Training Course

Sports is a very attractive activity for many young people. It is fun to do, brings you together with friends and is healthy for your body and spirit. Sports is not only about winning of competition. Sports can bring people together and help individuals to learn.


In the SOAP II training, we will explore the power of sports, the possibilities it brings to attract young people and learn to use it as an educational tool. We will use the extraordinary setting and landscape of the Troodos region of Cyprus to merge outdoor learning with the power of sports.

• Form new networks: to bring sport organisations from European countries together and to increase co-operation with experienced youth organisations
• Make use of the power of sports: to use sport as an educational tool in international youth projects
