Cost


Cost

Every youngster should be able to afford the cost of staying involved in sport. Every club should actively try to keep the cost of participating low for youngsters in order to avoid financial barriers to participation. Every club should discuss opportunities for individuals facing financial barriers (e.g. membership in exchange for voluntary tasks at the sports club).

Working actions

Actions for clubs

  • Offer family or group discounts.
  • Search for additional funds if parents and clubs cannot pay all the activity costs. (e.g. local subsidies from municipalities, associations, and projects)
  • Give youngsters and parents the opportunity to decrease the contribution by working voluntary for the club.

Quick scan Y-score for sports clubs

How youth-oriented is your sports club? In other words, is your club accessible and attractive to young members? Does the club give enough consideration to the wishes, needs and possibilities of the various groups of young people? And especially, how can this be improved?

The Y-score answers these questions. It is an instrument that quickly and easily gives insight into how youth-oriented your club is. It helps you to look at your club through a young person’s ‘pair of glasses’.
