Who are Sportily?

We are a network of fun-loving sport and faith groups where you can try different sports, make new friends and explore what life is all about. Find us across Gloucestershire running clubs in schools, community facilities and open spaces.


Sportily logoSportily is committed to providing the best quality sports coaching and education, with fun and joy being at the heart of all the training sessions. Young people will be supported and encouraged to develop their leadership skills and their feedback and insight will help shape Sportily to suit the future needs and hopes of our community.


We are incredibly fortunate in the diocese of Gloucester to have worked alongside PSALMS for a number of years.

PSALMS started in 2005 in Painswick, when they realised that many young people, especially boys, spent their Sundays on the football pitch or engaging in other active pursuits. This lead a group of Christians to start engaging with young people through sports ministry.

PSALMS are merging with Sportily, which means that their excellent sports ministers, their expertise and connections will all be part of the Sportily family.

What the Sportily team do

Sportily is a dedicated team who have supported the school relentlessly with their fantastic sporting activities.

Leading Active R.E, the Sportily Ministers explore Religious Education through sport, leading the children in games linked to Christian stories and linked to the class R.E. topic, followed by time for reflection.

Sportily also get involved with leading worship and run a range of fantastic lunchtime and after school clubs:

  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • PULSAR Club
  • Holiday Clubs
  • PULSAR Games
  • Open The Book

Their clubs and events encourage our children to be active and energetic by providing engaging and fun sporting events. Underpinning their activities are their Christian values whereby they share the love of Christ with the children. They joyfully encourage children to explore their relationship with the world and support children in their Christian understanding and Christian values.
