally elected members. It is for this reason that LSCs respond to local needs, with the national umbrella organisation providing support to ensure they are well equipped to meet those needs.
While this element of work is a crucial aspect of what LSCs do – it is equally important that LSCs are seen to be proactive – supporting member clubs, being visible in the local community and playing their part in encouraging people to get physically active. This can include distributing funds to clubs, holding events, facilitating workshops, acting as the quality checking agency for local sports clubs and developing community links to create sporting pathways.
Affiliating to an LSC is an excellent way for Sports Clubs to become involved with community sport, LSCs are a useful resource of knowledge, experience and partner opportunities.
SALSC will be in attendance in the Boxing Hall at the Elite National Championships on Saturday 16th March. They will be open to enquiries and questions from 0930-1230.
There are plans to have members in attendance at regionally at District Championships in the new season.
