CRT Game On

CRT Game On uses the power of sport to change lives for the better in former coalfield communities. Our free sessions allow everyone to get involved, get active and learn new skills.

CRT Game On has five different strands:

Football 5ives

Football 5ives are free sessions to get young people off the streets and on to the football pitch. We run Football 5ives in 26 former coalfield communities and are always looking for ways to bring it to new places. Football 5ives gets young people healthy while helping them to learn new skills, supported by our dedicated coaches on local football pitches.

Game On Girls

Game On Girls introduces girls between five and twelve years old to football. It’s all about boosting confidence, learning new skills and having fun. We want girls to build a lifelong love of sport and bring on the next generation of female players in the professional game.

Lifelong Sport

Whether you’re two or eighty-two years old our Lifelong Sport programme has something for you. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a seasoned pro or total beginner, we have an activity to help you live a more active life. We help a child to find the sport for them, leading to a lifetime of benefits. We also bring older people together through sport helping them make new friends and stay active.

Game On Skills

We believe sport can play a role in a person’s life beyond participation: Game On Skills allows those taking part in CRT Game On to access training and volunteering opportunities to help them build the skills to establish a successful career in sport. 

CRT Home Internationals

An annual tournament which raises aspirations as young people from former coalfield communities in England, Scotland and Wales make new friends and compete to lift the CRT Home Internationals shield.
