Olympic legacy programme gave young people the opportunity to try out different sports

Premier League 4 Sport (PL4Sport) ran from 2009-2016 and used the power of professional clubs to inspire young people to get involved in 12 different sports.

Run in partnership with Sport England, PL4Sport provided sessions for young people to try sports for the first time in the heart of their community.

Through strong links with National Governing Bodies participants were given the opportunity to progress in to local clubs as well as talent pathways while many young people have gained qualifications in the sport and volunteer on the programme.

This created inspiring role models who are able to connect with the community.

The programme was delivered by 36 clubs, each with a dedicated coordinator who worked locally with the sports clubs and schools to maximise opportunities for young people.

The programme offered opportunities in 12 sports - athletics, badminton, basketball, boxing, golf, handball, hockey, judo, netball, table tennis, tennis and volleyball.
