Edinburgh Athletes Support Scheme

The Edinburgh Talented Athlete Support Scheme (E TASS), is a City of Edinburgh Council and Edinburgh Leisure funded programme that represents a strong and unique partnership between talented athletes, National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGB’s) and the Scottish Institute of Sport Network (SISN). E TASS aims to provide free access to Edinburgh Leisure’s gym, swimming pool and track venues, to support talented athletes to achieve more, develop to their full potential and accomplish world class performance levels.

To qualify for the E TASS athletes must be resident in Edinburgh and a member of an Edinburgh constituted sports club. The athlete must also represent their sport* at any of the following standards:

  • Scottish Institute of Sport
  • Scottish/British/European/World Championship Title Holder
  • Scottish or Great Britain Squad Member
  • Regional Development Squad

*Eligible athletes must participate in a sport that has a National Governing Body recognised by sportscotland.

Athletes will be entitled to free access to all Edinburgh Leisure gyms, swimming pools and athletics tracks. These services will support athletes with:

  • Recovery and rehabilitation
  • Strength and conditioning
  • Endurance and power physiology

Access to services is for use during individual training and will not apply to club or National Governing Body squad training.
