Commonwealth Games Scotland (CGS) today announced the first tranche of Sport Team Managers for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
Eight of the 17 participating sports have completed their recruitment process in conjunction with CGS, with the remainder to be finalised by the end of October this year.
Commenting on the appointments Jon Doig CGS Chief Executive and Chef de Mission for 2010 said: “I am pleased to welcome the ten new members to the team. These individuals have a wealth of experience in some cases as competitors or performance directors and all as team managers. I know they are looking forward to the challenges ahead as we start our preparation programme for Delhi.”
A comprehensive training programme for Sport Team Managers is already underway and will continue in the build-up to 2010, to ensure they are fully equipped to provide the best possible support to their team. They will also go to Delhi on a familiarisation visit in May next year.
