Performance PRogramme Athletes
In November 2017 the athletes selected to be on the 2018 Performance Programme of Scottish Target Shooting, managed by sportscotland's Institute of Sport, were released.
The 2018 Performance Programme is broken down into 2 tiers - High Performance and Academy - and is reviewed on an annual basis in the lead up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia. Between the two programmes, as well as getting access to high quality coaching, employed and/or contracted to work with the athletes on the programmes, athletes also have the opportunity to access a number of different support services including strength and conditioning support, physic support, nutritional advice, sports psychology to name a few as well as some financial support for attending agreed events to help with an athlete's development. Access to these services depend on the programme the athlete has been selected for.
Scottish Target Shooting would like to congratulate all athletes selected for the High Performance and Academy programmes for the 2017/18 performance year. Selection alone is an impressive achievement.
We have asked our athletes a few questions about who they are and how they got into shooting so you can get to know them a little better. Select an athlete below to find out a little more about them.
