Thousands of teenagers and young adults across Cumbria are benefiting from a sports programme that aims to fulfil the legacy promise made by Seb Coe in Singapore in 2005 to 'inspire young people to choose sport'.
Sportivate gives 11 to 25-year-olds the chance to receive six to eight weeks of coaching in a sport of their choice. Launched by Sport England and County Sports Partnerships, the £56 million National Lottery-funded project helps those who aren't currently playing sport in their own time to get out and give sport a go.
As part of the Places People Play mass participation legacy programme, Sportivate will see 300,000 teenagers and young adults across England completing sports courses over six years up until March 2017.
Thanks to £374,700 of Lottery investment in Cumbria, at least 3747 local 11-25 yr olds will be able to take part in activities.
