Measuring Progress

A lot can change over ten years and although the Strategy will guide sport in the city, it should not constrain development where further change is needed to ensure that Coventry is a city where sport has an important part to play in everyday life. Over the lifetime of the Strategy, the Coventry Sports Network will regularly assess progress and align action plans to any changes in local, regional or national policies. To monitor and measure progress in delivering the Strategy, a wide range of data sources will be used.

The sources of data that have currently been included within the Strategy to monitor the delivery of the Strategic Objectives include the following:

  • Sport England (including the Active People Survey)
  • National Governing Bodies of Sport (Whole Sport Plan data)
  • Coventry Sports Network
  • Coventry Primary School PE & School Sport Funding
  • Annual School Sports Surveys
  • Public Sports and Leisure Operators – Coventry Sports Foundation / Coventry Sports Trust
  • Coventry University
  • University of Warwick
  • Coventry Sports User Surveys
  • Coventry Household Surveys
