Urgent Update: Change in Strategic Direction
We have been a franchisee of Active Future since our inception. However, due to a difference in values between the directors of A Hill Sport LTD and Active Future Holdings LTD, we have decided to depart from the franchise network and embark on our own adventure. Over the next few weeks, there will be many changes to the website and the opportunities we offer children and adults throughout Leicester. We’re going to offer so much more than Active Future ever could on its own as we build our own ecosystem. We can’t wait!
Going forward, we will no longer be using the name of Active Future in our marketing and promotions and instead will be reverting to AltSport. The information below is yet to be updated completely.
It is only fair that we issue a full and frank statement regarding our relationship with Active Future and why our relationship with the franchisor broke down, this will be released un due course.
For our current customers, rest assured we have already taken steps to ensure business continuity and there will be no impact on the sessions we currently host. The only thing that is changing is our name, logo and some of our policies, further information will be released in due course.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Company Director of A Hill Sport LTD.
Encouraging life-long participation in sport and activity across Leicester and Leicestershire
AltSport promotes development and social inclusion through play by delivering sport and activities to children and adults Leicestershire.
Around a third of men and half of all women in England are unknowingly causing damage to their health through a lack of physical activity and for children, by the time they become adolescents, they’re engaging in around one hour less physical activity than when they were 6 years old.
Physical activity and active lifestyles have widespread benefits on people’s lives. Children who are physically active are more likely to achieve more in their academic careers and has a positive effect on employability. Workplaces that regularly engage in physical activity, such as workplace football leagues, are proven to be more product and an active population improves the economic performance of the country. Physical activity improves mental and physical health and wellbeing and it helps people, especially young people, reduce their likelihood of engaging in risk-taking behaviour such as crime or antisocial behaviour and improves community cohesion.
Our strategy prioritises increasing physical activity in a range of groups, including children and young people, women, Asian and Black ethnic groups, individuals from poorer socio-economic backgrounds, older age groups and those living with disabilities. Interestingly, these values are shared by AltSport as some of the key market segments we want to work with.
Increasing the sports provision in a range of areas, AltSport is able to deliver sport and activity sessions to the range of people we and Leicester City Council want to work with.
Our priority is to benefit the community at large, directly helping the specific groups we aim to work with, from children and young adults to adults and older age groups. Working in one-to-one and team settings, devising sessions around the needs of our participants allows us to remain dynamic and versatile whether it’s delivering futsal, dodgeball, boccia Hunted or Fortnite Nerf Wars sessions or any of the other sports and activities we offer.
We work closely with a range of organisations to offer multi-sport and activity sessions for children and adults across Leicestershire. We deliver weekly multi-sport sessions across the city including dodgeball sessions in Braunstone Town and Melton Mowbray, table tennis, handball, futsal and inclusive sessions for children and adults with physical disabilities, learning difficulties, behavioural difficulties and conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia and more. Some of the inclusive sports AltSport leads include sports such as boccia, seated volleyball and more. To find out where your nearest club is, please contact us.
Local Authority & Charity
We offer services to the local authority and departments and organisations within local authorities across the Midlands including Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and Coventry City Council; from city and county councils to parish councils. Some of the departments we can offer services to include social services, alcohol and drug services, leisure centres and more. We’re working hard to provide sports and activity sessions as part of our Holidays, Activities and Food (HAF) programme.
We also work closely with various charities and community interest companies to improve social inclusion throughout the Midlands, alleviating food poverty and promoting financial equality within our communities. Our charitable drive is so strong that we incorporated Leicester Active CIC which heads up our food bank and other charitable, non-profit activities.
