My eldest just isn't interested in any sports activities and it's very hard to find other non sport activities.

As others have suggested scouts can be great, or you might have a youth club local to you he could join.
What is a coder dojo? Ive not heard of that one before.☺️

I don't mean one of those play bounce places, where people bounce across a series of trampolines (until they break a leg or something), I mean proper fixed trampolines, like what you see at the Olympics etc.

Your local leisure centre is the most likely venue.

My girls do both Brownies and Cubs. Theyve done them since they were old enough to start Beavers/Rainbows.

Theyve no interest in dance, gymnastics or anything else so Scouting/Guiding is where we landed and weve no regrets.

Last weekend they were on Brownie camp and next weekend its Cub Camp. They have a Brownie fun day coming up and a Cub archery competition. They would not be as active without these organisations nor exposed to so many opportunities or ability to learn new skills.

They have bikes, scooters and enjoy swimming but these things are very much for fun, which is fab, but Scouting and Guiding is helping us mould then into very well rounded individuals.

Way back when my DS18 (today!) was that age he wanted to give up swimming to basically pay on some forms of electronic game. The only way I would let him was if he picked another activity to start before I let him stop swimming. Seven years down the road and he is a black belt in Karate and goes to competitions - I do believe if I had let him stop without something else already in place he never would have chosen something. I hope your son finds something he really enjoys

My DS does Scouts and has been a beaver and a cub. While he doesn't do outdoor camping he loves everything else. They get to do such a variety of stuff. I think the Scouts participation in the local community is great. I'm always so proud when they participate in Remembrance Parade.
He's not sporty at all. He has swimming lessons on a Saturday but he's going into a lull. He's just been moved up a group so hopefully the new lifeguarding techniques will spark enthusiasm.
I had said if he gives up swimming he will need to do another physical activity instead.
He plays chess and scrabble after school.
As much as Fortnite gets some knocks playing it after starting secondary has made him come out of his shell and he's now got a nice little group of friends at school

I wish my son wanted to do a fifth of that!
