On August 21st, 2018, the Rijeka Sports Association for Persons with Disabilities has held a dissemination of the project ‘Sports training for all’ – ST4ALL, or, more precisely, the children from the inclusive schools in Rijeka, their families and trainers were presented with the following sporting activities: inclusive programmes of swimming, darts, hanging bowling alley and chess.
By making this presentation of the sporting activities as part of the project ‘Sports training for all’ – ST4ALL, members of families that took part are encouraged to undertake sporting activities outside of their children’s school, and are encouraged to accept the abilities of their children – especially children with developmental difficulties.
Bearing in mind that more and more pupils and students with disabilities are being included into educational institutions and organizations of young people without disabilities and are getting into the sporting activities, the professors and trainers are dealing with the problem of insufficient education regarding inclusive sports. The goal of the project ‘Sports training for all’ – ST4ALL is, therefore, to educate professors and trainers about organizing inclusive sporting activities. It is considered that it is precisely these types of activities that could be crucial for the inclusion into the community at large.
Eight partners are taking part in the project ‘Sports training for all’ – ST4ALL, coming from these countries: Bulgaria, Turkey, Belgium and Austria and Croatia. The main partner of the project is the University of Plovdiv, Paisii Hilendarski from Bulgaria, while Croatia is represented by the Rijeka Sports Association for Persons with Disabilities.
The budget of the project ‘Sports training for all’ – ST4ALL is 355 643 euros, and is co-financed by the EU through the programme Erasmus + Sport – Collaborative Partnership. The period for costs permissibility lasts from January 1st, 2018 until June 30th, 2020.
