The Co-operative StreetGames Young Volunteers, or CSYV, is a pioneering initiative which helps young people from disadvantaged communities between the ages of 16 and 25 to improve their sports coaching and community leadership skills through volunteering at their local sports projects.
StreetGames is proud to be supported by and be in partnership with The Co-operative, the UK’s largest mutual business which places as much importance on its values, principles and the way it uses profits for the benefit of all those with whom it works, as it does on commercial success.

The Football Pools became an Official Partner of StreetGames in February 2013 with the launch of the StreetGames Football Pools Fives.
StreetGames and The Football Pools share a common belief in the power of football to enhance the lives of young people. The Football Pools has always been committed to leaving a lasting legacy and has so far donated over £1.1 billion to sport, the arts and charitable initiatives.
The StreetGames Football Pools Fives programme provides opportunities for young men and women, aged 16 and over, from disadvantaged areas of the UK to play 5-a-side football and to also experience coaching and try a range of other sports and activities.
Through the programme male and female players of mixed abilities can play 5-a-side without having to make the commitment of joining the 11-a-side game.
There will be hundreds of local football festivals across the UK, leading to regional festivals in 11 cities and then a national final.
StreetGames Football Pools Fives has a series of aims beyond increasing participation in sport amongst those aged 16 and over. The programme plans to target neighbourhoods that are the hardest to reach and the most under-serviced in the UK. By involving young people in sport and providing a support structure to the people involved, the programme aims to give young people the chance to gain confidence, qualifications and establish a better position within a difficult job market.
