Effective Doorstep Sport not only gives young people the opportunity to take part in sport and physical activity in a safe and comfortable environment, it improves activity levels, confidence and sporting know-how, and provides opportunities for personal growth and development that improve life chances. It helps young people to develop confidence, competence, and new social networks.
Learning from organisations in the StreetGames network has identified several key ingredients underpinning effective Doorstep Sport.
The workshops and training here are all about understanding that Young People must be at the centre of Doorstep Sport. Young people, living in low-income underserved communities, as the primary beneficiaries of doorstep sport, must be central to the way in which each one of the ingredients is designed, developed and delivered.
