New Hubs

Formal agreements are now in place with Hubs in Aberdeen (Scottish Saltires) and in Stirling to deliver an agreed programme of events through the year, while discussions are at an advanced stage with two further Hubs to come on track in the next few months.

It is hoped that the activities within each Hubs will serve to help grow and support the sport and lead to further expansion of the network of Hubs in the future.

The programme in Aberdeen for 2017 – 2018 features:

• Weekly swimming sessions (Tuesdays) coached by trained coaches
• Weekly laser and Fencing sessions (Fridays) utilising qualified fencing coaches
• Runs regular Biathlon competitions, for beginners and those familiar with the disciplines
• Stages a number of Laser / Run events
• Hosting a Biathlon qualifier (for Scottish Championships ) in November 2017
• Identification, for possible purchase, of new equipment for the Hub and possible loan to athletes for training and competition purposes
