Sport Unlimited reports 60,938 young people retained over its national target
Sport England have released the Sport Unlimited term 9 report that marks the final term of the Sport Unlimited three-year programme and represents the spring 2011 term.
The final set of figures signify the biggest term of delivery of the whole of the Sport Unlimited programme, with over 207,620 young people engaged in activity and 175,500 (84.5%) of these retained. This retain figure is over 16,000 higher than the autumn term (2010) which was previously the most successful term of Sport Unlimited.
The overall retain figure across the three-year programme has reached 960,938 young people, which means that the overall retain target of 900,000 young people by the end of the spring term 2011 has been exceeded by almost 7%. This is a fantastic achievement from all those involved in the programme.
The Sport Unlimited sustainability tracking research was undertaken for a fourth consecutive term over the spring, which has not only allowed an assessment of young people's intentions but also young people's actual participation three months after their initial involvement in Sport Unlimited. During the spring term, 412 young people were tracked via this research, following their participation in activity in autumn 2011.
The spring term marks the end of the three-year Sport Unlimited programme and funding. CSPs, delivery partners and coaches have worked hard throughout the programme to ensure the overall three-year target was achieved.
