News from our partners Energize Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin

On Monday 25 August 2015 Energize Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, in partnership with Shropshire Council’s leisure services and Telford and Wrekin Council’s leisure services, are hosting a night at Shirehall, Shrewsbury to share the new Insight tools, project planning resources and themes of Sportivate 2015, with a view to help projects get on the right track for success with Sportivate in 2015.

The evening aims to give sports clubs and sports providers all the information needed to be able to submit an application for the Sportivate project round (closing date 9 September 2015).

This event is for anyone interested in developing a project, and will considerably increase chances of a provider securing a successful sportivate project. On the night attendees will have the opportunity to start to develop a project idea, ask questions about the new criteria, and access some new planning tools developed from the new Sport England Youth Insight resources.

Sportivate has helped thousands of young people across the county get more active, and this may be a chance to secure funding to get a workplace, school, community or club more active. For more information about the event please email info@energizestw.org.uk, or to book at place at the event, please click here.

Sportivate Overview

Sportivate gives young people between 11 and 25 who are not particularly sporty access to six to eight weeks of subsidised coaching in a range of sports. There’s a wide range of activities on offer including judo, golf, tennis, canoeing, athletics, and parkour/free running (to name just a few).
