Sport for all is a cornerstone of our work and underpins everything that we do.
Our community trusts are the first rung on the ladder for aspiring young footballers and cater for all ages and ability levels. We go beyond football to work with a wide range of other sports to encourage more people to play sport and be more active on a regular basis. We make a strong contribution to the Government’s Olympic Legacy plans and vision for PE & School Sport.
Increasingly, our schemes are delivering a range of sports such as futsal, rugby, cricket, hockey, basketball, dance and fitness to engage with a broader base of participants and meet the demands, particularly of young people, who want to experience different sports.
The challenge of increasing the numbers of people engaged in sport – and sustaining their participation – extends across all generations. We are committed to increasing both the number and quality of sports coaches working in schools and across our organisations as well as ensuring that these coaches have the skills to engage with all sections of our communities.
