The CUC, a reference in the motor development of the child.

For three days, from September 28 to 30 at the Hôtel de Région, conferences and round tables on the theme of “health sports” will be offered to club leaders, players in the sports sectors, health professionals and students.

Lhe Clermont Université Club celebrates its 100th anniversary this year and is doing things big. Organized into club federations, the CUC includes 12 disciplines: aikido, athletics, badminton, basketball, climbing, judo, rugby, tennis, Yoseikan budo, skiing, volleyball and small last: roller skating, in the making.

It is also a sports-oriented leisure centre, stemming from a multi-sports school created in 1985.

This club therefore knows very well the importance of sport, its physical, mental and social benefits.

From Wednesday September 28 to Friday September 30, the CUC organizes the Summer Sports University of the UNCU (National Union of French University Clubs) at the Hôtel de Région with three days of conferences, debates and workshops on the theme: ” sport-health, an opportunity for sports clubs? »

This event is organized in collaboration with ONAPS, the French Observatory of Physical Activity and Sedentariness. All local authorities will be highlighted.


Sport-health has become everyone’s business, whether children, adults or retirees.

“We worked with Martine Duclos, head of the sports medicine department at the University Hospital and David Thivel, lecturer, specialist in nutritional adaptations to physical exercise in adolescents,” explains Vice-President Thierry Olivier. Thus, we can make the link between our practice of healthy sport and family sport or nutrition. We hope that it will not only be an intellectual laboratory but also a sports practice one. We did not limit ourselves to university sport but also to corporate sport.«

The need is strong because the practice of sport among children has fallen from year to year…

“In the evolution of the clubs, this notion has become of public utility explains Thierry Olivier, the vice-president of the CUC. The decline in physical activity is a disaster. Society needs to get people moving.“

The figures are chilling: 70 to 75% of women in France are sedentary and in 40 years, a seven-year-old child has lost a quarter of his heart capacity.

Screen time and a sedentary lifestyle have an impact on weight gain and general health, such as sleep.

Like energy, sport-health must be one of the priorities for the years to come. In Clermont-Ferrand, ASM Omnisports with ASM Vitalité and Pauses actives is already a driving force in this area and will participate in debates such as Vitalité A3P and CPAM 63.

During 3 days, conferences, debates and round tables around the theme: Sport-Health in France and in Europe, will be offered to club leaders, players in the sports sectors, students, APAS teachers, health professionals, elected officials, health and sports referents of institutions and communities…

“Physical activity, inactivity, sedentary lifestyle… What are we talking about?” will be led by Martine Duclos. The history of Sport-Health, its impact on society, the French and European cases, the excesses of the practice: the other side of the coin… These are the themes that will be discussed and explained. Several workshops are planned: Sport on prescription, Maisons Sport-Santé, Sport-Health in the workplace and Sport-Health and childhood. These three days of debates should allow everyone, doctors, leaders, educators to draw the best from the studies and experiences of each in order to move things forward, even more in depth.

It is an event of national dimension entrusted by the UNCU (National Union of French University Clubs) to the CUC omnisports, the bearer of this torch of Sport-Health.
