Our Vision and Ambitions

Becoming a leading sporting county

Derbyshire Sport's vision is to make Derbyshire one of the most active and successful sporting counties in the country.

To achieve this, we have three ambitions.

1) Increasing Participation

To increase the number of people of all ages and abilities who regularly take part in sport and active recreation, so that Derbyshire is placed within the top quartile of Active People data.

2) Improve Player Pathways

To improve the talent pathways in Derbyshire, so that more performers from Derbyshire fulfil their potential and progress to compete at national and international level in selected sports.

3) Strengthen the Sports System

To increase the number of organisations from the public, private and third sectors that are contributing to the vision and ambitions of this plan and to strengthen their sense of purpose as measured by the Derbyshire Sport stakeholder survey.

What we do at Derbyshire Sport

Watch our video on what Derbyshire Sport is doing to improve physical activity and sport across the county.

If we are successful, more people of all ages and regardless of background, will live active lives, play sport, and reach the highest levels in sport. They will lead, coach, volunteer and inspire others, and we will be regarded as a successful sporting county.
