The event will focus on three key priorities: the morning will involve sharing of practice, highlighting how we can Tackle Inequalities and ensure we are reaching those who need us most. The afternoon will focus on Youth Engagement and the importance of involving young people in creating their offer, before we develop our understanding of Physical Literacy and share innovative approaches to creating positive experiences.

If you have any questions or issues with booking onto the event, please contact the regional support team on who will be able to support.


This year’s National Summit will take place at the Coventry Building Society Arena, Judds Lane, Longford, Coventry, CV6 6GE.

Due to its geographical position, the Coventry Building Society Arena is within a 2 hour drive of 75% of the population. The venue has 2,000 parking spaces and is easy to access from the local train station and Birmingham International Airport.


As with previous years, the event will contain a variety of workshops; the full programme can be downloaded via the National Summit 2023 Programme document at the side of this page. Alternatively, you can watch this video to find out more about the workshops.
