Notts Sport welcomed last months’ announcement that each of the 4,000 secondary schools would be offered finance to set up a club as part of the five-year project.
Chairman Shaun Patrick said the move was a positive step towards encouraging young people to take up sport and continue playing throughout their lives.
"If young people have access to first-class facilities and coaching throughout their crucial teenage years, sport is more likely to become a lifelong lifestyle choice.
"We cannot let the challenging economic climate stand in the way of young people getting access to the sports facilities."
For this reason, he said, Notts Sport had introduced Fast Track Funding, to further help schools press ahead with artificial multiuse or sports surfaces with "little or no upfront cost", said Patrick.
Instead of spending months applying for grants, Notts Sport would offer up-front funding. Repayments could be spread over an agreed period and paid when grant money started to roll in.
Culture and Olympics secretary Jeremy Hunt said at the launch: "Despite investment since we won the bid for the Games participation by young people in sport has fallen.
"We need a radical change in policy to address the deep-seated problem of people dropping out of sport when they leave school."
