Every Child Hooked on Sport for Life

Giving young people a voice

We want every child to experience the positive benefits that participating in sport brings.

Not solely the health benefits, but the confidence and new skills, such as leadership, that participation enables. We want to give young people a voice and encourage them to inspire their peers to become hooked on sport for life.

Through our successful programmes, where children are taught movement skills and have the confidence to participate in sports and activities that will excite and engage them for life, education has a vital role to play.

Schools are central to the physical education, health and wellbeing of every child. And the role of the teacher is paramount.  We need more teachers who are competent, confident and enthusiastic about teaching PE and further commitment to teacher training.

We need greater opportunities for children to continue and progress with their love for sport, in clubs beyond school hours, and as they leave school. The links between provision in school and in communities is absolutely critical if we are to achieve our aspiration of engaging children and young people for life.

Our aspiration

Our aspiration is to help create vibrant environments where club membership continues to grow, and where there is a wide variety of sports, from competitive teams to recreational activities; all designed to inspire all young people to become and remain active for life.
