The vision for Dublin City Council is to Create a brighter future through Sport for young people aged 10 to 21 years in Dublin City.

In August 2002 Dublin City Council recruited a team of five Sports Development Officers with funding made available through the Young Peoples and Facilities and Service fund. Currently in 2014 the Sports Development Team consists of Two Senior Sports Development Officers, Ten Sports Development Officers and two Assistant Sports Development Officers.

The Mission of Dublin City Council Sports Development Officers is to use Sports as an effective tool to engage young people at risk in designated disadvantage areas into sustainable sports, active recreation and facilities at a level that they desire.
