CONTEXT & NEEDS

On the international scene, Italy had been at the forefront of education in the 1970s for people with disabilities, going beyond the Special Schools model and inaugurating the one of Inclusive Schools which is now spreading to European level and world level. But today, the challenge is to avoid keeping the INCLUSIVE CULTURE & PRAXIS inside school system, by extending this new cultural norm in the whole society, in SPORT sector too. Among the current scattered successful
experimentations, the Italian case of BASKIN is one of the greatest expression of this INCLUSIVE
SPORT model, as recognized by Design For All Foundation, Italian Education Ministery, Italian
Paralympic Committee, but also by various European Universities.

PURPOSE & OBJECTIVES

This project fits into the general purpose of going beyond the Special Sports model thanks to the development of an INCLUSIVE SPORT CULTURE in Europe: Not only OLYMPIC GAMES for able-bodied and PARALYMPIC GAMES for disabled, … but also “ALL’YMPIC GAMES” for all!
This is a cultural challenge, but at the same time straightly connected to the effective
possibility to experience concrete good practices.
That’s why the specific objective of this project is, taking advantage of BASKIN as a CONCRETE MODEL of inclusive sport, to reinforce a EUROPEAN NETWORK* focused on the development of a BASKIN’S ACADEMY and its multiplying effect on local communities in cultural and operational terms.

GENERAL PROJECT IDEA

The strategic working plan, based on training engineering, is to involve actively the partners in
sharing training methodologies to form new Baskin coaches, referees, officials but also PE teachers. The project design plans on one side to take advantage from the longer experience of Italy and on the other side to enrich it with the particular working context of the partners.

The main focus of the project is to support TRAINING ACTIVITIES at 2 levels:

a) 1st level: organizing 1 national training course for aspiring Coaches & Referees in each of the 5 countries (FR, GR, SP, LU, DE)

b) 2nd level: organizing 1 international training course for aspiring Trainers of coaches & referees through 2 meetings in Italy (reserved to 3 persons per country) + 1 kick-off meeting in Italy

CLARIFYING TERMINOLOGY:

BASKIN COACHES
“Baskin Coaches” means the technical staff in charge of driving the Baskin sessions every week and also the matches. Usually, there is the head coach and several assistant coaches, but they can all be considered “Baskin coaches”… Actually, they should be all Baskin coaches (having received the specific official training to become a Baskin coach).
In each country (Greece, France, Spain…), there should be as many Baskin coaches as possible in a certain way… because they are those who create new Baskin teams and develop Baskin practice, thus allowing more people to access to this inclusive sport opportunity.

BASKIN TRAINERS
Should we use the term of “FORMATORS” (to avoid misunderstanding)?
Anyway, here “Baskin Trainers” means the very elected people (technically and culturally prepared) in charge of organizing training events for new potential Baskin coaches (& referees).
Thanks to this european project, each country (Greece, France…) should go slowly towards a kind of autonomy in terms of training, to not be always dependent on Italy until 2050… 😉
There should not be many “Baskin Trainers” but only few in a first period (1, 2 or 3 per country in this project).
This European project would allow each country to form/train these new national trainers (that would remain initially under the supervision of and collaboration with italian trainers, but that would become more autonomous in 2 years, at the end of the project).

NB: A first KICK-OFF MEETING will be organized in Italy at the beginning. After, there will be 2 MEETINGS IN ITALY (not 3).

ECONOMICAL CONDITIONS

The partners won’t have any cost.

The main advantage of the project is to support economically a real need.

The budget would allow each partner to participate in a totally free way, as all the costs would be covered, especially those regarding:

1) management and implementation of the project (during 18 months)

2) travel expenses of the aspiring trainers coming to Italy 2 times (4 days each) until a maximum of 500€ per meeting (duly justified: transport, accomodation and food).
