Year 6 of the Sportivate programme finished at the end of March and it has been an incredibly successful year once again. 3,640 young people attended at least five of their six activity sessions, resulting in the retention target set by Sport England being exceeded by over 60%. This is an excellent achievement and we greatly appreciate the hard work and support of our partners.
It has also been particularly pleasing that 60% of the young people who engaged in the programme were inactive on enrollment, with a large number of them becoming much more regularly active following their involvement in Sportivate.
Linked to the new Sport England strategy, Year 7 of the programme has a substantially increased focus on targeting inactive young people, and we look forward to working with our partners to engage and change the behavior of these young people.
