Aim of the project

This platform is developed within the EU-supported project “Family Friendly Sports”, which has the aim of creating a sustainable ecosystem for the development and growth of family-friendly sports aimed at children’s health enhancement and social inclusion.

FFS is connecting generations

One of the goals of the project is to enable the creation of sports-based activities and methodologies that will ensure transgenerational dialogue between family members and their active participation in sports.

FFS is promoting active and healthy lifestyles

Sports play one of the key roles in the proper development of children, but also in keeping adults mentally and physically healthy and fit.

FFS is building the capacities of sports clubs

Our innovative FFS Guidelines and FFS Label are designed to enable sports clubs to introduce a family-friendly sports approach in their daily work and make their activities more engaging, attractive, and inclusive.

Importance of FFS
