On the Right Track! is a sports development programme which will create opportunities for young people and sports clubs to learn, share and play together.
The project is part of Belfast’s PEACE IV Action Plan, financed through the European Union and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) and is designed to combine sport and good relations to maximise benefits to participants, clubs and community groups and promote peace and reconciliation.
On the right track is perfect for clubs that are trying to:
On the Right Track! comprises of three distinct complimentary tracks – once your club has registered to take part in the programme as a whole, all three tracks will be available to you and your club members.
Track 1 – Participation
Track 2 – Club development
Track 3 – Personal Development for young champions
On the Right Track! will build lasting partnerships between sports clubs and community groups across the city. The Participation Track encourages partners to work collaboratively to deliver grass roots programmes to build resilience and encourage play within communities.
We need partner clubs, schools and community groups to recruit and engage young people and deliver this track.
We will fund these partner clubs to deliver sports specific sessions for young people aged 13-16 years old, creating pathways to long-term participation and increasing the number of young people from different backgrounds who socialise and play sport together more often.
We will use an inspiring training provider to deliver workshops in equality, diversity and inclusion to participants and coaches, making sure peace and reconciliation issues are addressed, stereotypes are challenged and relationships are formed, improving relations now and in the future.
This is a suggested schedule for Track 1.

Track 2 will upskill your coaches to deal with peace and reconciliation issues as a normal part of session delivery. This track will, ensure your club is prepared for the challenges faced within a mixed membership club in Belfast. Interesting and thought provoking training and practical skills will produce coaches who are confident in addressing underlying issues that present as problem behaviours. Our training will support coaches to address sectarianism, racism and sexism, mental health and become drivers for peace building in Belfast, long after you’ve reached the end of this Track.
Our young champions will be young leaders or aspiring coaches aged 16 -24 years old from a community group or sports club. They will have a hunger to demonstrate and develop their leadership qualities. This track will motivate these young people to develop skills that will support their club and community to work collaboratively and deal with peace and reconciliation issues under the guidance of their club coaches and community leaders. Identifying and upskilling future leaders ensures our community has the skills required to implement change now and in the future.
We are delighted to confirm that full Programming costs for On the right track! will be funded under the Peace IV programme through SEUPB to an approximate sum of £15,000 per partnership.
