Sporting Chance

With levels of knife crime at an all-time high in Hertfordshire, the Herts Sports Partnership is using sport as an early intervention to deter young people on the cusp of the youth justice system away from engaging in criminal activity.

Sporting Chance has been designed with vulnerable young lives in mind and uses boxing and multi-sports as the conduits to focusing young people at risk, through positive diversionary activities. Supported by Hertfordshire Constabulary, Stevenage FC Foundation, Watford FC Community Sports & Education Trust, YC Hertfordshire and a team of boxing coaches, the programme offers weekly sport sessions in community venues such as schools, sports clubs and leisure centres.
