Think tank Sport et Citoyenneté

56% of European citizens with a disability say that they never do regular physical activity. This is a paradox in view of the many studies showing that sport is one of the most effective ways of encouraging inclusion.

One of the challenges concerns the training of sports and physical activity instructors and coaches. Technical and teaching knowledge need to be adapted to take into account disabled sport practice and persons with a disability.

This observation led the Sport and Citizenship Think Tank to bring together a European working group on this subject. This work is the result of three years of discussions. It provides various points for consideration on the development of an appropriate training course which will help support and integrate persons with a disability.
