The Scottish Disability Sport Athlete Academy is a support structure for talented athletes who have the potential to progress onto World Class Performance Programmes (WCPP).  The academy offers financial support at an integral stage in an athlete's development and underpins the sportscotland institute of sport (SIS).

SDS has a strong working relationship with Scottish Governing Bodies of Sport (SGBs) and we invite nominations from them for our Academy.  Athletes are selected based on strict criteria relating to performance levels, attitude to training and commitment to their sport.  Each athlete must be eligible to compete for Scotland and have aspirations of reaching podium level for Great Britain. 

Gary Fraser, Scottish Disability Sport, commented: “It is an exciting time to be involved in performance disability sport, and the standard of athlete that has been selected for the SDS Athlete Academy indicates a promising future for Scottish para athletes competing on the international stage.  This year’s Academy is the largest to date and this growth can be attributed to the increased focus from SDS, and other SGB partners, in developing performance pathways.  The SDS Academy, as a support mechanism, comes in at the right time in an athlete’s journey, and provides a much needed sustenance en route to WCPP level.”
