Set a personal challenge

During the six-to-eight weeks those taking part can work towards an event or personal challenge and when the free or low-cost coaching has finished they will be supported to continue playing sport.

Sportivate launched in June 2011 as a four-year programme but, due to its success, additional funding has been secured to extend the programme until March 2017.
