Sportivate

Sportivate is a nationwide campaign that aims to capture the enjoyment of sport, providing opportunities for teenagers and young adults (including disability sport) to receive 6 weeks of coaching or led sessions.

Sportivate is a £32 million National Lottery funded programme and is part of the Play strand of Sport England's London 2012 mass participation legacy programme 'Places People Play'. The overall aim of this project is for 300,000 participants aged 11-25 years to complete weekly coaching sessions over four years with 120,000 (2 in 5), carrying on playing sport regularly. Sportivate will try to change habits and get more young people doing activity regularly.

Sportivate will run between April 2011 and run until March 2017.

What makes your session UNMISSABLE for young people

sports coach UK and Sport England have been working together to support youth coaches in understanding the Youth Insight 'The challenge of growing youth participation in sport' and how this might be used to make sessions more engaging, attractive and meaningful for young people.

They have created a short animation and accompanying support guide for coaches to generate ideas for their sessions. 'What makes your session UNMISSABLE for young people' draws on recent research and contains fun ideas and tips for planning sessions

    sports coach UK and Sport England have been working together to support youth coaches in understanding and applying learning from the latest youth insight Under the Skin. As part of this, we asked young people why they take part in sport or activity. The challenge for coaches, activators and leaders is to plan and deliver sessions to meet these reasons for taking part. Remember - all young people are different and will have different reasons for taking part, based on their different experiences, personality and lifestyle factors.
