IMPACTS Project: to Inspire and Motivate Physically disabled Athletes to enter into Coaching and Training careers in Sports;
- A two year (2016-2017) Collaborative Partnerships project co-funded under the Erasmus+ programme, intending to provide stepping stones to mainstream disabled athletes into coaching and training positions.
- The image of diabled athletes and courses improves via empowering disabled athletes.
- IMPACTS project found out that there should be more awareness and knowledge of the possibilities disabled athletes have in sport coaching and training. There is a lack of good access to sports accommodations.
- The most important thing the IMPACTS project found out that all education and courses to become a trainer/coach are focused on Technique and Tactique of the sport, but not on soft skills of "Coaching".
- IMPACTS collected "best practice" of several coaches, developed a pilot based on those "best practice" and wrote a report and an article of the results. All collected in a handbook, which is available digital.
- Six participating partners of five countries (CSC-Italy, MEH-UK, HU-Turkey, SPON-Poland, SPGN-Netherlands and Euricon-Netherlands) worked together on this project.
