This is a one-day event focussing on how Scotland’s community sports providers can benefit themselves and their communities by developing and delivering innovative and enterprising programmes.

This event focuses on how to deliver great, sustainable community sport without compromising your sporting and community objectives. It will highlight best practice and provide thoughts, tools and to-dos on how you too can become a sustainable community sports provider.

Delegates will come from community sports clubs, Community Sport Hubs, governing bodies of sport, local authorities, community sports trusts at our professional and semi-pro clubs, informal sports providers, community sports enterprises, sports governing bodies, community groups and other community sports providers.

Launched in 2011, Tryst Community Sports Hub is a unique partnership between Larbert High School, Stenhousemuir Football Club and Falkirk Community Trust. Its aim is to engage with the community and impact positively on the health and well-being of people.

This CSH is based at Larbert High School, and supports the development of 16 junior clubs that use the school for their facilities. A number of these clubs are new, offering sports that were not previously available. The Community Sports Junior Program offers a diverse range of sports from Waterpolo and Basketball for all children to become involved and the Hub also offers a vibrant adult program

To ensure that Tryst CSH grows in a sustainable way it has a management group that brings together the professional partners and a steering group that brings the clubs together. This also helps to develop their understanding of the sporting needs of the local communities and improve how they work together.

Billy Brotton is Community Sports Hub Officer at Tryst Community Sports Hub and Head of Sport at Larbert High School. His presentation will cover how this great partnership between school, community clubs and professional football club’s community arm is so successful.
