PROJECT INFORMATION

Title Sports and physical activities for young children (preschoolers)
Topics Protect athletes, especially the youngest, from health and safety hazards by improving training and competition conditions

Promote education in and through sport with special focus on skills development

Summary Sport is more and more encouraged at young ages. Even for pre-schoolers. However, regarding sport for the youngest children, we lack information about its organisation and impact, namely on children’s health, on individual, social and talent development, and on personal experiences. What can we learn from European countries?
