The DSAuk promotes grassroots participation in sport and physical activity, starting with young athletes from the age of two. We use sport as a tool to break down the barriers of difference within society and to encourage confidence and empower our members. It is so important that the our members feel valued and that they can do anything in life. We empower people to go on to enjoy all kinds of sport, in which they can compete equally and should they wish to go further, we guide them on to the correct pathway to world class performance within the national governing bodies of sport. But it's not about being the best, it's about feeling good with who you are and knowing that you can achieve anything you want to do in life as well as in sport.
