Welcome to the Sportivate page for North Yorkshire.
Announced in November 2010 as part of the Sport England 'Places People Play' Strategy, Sportivate is a programme aimed at increasing participation amongst people aged 14-25. North Yorkshire Sport are managing the programme within the County, and on this page you can find the following documents for download:

To download the North Yorkshire Delivery Plan Template Please submit any applications via this template on the form at the bottom of the page. Once the plan is submitted, North Yorkshire Sport will provide feedback on your delivery plan and work with you to try and fund the activity.
When making an application, North Yorkshire Sport will assess your application based on the following 3 aspects:
- Charge to participants: There should be a charge to the participants and this should offer enough value to make the activity good value for money, but also not be too cheap that a large jump in cost after the sportivate sessions proves to be a barrier.
- Community session: The sessions should take place in the community, and look and feel like a community session. For 14-16 year olds these should not be breakfast, lunchtime or after-school clubs. Sportivate is designed to have a lasting impact on community participation and the sportivate sessions should, where possible, replicate the community provision in terms of times and venues.
- Sustainability: This is the single biggest outcome of sportivate. We want as many of our 14-25 year olds to get back into a sport they played at school, or try out a new sport, and convert into a regular participant. With this in mind the exit route from sportivate should be the starting point when planning a new activity, and that should be the first box that is completed on the delivery plan. The participants will be surveyed 3 months after their sportivate sessions finish to see if they still participate and this is a key measure of success. Incentives can be offered through the sportivate programme such as subsidised membership, or by obtaining competency awards.
North Yorkshire Sport are welcoming bids aimed at 20-25 year olds and will give more weighting to applications that are targeting this age group.
