Through Sportivate, CSPs play a pivotal role in engaging children and young people into sport. Targeted at those who do not choose to participate in sport in their own time, Sportivate aims to inspire, motivate and support young people aged 11 to 25 to build a sporting habit for life. CSPs work with local delivery partners to plan and deliver high-quality coaching sessions in activities that appeal to young people.
47,725 local sportivate projects since 2011, with 641,115 young people have taken part and completed a Sportivate project.
Using local insight and targeted programmes CSPs have successfully increased the number of female participants to 45.8%, an increase of 4.6 percentage points since year one. In addition there is also significant increases in the number disabled young people and those from black and ethnic backgrounds.
