Scottish Disability Sport (SDS)

SDS is the co-coordinating and governing body of sports for all people with disabilities in Scotland. SDS has, in membership, organisations that have a specific interest in sport and/or disability. SDS operates a local branch structure that covers almost the whole of Scotland. The branch is where individuals with a disability are introduced to sport at a participation level. Sports people may then progress to the SDS sport specific squad structure where they will hopefully develop their full potential.
