KidMove - Athlete-centered coaching practices (2019-2020) is an international project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Sport Programme of the European Union.In KidMove-project we collect and co-create good athlete-centered coaching practices, especially for junior coaching on the grassroot level. Adults behind the sporting activity should not lose sight of the fact that children play for enjoyment. The atmosphere, having fun, meeting friends and getting good feelings, learning new skills, staying healthy, getting a sense of belonging and support are very important reasons for young athletes to participate in sporting activities.
to show what makes a coaching practice good
to combine the know-how of coaches with the thoughts of young athletes, the pedagogy and background theory

Blogs & tutorials reflect and communicate the athlete-centered coaching practices in practice and will help to share the knowledge to coaches, young athletes, other sports clubs and organizations, and families.
