Reasons for Success Consultation – Speaking with local partners, clubs and leisure providers and seeing where gaps are in provision. Sportivate funding great incentive for clubs to help with gaps in age groups, gender etc. Targeted Approach / promotion- 18 – 25 year olds. We really targeted the workplaces that had a high % of employees in this age group, Supermarkets, Retail, Shift work. Benefits for Employer – Taster Health Days at Supermarkets were a good way of promoting projects along with explaining benefits of a healthy workplace. Gives coach / lead a chance to meet potential participants which offers familiar face on 1 st session
Reasons for Success Partnerships – Working in partnership with Clubs, Leisure Provider, Schools, CSP and workplaces was key reason for success. Partners would take ownership of projects, offering in-kind financial support, drive project, making participants feel part of club / leisure centre, Staff ensuring that the whole club / leisure centre understand project from Reception / 1 st point of call – Centre manager.
Reasons for Success Exit Routes / Incentives – Ensuring that there are good sustainable exit routes available to Sportivate participants linked to activity. Great Coach / Lead – We crucially had great coaches leading the projects and being the first point of call for participants. The main reason for people coming back is due to their first experience at Club and Gym. The lead also made them feel part of the club and not so scary to transition into club / leisure centre along with really driving promotion of project.
Benefits for Cherwell DC Partnerships – Sportivate projects have led to working with new partners which may not have been formed without sportivate projects. Partnerships with existing partners have been made stronger due to working together ( Parkwood) and this has led to many projects forming as a result of Sportivate work. Cherwell DC Coroporate objectives – Helped to contribute to objectives such as “Safe & Healthy District” & “District of Opportunity” by increasing opportunities in the district for targeted young people and encourage a healthy lifestyle Sport Dev Budget – Delivering projects that are benefitting the district through external funding.
Benefits for Cherwell DC Sport Clubs – Increased relationship with local clubs and made great links for future work and new development groups that previously were not there. Gave Cherwell greater insight into local clubs needs / priorities Increased Provision - Sportivate has massively increased the provision of sport and activities in Cherwell DC. Projects have enabled clubs to attract new members, Leisure Centres to target difficult age groups and new satellite and clubs (basketball, archery) have been developed as a result of sportivate funding.
Future from Sportivate Projects Sustainability – Now clubs and Leisure providers see the benefit of incentivised opportunities these will now become integral part of Leisure Centre / Club without Sportivate Funding Partnership work – Continue great partnership work as a result of Sportivate projects and work together in other projects together to achieve combined outcomes. Continue Business promotions and partnerships. Increase Provision - Increased provision of sustainable activities especially for 18 – 25 year olds will continue due to success of projects
