Sportivate is a nationwide campaign and a direct legacy from the London 2012 Games by providing opportunities for teenagers and young adults (aged 14-25) to receive coaching in a sport of their choice and guide them into regular participation within their community.
This page is for sports providers and partners involved in the delivery of Sportivate.
ALL Y2 Q4 DATA MUST BE UPLOADED BY 19th APRIL OR ELSE YOUR FUNDING WILL BE RE-ALLOCATED.
OTHER CRITICAL DEADLINES CAN BE FOUND IN THE DOWNLOADS SECTION ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE.

The Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) for the Sportivate Programme will be collected via the Sportivate Online Portal. This can be accessed at: www.sportivateportal.org. Deliverers will receive an email introducing them to the portal after their project details have been confirmed with Wesport.
Training on how to use the portal is available to all deliverers via an on-line YouTube video clip:
Criteria for Projects:
Projects must target 14 to 25 year olds in the ‘semi sporty’ category
All projects must have an evidence of demand to justify the need for the activity.
All projects need run over 6-8 weeks and each session needs to be a minimum of 1 hour.
All projects must demonstrate sustainability and have a clear exit route. Participants will need to be supported into local clubs or alternative sports provision.
Projects can run all year round, with no constraints on holiday periods.
Activities must be new, or build on and extend current provision to new participants.
Activities run by schools/colleges on their own sites must be delivered by community providers and be open to the wider community.
Activity can take place at anytime of the day, EXCEPT If the activity is based at a school where curriculum time activity is ineligible.
The major delivery plan for Year 3 (April - Sept 2013) has now been submitted to Sport England but we are still happy to accept project plans at any time. Please complete and send to Lisa Wood: Lisa4.Wood@uwe.ac.uk
We are anticipating to be over subscribed in Year 3 so will be stricter in our assessment process. We will look more favourably on plans that show evidence of the following:
- Engagement with their NGB
- A focus on 19+
- A focus on females
- Clear evidence of demand from Young People
- Clear progression into sustainable community activity

All Sportivate activities will be uploaded onto Wesport's Get Active Website to help promote the sessions for you. This will provide a one stop shop for Club, Facility and Activity information for the West of England Area. Sports Providers will need to submit the relevant details to enable their activity to be uploaded onto the site.
If you are looking for volunteers to help you run your Sportivate sessions then Sport Makers can help. By linking with Sport Makers you will have the opportunity to promote your club, organisation or event to a large number of people aged 16 plus who are looking at getting involved in volunteering in sport.
