With a membership across Scotland, Scottish ClubSport represents a membership of over 2,000 sports clubs with over 250,000 individual members collectively, across 60+ different sports. Covering the majority of Local Authority areas, the Scottish ClubSport membership is highly varied across Scotland. From the smallest with 15 member clubs to the largest with 270+ member clubs, the landscape of ClubSport networks and Sports Councils is unique to each of the local areas.

Scottish ClubSport aims to expand this membership into new Local Authority areas and will work with relevant partners to implement the ClubSport framework where relevant. Working in partnership with sportscotland, Sports Specific Governing Bodies, Local Authorities, Community Sports Hubs, Active Schools, Leisure Trusts and other national and local partners to evolve the existing membership further, whilst expanding into new areas.

The Scottish ClubSport network is designed to give sport at a local level the strongest voice possible when influencing local decision makers. Representing local sport clubs and volunteers, the unique connections with local councillors originally established by the Sports Council model will be built on going forward.
