Aspiring Athletes

 

 

 

We’re Here to Help and Support Local Athletes!

Our RAASP Card is here to help aspiring Renfrewshire athletes with access to Renfrewshire Leisure training facilities and a possible grant through our Scholarship Programme.

Renfrewshire Aspiring Athlete Scholarship Programme (RAASP) is a partnership with Renfrewshire Leisure, Renfrewshire Council, Renfrewshire Community Sport Hubs, Paisley Physiotherapy Centre and Eve Spa which aims to support aspiring athletes competing at an elite level and residing in Renfrewshire. This program helps athletes achieve their individual aims and aspirations with free access to Renfrewshire Leisure facilities.

Potential scholarship funding will be dependent on Aspiring Athletes who are in possession of a current RAASP Card, participates in club sport, reside within Renfrewshire and are eligible to apply.  (see attached application form and set criteria)  Scholarship Funding Application

The award level and any support available are at the discretion of the Renfrewshire Sports Strategy Panel. Applicants must provide written support from their National Governing Body representative to confirm their training status and level of competition.

The RAASP card allows athletes free access to fitness gyms, swimming pools, athletics track, fitness classes and can only be used out with planned club training times. Access to other area facilities such as sports pitches and indoor courts may be available on the day of the athletes visit but cannot be booked in advance and is subject to availability and at the discretion of the duty manager.

It will be a condition of any award that acknowledgement of support from all partners is given in any press release, promotion or publicity material and on club website or social media. Athletes may also be required to provide updates of performance throughout the year in order for Renfrewshire Leisure to promote athlete achievements.
