Sport in Stirling

Stirling is one of the best places to be active and is an area where we change lives through sport, play and physical activity.

We are inclusive and want to make Stirling a place where everyone can take part in physical activity and sport, helping people to realise their potential, and remain physically active throughout their lives.


  • We ensure physical education, physical activity and sport (PEPAS), and play, are embedded within all schools, educational establishments and communities across Stirling.
  • We work in partnership with clubs and communities to ensure that high-quality, inclusive and sustainable sport, play and physical activity are available for all. 
  • We ensure inclusive opportunities are available for all of Stirling’s citizens, regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, circumstance or ability to lead active, healthy lives - improving wellbeing and tackling health inequality.
  • We maximise the use and capacity of indoor and outdoor spaces to provide safe, high-quality places for all, including visitors and elite athletes.
