Sports Club for Health 2020-22 project successfully launched

An international project entitled Creating Mechanisms for Continuous Implementation of the Sports Club for Health Guidelines in the European Union (SCforH 2020-22) has been launched at a kick-off meeting held on the 7th of February in Zagreb, Croatia.

This 3-year project is funded by a European Union Erasmus+ Collaborative Partnerships grant of 398.845 Euro, and it includes 17 partner institutions from 13 countries. The project is led by the University of Zagreb Faculty of Kinesiology.

The overarching aim of the project is to increase the participation in sports and physical activity in the European Union, by encouraging sports clubs and associations to implement Sports Club for Health principles in their activities.

This ongoing European initiative has started in 2008, and it has since received three consecutive grants from the European Union. It is the largest European initiative for the promotion of health through sports clubs.
