What is the goal?

The aim of the KidMove-project is to prevent and reduce the dropout of the 11-15 years-old children from sporting activities. The project’s purpose is to identify, co-create and disseminate athlete-centered coaching practices.  The project uses co-creation methods by combining the practical knowledge from coaches and views of young athletes, coaches, families and sports clubs with evidence found from the literature. The project cooperates internationally with actors from sports clubs and organizations, and higher education institutions with multidisciplinary expertise from physiotherapy, podiatry, sport education and psychomotoricity.

Results:

The project produces concrete materials about athlete-centered coaching practices for the grassroots sports coaches of young athletes. The athlete-centered coaching practices enhance 1) joy, motivation and empowerment of young athletes, 2) safe sports to prevent sport-related injuries.
