How to apply the SCforH approach?

Given there are many types of sports clubs across Europe, this book of guidelines was written in a general manner so that the SCforH approach could be tailored to meet the needs of various clubs in various contexts. The main principles of the SCforH approach and the model that can be used to apply it in practice are described below. Further practical examples of how to adopt the SCforH approach can be found on the SCforH webpage (see Electronic Toolkit, Area 1, e.g., “Gymnastics school/ Finnish Gymnastics Federation”).

The SCforH approach is based on seven guiding principles (Figure 4). These principles form the basis of the SCforH approach and its associated practical initiatives.
