The Pass’Sport assistance system for sports practice will be renewed in 2024

The Ministry of Sport and the Olympic and Paralympic Games (JOP) has managed to keep the funding intended for the Pass’Sport, even if this 50 euro aid for enrollment in a sports facility, established since 2021, is struggling to take its development and that the budget dedicated to it has been far from being used up in the last two years.

This system, which aims to ensure that the cost of practicing sport does not constitute an obstacle for young people from low-income families, and is therefore part of the President of the Republic’s project to make sport a “Great National Cause”will be renewed for the year 2024.

In a budget of the Ministry of Sport and of the JOP, which according to the latter should increase by a few tens of million euros (excluding the funding of the JOP, which will drop to 100 million euros, against 300 million in 2023), the funding linked to the Pass’Sport should remain constant: it was 100 million euros in 2022 and 2023 (although in 2022 just over 63 million had been spent).

The question of increasing the amount of aid, which has been raised, has not yet been decided. No more than that of a further extension of the Pass’Sport scope of application.

“The rate of appeals remains insufficient”

In the immediate future, the efforts of the ministry, which assures that it has not given up on being ambitious for this device, are concentrated on the start of the 2023 school year, with the aim of seeing a greater number of potential beneficiaries subscribe to the device. “The appeal rate remains insufficient. Our goal is to increase it”, the minister, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, had declared in mid-May before the deputies. Between 1um As of 31 June and 31 December, the goal is to reach 1.8 million Pass’Sport activated, compared to just over 1.22 million in 2022, and just over 1.03 million in 2021.

The potential “target” is 6.7 million young people between the ages of 6 and 30: they are the beneficiaries of the return to school (ARS)school allowance for disabled children (AEEH)disabled adult allowance (YYYY)or fellows.

At the end of May and beginning of June, a communication campaign on the device was launched in conjunction with the licensing campaign, which is being prepared in August at the sports federations. To get as many clubs and beneficiaries as possible, the Ministry of Sports and the Olympic Games relied on the National Olympic and Sports Committee. A first meeting was held in early July. Others should follow on a weekly basis.

Better promotion must also be ensured among the 760,000 fellows: these, eligible for the first time in 2022, have made very little use of the system, only 23,000. For this start of the 2023 school year, the possibilities of using the Pass’Sport have also been extended: it will be usable in private sports establishments throughout France as well as in all recognized youth and popular education associations, not affiliated with a sport recognized federation. .

The rest under discussion

Furthermore, for the year 2024, discussions are ongoing on the ergonomics of the system, the scope of beneficiaries and the amount of aid. Before the deputies, on 16 May, MMyself Oudéa-Castéra had declared it“It would be great if families had an overview on one interface”including the procedures relating to the Pass’Sport e “information on further aid granted by local authorities and on existing clubs in the vicinity, also for people with disabilities”.

As for the amount of the lump sum, its increase “could make it possible to better meet the needs of low-income families”, had anticipated the deputy (Renaissance) Benjamin Dirx, presenting, on May 16, a report on the mission of sport, youth and associative life on behalf of the commission for the evaluation of public policies.

“The amount of this benefit and its calibration are matters”had admitted, on this occasion, MMyself Oudea-Castera. He recalled that a study carried out with the National Institute for Youth and Popular Education showed that 30% of families who do not register for Pass’Sport encounter an economic obstacle and that among those who use the system , 25% declare a residual amount of more than 160 euros. “In view of the budget for 2024, we need to really reflect on the residual charge”she added. We confirm to the ministry that we want to try to reduce the latter for people who have greater economic difficulties.
