Youth and Sport subsidies: synthesis report

Federal Office of Sport

Key facts

The Youth and Sport (Y+S) programme of the Federal Office of Sport (FOSPO) supports organisers – mainly sports clubs – of sports courses and camps for children and young people with contributions. Approximately CHF 100 million, or about 80% of FOSPO’s total subsidy credit, is used to support around 70 sports and disciplines and over 600,000 participants per year. FOSPO is responsible for the programme and works together with sports associations and the cantons, which in turn are responsible for approvals and systematic controls of courses and camps. A key programme objective is the basic and advanced training of Y+S instructors.
