.: A Message from the Chair
to the sportMoray web site.
Sport Clubs are
important for our community, providing health benefits, achievement,
enjoyment or social integration. Our committee works tirelessly to
try and provide support to our local clubs, whether by small
financial support or a forum to find other means of support. We are
always looking for more volunteers or new ideas to help us achieve
We are a voluntary
body whose Executive Committee is made up of individuals from local
sports clubs and groups. We provide a co-ordinating role in
the development and promotion of sport in Moray. A huge number
of individual and team sports are represented.
What does it do?
Our main aim is to encourage interest and participation in
sport within Moray; to provide a forum for sports clubs and
other organisations to meet and to discuss and assist their
activities and development. We believe in 'Sport For All'.
What Service does sportMoray offer?
Comprehensive information and a specialist advice service is offered
to affiliated clubs and individuals without charge. Grant Aid
is distributed to local sports clubs and sports men and women to
assist in obtaining coaching qualifications, attending coaching
courses, travel expenses for quality events and purchase of certain
equipment. It is also sportMoray's policy to assist in developing
and promoting individual sports and activities locally.
Who does sportMoray work with?
sportMoray has close links with:- schools, local sports clubs,
community development, youth organisations, The Moray Council,
Scottish Association of Local Sports Councils and sportScotland.
sportMoray's unique position enables it to implement Regional and
National sports initiatives, whilst providing local people with a
central point for information on sporting matters. In recent
years, sportMoray has worked with groups not directly linked to
sport such as the Moray Action Group with its 'Keeping The Beat In
Grampian' Heart campaign to promote healthier lifestyles and the
Heart Of Moray Trust, who have similar aims and objectives.
Where do its funds come from?
sport Moray receives a grant each year from the Moray Council as
well as subscriptions from affiliated clubs and organisations.
Its main expenditure is the disbursement of grants to local sports
clubs and individuals. Funds are also allocated for its own
promotions:- e.g. Sportshall Athletics, Youth Tournaments,
Coach Education Courses and Scottish Association of Local Sports
Council competitions such as golf, bowls etc.

interested persons to help in all aspects of its varied work.
