STS is pleased to announce that we are seeking applications to the Performance Programme and the process is now open. Selections would normally take place in the autumn, however because of the work going into facilitating the transition of the programme from sportscotland to STS this did not take place last year.  In order to minimise disruption to the athletes, coaches and the programme, we will not be going through the full selection process for the whole programme until the end of the season. However, due to these exceptional circumstances, we will be looking at a limited intake of new athletes onto the programme in the next couple of months. Applications to be made by 31st March.
