Project Details


The project Keep Youngsters Involved aims to find answers to this question. In many European countries we see that a lot of youngsters give up sport due to a lack of motivation, problems with school or job schedule or different interests. This project targets youngsters (12-19 years) in general and specifically those from lower socio-economic backgrounds.

Key findings

We identified 14 factors and created a toolkit with cards consisting of concrete actions to keep youngsters involved in sport. The kit can be used by sport clubs, professionals (coaches/trainers) and volunteers who work with youngsters all over the world.
