Sporting Champions

Sporting Champions is a Sport England initiative that brings world-class athletes face-to-face with young people and young adults to inspire and motivate them to take up and continue playing sport

A team of current and retired elite athletes who have a wealth of experience and enthusiasm for sport are working with young people across the country to encourage them to play more sport.

The scheme is primarily aligned to the Sportivate programme but Sporting Champions are also supporting the Sainsbury’s School Games Festivals and other youth programmes. The Sporting Champions initiative offers county sport partnerships and local organising committees the chance to use the knowledge, expertise and experiences of elite sports people to inspire young people.
