Sports Club for Health 2020-22 project: progress update

The project Creating Mechanisms for Continuous Implementation of the Sports Club for Health Guidelines in the European Union is funded by a European Union Erasmus+ Collaborative Partnerships grant of 398.845 Euro, and it includes 17 partner institutions from 13 countries. The overarching aim of the project is to increase participation in sport and physical activity in the European Union by encouraging sports clubs and associations to implement Sport Clubs for Health principles in their activities.

The international project team has developed an interactive online course with practical recommendations that may help you improve the availability and quality of health-enhancing sports activities within your sports club, sports association, or community. The course is free of charge and available in 25 languages. Since its launch nine months ago, the course was attended by nearly 2000 participants from across Europe.

 

Practical recommendations for adopting and using the Sports Club for Health approach have recently been summarised in a textbook. Last November, the project team also organised a symposium for sports clubs and associations that was attended by 116 participants.

 

Currently under development are: (1) Sports Club for Health Country Cards, with data on the current state of health-enhancing sports promotion in 36 European countries; (2) a database of European Sports Club for Health initiatives; and (3) a new symposium. Watch this space…
