Sports Development

Giving all young Londoners a lifelong love of sport

London Youth has been supporting youth organisations to offer sports opportunities to young Londoners for over 130 years.

Getting Ready, London Youth’s sports development programme, offers young people high quality, fun sports opportunities within their local community.

Through Getting Ready, our pan-London calendar of events, weekly taster sessions and weekend training residential trips, volunteering opportunities and sports leadership training courses, we can offer a huge range of sporting opportunities to our members.

This film has been produced by CVC Capital Partners, supporters of London Youth’s sports programmes.

We have ambitious targets for young Londoners and community sport:

  • 30,000 more young Londoners playing sport over the next 10 years.
  • Twice as many young people with disabilities participating.
  • Double the number of young women and girls taking part.
  • Using sport as a tool to ensure our local communities are better connected.

This will help even more young Londoners to build their confidence, resilience and relationship skills whilst developing a lifelong love of sport. In turn, our sports programmes enhance local communities and support social integration.
