Active Children & Young People

What We Do

The most recent Children’s Sport Participation and Physical Activity Study (CSPPA) which was published in 2019 highlighted that 17% of primary school children and 10% of post primary school children meet the national physical activity guidelines of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity per day while 80% of primary and 58% of post primary participate in community sport and physical activity once per week. 



Getting Involved...

DSP through its Active Children and Young Peoples strategy continually advocates for the importance of sport and physical activity and recreational play to our children and young people through a range of programmes and initiatives within the school and community settings.
