This strategy sets out the long-term aims and objectives for sport until 2020 and plans for its delivery and evaluation. It has been produced following a scheduled review of Sport 21: 2003-2007.

However, this is the first time Scottish Ministers have led the review and is a demonstration of their commitment to sport and its development. At a meeting of the Sport 21 National Implementation Forum in October 2005 the Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport was clear that Sport 21 must move into a new phase to secure delivery, ensure that all the key partners understood their responsibilities and required actions, and put in place a simple and straightforward system of evaluating impact.

An outline of the strategy, including the priorities for change, was endorsed by Scottish Ministers in August 2006 and subsequently discussed at the First Minister’s Sport Summit held the following month.

The First Minister’s Sport Summit explored how sport in Scotland could be strengthened to ensure that the opportunities offered by a London Olympics and Paralympics, and hopefully a Glasgow Commonwealth Games, could be extended across the population.

The First Minister has made clear his commitment to the enhancement of sport in Scotland from grassroots level through
to the performance of our elite sportsmen and women.
