Come and Sport with Us - a Project of Czech Union of Sport
„Come and sport with us” is a project of Czech Union of Sport, and it is the largest sport project in the Czech Republic. In 2017, under its heading, nearly 600 sports events will be held for all ages, for children, adults and the elderly. In the past year, more than 200.000 people took part in the project and more than half of them were under 18 years of age.
The purpose of the project is to motivate the public to engage in numerous, varied and attractive sports activities, both in recreational and competitive forms, and to show that sport is fun, beneficial, instructive and attractive to all age groups with undeniable benefits for the physical and mental health. Another aim of the project is to highlight and support the work of the volunteer organisers and coaches without whom sport and physical activity could not exist.
The „Come and sport with us” project includes a wide range of sports events across the Czech Republic. The Czech Union of Sport selects events that go through a demanding selection screening with a range of criteria, including the target group and the amount of participants, its prestige, tradition, organisational provision and public involvement.
