The last in line to be presented of the local activities that partners implemented during Eurpoean Week of Sport this year, is a sports celebration that happened on 26th September in Bari, Italy.
The event took place thanks to the collaboration between ASD APS Margherita Sport (MSV) e Vita and ASD Pink Sport Time (sports association which runs PalaCarrassi sports facility) and its trainers.
Almost 80 young people joined the event during which the goal achieved by MSV was officialized: the #HealthyLifeStyle4All pledge acknowledged by the EU Commission. MSV got this great result thanks to its campaign “Nobody excluded for healthy lifestyles through sport” that aims to attract and engage young people to practice sport by using the “basket music” practice, designed to promote multifactorial activities. This methodology combines basket, music, rythm and develops coordination and self-confidence skills. The methodology was carried out in order to face the autism phenomenon – for this purpose, it is fundamental the selection of music, exercises and timing.
During the day, other different sports were shown and practiced by the young athletes: dance, hip hop, taekwondo, multisport, and basketball. MSV had the occasion to demonstrate, as well, some excercises of basketmusic.
All the activities were focused on the following main topics: inclusion, young people, healthy lifestyle, equality.
