The Active Rotherham Team

The Active Rotherham Team aims to increase participation in sport and physical activity with additional focus on those most inactive, young people, older people, people with disabilities, women and black and ethnic minorities.

The team have developed strong partnerships and network infrastructures with schools, clubs, community groups and other organisations to provide and enable high quality sporting opportunities. This enables people of all ages to take part in sport and physical activity for fun and health through to organised instruction, coaching and competition.

Positive engagement in sports and physical activity has numerous benefits including helping to address and tackle social and health issues. Active Rotherham will continue to achieve this by expanding networks and partnerships to deliver the best quality opportunities.
