Clackmannanshire Sports Council

Connecting, developing and championing sport and physical activity in Clackmannanshire


The Sports Council offers a number of ways for Clubs and individuals to develop: at our meetings, we bring subject matter experts, in fields such as finance, grants and governance to help you develop your Club; we run courses, such as First Aid and Child Protection; and our grant aid scheme allows you to get assistance for what your Club needs to help you develop.


The grant aid scheme aims to assist both member clubs and individuals to start up new sports clubs, improve and develop existing sports clubs, encourage participation in sport, support events through grant aid, raise the standard of coaching, and reward talent and achievement.  Grants may be given in the following categories:

    • Start-up Grant – Start up new sports clubs
    • Development Grant  – Improve and develop existing sports clubs
    • Open-door Grant – Encourage participation in sport
    • Event Support Grant – Support events through grant aid
    • Coach Education Grant – Promote the development of coaching within the club
    • Individual Grant – We also offer grants to individuals to help them compete at the highest levels
