Clackmannanshire Sports Council

Connecting, developing and championing sport and physical activity in Clackmannanshire

Clackmannanshire Sports Council has a Board of dedicated volunteers from the local sporting community who work hard to connect, develop and champion our affiliated clubs and individuals, promoting active and healthy lifestyles through the many sporting opportunities available in the Wee County.

We have a significant range of sports clubs varying in size, numbers, abilities and interests, with over 30 sports and physical activities represented.  Our meetings connect our clubs together so they can share in best practice and we regularly bring in subject matter experts in fields as varied as volunteer support, funding workshops and first aid courses, to help them develop.  Clackmannanshire Sports Council works hard to champion our member clubs, individuals and organisations at both a local and national level. 

We fortunate to have excellent links with our Council – not only our Council’s Sport & Leisure Service, but our Provost is our Honorary President and we are regularly supported by two local councillors.  We work closely with a wide range of partner organisations and Scottish Governing Bodies, including Scottish ClubSport, the national body for Sports Councils and ClubSport networks.

With the Council’s investment in a new Wellbeing Hub & Lochies School development in Alloa West, it’s an exciting time to be involved in sport in Clackmannanshire.  You can find out more here.
