Project Description

The sportGO project focuses on the priority of supporting the implementation of EU policy documents in the field of sport and other relevant policy areas such as recommendations, guidelines, policy strategies, etc. (e.g. EU Physical Activity Guidelines, EU Guidelines on Dual Careers of Athletes, Principles on good governance in sport, etc).

The sportGO objectives are:
-improving available structures and implementation of cost-efficient governance of semi-professional and amateur sport clubs
-fostering grassroots sport activities by supporting semi-professional and amateur sport clubs in governance and enabling good conditions for their active members
-strengthening the national and regional sports governing bodies by increasing their training offers to their members and their capacity in training representatives of sport clubs
-exchanging and transfer of knowledge and knowhow related to governance and management of sport clubs from higher education institutions and training providers to sports clubs and vice versa
-on a meta-level developing social capital of youth in “healthy” sport clubs engaged in youth training.
