Getting your facilities fit for sport

Sportscotland have produced guidance which is primarily intended for owners and operators of sports facilities, however it can be adapted to support other planning based work being undertaken by sports, clubs and community organisations as they plan and prepare for when sport can resume. It is applicable to indoor and outdoor sport and can be either used in whole or in part depending on individual circumstances.

Getting your facilities fit for sport

 

Volunteer Week 1st – 7th June

Active Fife would like to take this opportunity, as part of Volunteers’ Week, to recognise all the amazing volunteers we work with and support. Whether you are a coach as part of our participation programmes, a walk leader, or are supported through your club by one of our Sports Development Officers we would like to say a massive THANK YOU!! Your energy and enthusiasm for sport and physical activity makes the environment we work in a great place to be.

Environmentally Friendly Clubhouses

  • Environmentally Friendly Clubhouses
  • With all sports clubs strapped for cash because of a large reduction in income, a smarter way of saving money is needed more than ever. A lot of discussions (and funding) are focusing around environmentally friendly clubhouses – helping your club have the smallest carbon footprint as possible, whilst at the same time saving much needed income.
  • Resource Efficient Scotland can offer you;
    • Free advice
    • Solve your energy problems
    • Help you gain funding if there advice is to make drastic changes
    • Allows your club to become cost effective and environmentally friendly
  • A case study from Inverness Tennis & Squash club can be found here. The club have managed to save thousands over the years, with all of works to make the club environmentally friendly not costing them a penny.
  • Definitely worth a look for those of you who have facilities.

WALKING EVENT

WALKING CHALLENGE 

Enjoy fresh air whenever possible

Although we can exercise at home, it is also important to get outside. We are allowed to take a walk, run or cycle alone or with members of your household once a day so make the most of it. We are lucky in Fife as few of us cannot walk to a green space from our front door (just remember social distancing rules).

If you would like a walking challenge why not try Active Fife’s annual walk every day in May? This was to celebrate the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo but it is still relevant as they have just been moved to 2021! This challenge can be done walking round your garden, house or local area using a pedometer, step counter or a measured distance. Mark off the footsteps as you go on the map provided.

Just print off the map and follow the instructions, happy Walking!
