Talented Athlete Scheme Print

Our aim is to provide assistance and free access to Live Active Leisure venues to enable sports athletes to be developed to their full potential and achieve world class performance levels.

  • Scottish Institute of Sport

  • Scottish or Great Britain Squad Member

* Eligible athletes must participate in a sport that has a governing body recognised by Sportscotland.  Evidence of this should be included within the application process through Sportscotland's verification form.


  1. The athlete should complete the application form and get it endorsed by the relevant NGB or Area Institute / Squad Coach.
  2. The application should then be submitted to Live Active Leisure, where it will be assessed.
  3. The athlete will be sent notification of the outcome of their application, including any particular conditions which may affect their access to our leisure venues.
