The programme gives 11-25 year-olds access to six-to-eight weeks' of free or subsidised coaching in a range of sports. There’s a wide range of activities on offer including judo, golf, tennis, dodgeball, athletics, and parkour/free running.
During the six-to-eight weeks those taking part can work towards an event or personal challenge and when the free or low-cost coaching has finished they will be supported to continue playing sport.
Sportivate launched in June 2011 as a four-year programme aimed at 11-25 year-olds but, due to its success, additional funding of £10m per year was invested allowing programmes to be funded until August 2017 and delivery to occur until December 2017.
Sportivate is inclusive and targets a variety of young people including those who have a disability and people from black and minority ethnic groups.
