WHAT IS SPORTIVATE?
Sportivate is a £56 million Lottery funded London 2012 legacy project that gives more young people the chance to discover a sport that they love. The programme gives 11-25 year-olds who are not particularly sporty access to six-to-eight weeks' of free or subsidised coaching in a range of sports. There’s a wide range of activities on offer including judo, golf, tennis, dodgeball, athletics, and parkour/free running.
During the six-to-eight weeks those taking part can work towards an event or personal challenge and when the free or low-cost coaching has finished they will be supported to continue playing sport.
Sportivate launched in June 2011 as a four-year programme aimed at 14-25 year-olds but, due to its success, additional funding of £10m per year has been invested allowing the programme to run until March 2017 as well as extending its age group so that 11-13 year-olds can also take part.
Sportivate is inclusive and targets a variety of young people including those who have a disability and people from black and minority ethnic groups.

Through Sportivate, London Sport funds hundreds of projects in the community a year and we really like getting good news stories and Case studies. As they come in we will try our utmost to share these with you so you can see some of this great work and also be inspired to take pictures, wax lyrical about your good work, as well as make videos. Over the next few months we are looking to add as many videos and pictures to this page so please do submit any good news stories.
We start with a video from Sheniz Tan and Lionheart in the Community, whose project 'Get Croydon Active' used a multitude of sports and activities to engage and retain lots of new-to-sport participants in regular activity. Take a look.
Also some videos we have been sent from projects who delivered over 2013/14 are in the video below put together by our London Sport South office.
