OUR AIMS

The key focus of Scottish Pentathlon will be on building a strong Development Pathway that is inclusive and is “a sport for all”. Our development plans support athletes from across the grass roots swim/run route and from Pony Club Tetrathlon who aim to develop their interest and skills to achieve their own goals and reach their potential performance level.

To help harness and produce top quality pentathletes to perform at a high level and enable them to reach their full potential, the pathway will be modelled upon similar examples in top performing pentathlon countries and be adapted to suit the needs of Scottish Pentathlon.

Our key outcome will be to close the gap between grass roots participation and elite athletes and improving the ‘middle part’ of the pathway through development and increased competition.

We will do this by encouraging athletes that compete at Biathlon, Triathlon and Pony Club Tetrathlon to progress into Pentathlon and participate in Scottish Pentathlon events and club competitions.
