During this period, more than 7,500 students will learn about 18 sports modalities that may be new to them through the ‘Know my sport’ initiative, which this year includes acrosport sessions, chess, sailing, motor racing, mountain races, climbing, judo, etc. swimming, orientation, triathlon, archery or tennis, among others.
The main objective of the sports program is to promote healthy lifestyle habits, in addition to acquiring the basic skills and abilities in the sports modalities in which it is developed. The competition factor is one more means to motivate the participants and not an end in itself, reports the Board in a press release.
This year’s Proades call has exceeded initial expectations, with places for some modalities exhausted in a few hours. For this reason, in several disciplines waiting lists have been created to be able to access the activity if there are cancellations.
Proades 2021 will reach more than 100 localities in the region distributed throughout all the Extremadura regions, which shows the will of the General Directorate of Sports to promote equal opportunities in access to sports, especially in rural areas when it comes to of early ages. In fact, the students of a dozen rural centers grouped together, will be able to enjoy this initiative.
The Program for the Promotion and Assistance to School Sports of the Junta de Extremadura reaffirms the commitment of the regional government to offer training and leisure alternatives to face the demographic challenge.
