Competition Managers and the National Competition Framework

Launched in September 2005, the National Competition Framework for young people sets out the following vision:

1. A world-class system of competitive sport for young people;
2. Transformation of the content, structure and presentation of competitive opportunities for young people of school age;
3. A heightened profile for school sport and, specifically, competitive opportunities.


Work is already underway to develop a single competitive framework for each sport that includes competitions in schools and clubs. The challenge is to deliver high quality pathways which will leave a lasting legacy up to and beyond the 2012 Olympics.


This exciting work is a collaboration between the Youth Sport Trust, Sport England, the National Council for School Sport (NCSS) and the National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs).


So far 13 Sports have written their competition frameworks. Competition Managers are now operating in all 9 Regions and across 16 Counties.
