The Youth Sport Award is a reward and celebration scheme which helps young people to evidence their learning, progress and achievement in and through sport and physical activity. It also supports them to demonstrate the impact their involvement in sport has had on their personal development, including leadership skills, health and wellbeing and wider life skills. Targeted at 10-24 year olds, it aims to build positive lifestyle habits and behaviours and empowers young people to take ownership of developing their own skills. There are five different levels of the Award; Go, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
Founded with partners Loughborough University, this programme is the first of its kind to develop and grow leadership and management skills using the power of sport. It helps to support wider academic achievement and improve physical and emotional wellbeing by incentivising physical activity.
