Snowsport Scotland have commissioned 4global to design a new facility strategy to further underpin their long-term development plans for snow sports in Scotland.
Snowsport Scotland’s new strategic plan has a clear focus on increasing Snowsport’s participation and membership of the NGB, as well as ensuring that more Scottish athletes were competing on the world stage. Almost 12 months on and Snowsport Scotland are well on track to achieving its 2022 targets, with membership and participation showing good growth and 23 Scottish athletes are currently represented on GB Training Squads.
Fundamental to growing participation and allowing athletes to reach their potential is access to quality facilities, and it is now the responsibility of 4global to deliver the new facilities strategy that will help strengthen the growth ambitions of the National Governing Body.
On confirming the new relationship with 4global, Trafford Wilson, Chief Executive of Snowsport Scotland said, “Snowsport Scotland looks forward to working with 4global to a develop better understanding of our sports facility needs and priorities for the future”.
4global’s Director of Sports Planning, Matthew Eames, explained his plans to start the project; “We are delighted to be working with Snowsport Scotland on this new exciting project. It is a great opportunity to utilise our National Governing Body facility strategy experience to help Snowsport Scotland shape the future of their sport.
“The strategy will involve analysing the supply and demand of Snowsport facilities in partnership with a series of stakeholders to identify best practice, key priorities and areas for future investment and we are excited to get to work and utilise our team’s expertise for the benefit of thousands of participants, at all levels of snow sports.”
