The Sportivate programme is aimed towards encouraging 16-25 year olds to take part in a sport of their choice for 6 weeks.

The programme targets people who are not currently choosing to participate in sport in their own time, or are doing so for a very limited amount of time. An important aspect of the initiative is to provide a sustainable exit route to a local sports club or a leisure membership.   

Sportivate Year 4 (April 2014 - April 2015)
