Background and Company Structure
In February 2011 Lochaber Sports Association was formed as a result of the merger between Sportlochaber and Lochaber Sports Council, continuing to be a Company Limited by Guarantee and with Charitable Status.
The Company is managed by the Board of Directors and has one sub-committee, the Grants and Awards Committee.
The six Directors are elected by the affiliated clubs and are responsible for the company’s activities.
The Grants and Awards Committee members are representatives from affiliated clubs. It meets at least bi-monthly to consider applications.
We are a community-led initiative, seeking to work
- locally – in partnership with the clubs and Highland Council and closely with Lochaber’s primary and secondary schools (through the Active Schools Co-ordinators), VAL
- nationally – with sportscotland, SALSC, Coaching Highland and HSDA
We aim to support all Lochaber’s residents who wish to lead a healthy lifestyle through physical activity, and who would benefit from facilities catering for those who play organised sports, those who wish to keep generally fit, and those who need specialised training to support their chosen sport.
LSA membership is open to all Sports Clubs in the Lochaber area organising sports activities recognised by sportscotland and individuals, where no club caters for their sport in the area. Clubs and individuals must complete an Application Form
Annual renewal membership fees are due on 1st May.
The year runs from 1 May to 30 April.

Fees for the current year are £40 for Club Membership and £15 for individuals.
