Sport+4All project partners gathered at Astangu

14. January 2016

On January 13-14 Astangu hosted 17 specialists working with the topic of sport and special needs from Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Northern-Ireland, Portugal and Spain. Read more from below.

The project workshop concentrated on strengthening the partnership and sharing experiences from sport-related initiatives that have been started in each centre. The project partners also had the opportunity to acquire practical experience from trying out wheelchair curling under the supervision of the Estonian Wheelchair Curling Team.

At Astangu VRC, a physical activity group "Astangu power" has been initiated thanks to the project. Astangu power brings together youngsters with disabilities to regularly practice a healthy and moving lifestyle. This includes weekly trainings (trying out different ways of exercising individually and in a group setting) at Astangu and outside in mainstream environments.

The aim of Sport+4All project is to create tools that will support more diverse and higher quality of sport on offer at European level for PwD. To achieve this aim the project will involve rehabilitation centres, sport centres and facilities. More information at: http://www.sportplus4all.eu/

The next project meeting will take place in April in Belfast, Northern-Ireland.
