Giving Children and Young People a Sporting Chance - A Draft Strategy for Scotland, 09/12/13 - 02/03/14 [S]

The Scottish Government has published a draft youth sport strategy for Scotland. A final version of the Strategy will be published in spring 2014 following a consultation which is open until 2 March 2014.

Key actions in the draft Strategy include:

  • Extending competitive sport in and between schools to ensure young people have the opportunity to experience these events at an early level
  • Ensuring that every Community Sport Hub has young people as an integral part of their management team as well as further developing youth activities
  • Ensuring that every secondary school which wishes can have access to or be a Community Sport Hub
  • Involving disabled young people fully in PE and sports provision
  • Ensuring high quality coaches, leaders, and volunteers raise the profile of young people in sport.

During the consultation, the Scottish Government and sportscotland will work closely with partners including Young Scot, Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People and the Children’s Parliament to ensure views are received from a broad range of children and young people.
