 Sportivate is a £32 million Lottery programme that gives 11-25 year olds access to six to eight week courses in a range of sports including judo, golf, tennis, wakeboarding, athletics, and parkour or free running.

The programme is aimed at those who are not currently choosing to take part in sport in their own time, or are doing so for a very limited amount of time, and will support them to continue playing sport in their community after the project is finished. 

Sportivate is fully inclusive and targets participants across this group, including young people who have a disability, males and females and people from people BME groups.

In Berkshire we have a range of organisations delivering over 50 projects across the county covering a wide range of sports including Sailing, Equestrian, Zumba and Badminton. If you are 11 – 25 and would like to take part in one of these activities please go to our activity finder to find your nearest opportunity. 

If you are an organisation interested in writing an application for a Sportivate project please click here for the application form and guidance notes

Recent research completed by Sport England has provided greater insight into the behaviours and attitudes of young people and the type of project that they are likely to engage with. Please see our overview of this insight research and use it to shape your Sportivate project/s.

A number of Sportivate Providers have kindly completed case study forms to share lessons learnt and examples of good practice. 

We have also developed a Reward and Recognition Scheme to help develop, reward and recognise those coaches who have been part of a Sportivate project.

If you would like to talk to Get Berkshire Active about your project idea before writing an application please don't hesitate to get in touch.
