Sportivate background 

Sportivate is Sport England's new national initiative developed to encourage 11-25 year olds to take part in selected weeks of activities. The programme is part of Sport England's mass participation legacy programme called Places, People, Play aimed at establishing a lasting legacy from 2012.

The aim is for 300,000 participants between 2011-2015 to complete weekly coaching sessions with 120,000 carrying on playing sport regularly. The programme will target people who are not currently choosing to participate in sport regularly or only for a limited amount of time.

Key aspects 

  • There must be a clear demand for an activity/project.

  • All activities/projects must link to a sustainable exit route. This can be through a community club, casual participation or through leisure membership.

  • Participants must attend five out of six sessions.
