Sport is fun, sport is exciting, sport brings people together. The European Commission  recognises sport and physical activity as powerful tools for breaking barriers and building a more inclusive world. This year, the European Commission will once again present the #BeInclusive awards, celebrating the work of organisations that have harnessed the power of sport to increase social inclusion for disadvantaged groups.

The #BeInclusive Awards were created to help build an inclusive, united society through sport. Your organisation may be working with ethnic minorities, refugees and irregular migrants, people with disabilities, youth groups at-risk or other groups facing challenging circumstances. Let us know how your organisation is using sport to empower and integrate disadvantaged groups.

Entries will be open for the #BeInclusive Awards 2020 from April 14 to June 30. Applications are open to any organisation implementing a project organisation that focuses on social inclusion – public, private, commercial or not-for-profit.

The awards ceremony

The three winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony in December 2020 in Brussels, where they will also have the opportunity to present their projects to an audience of sport inclusion experts – and receive a €10,000 prize!

Showcasing the work of wonderful organisations such as these can promote innovative ideas – and inspire others to build a more inclusive world. This is a unique opportunity to celebrate your organisation’s work – and to take your project to the next level.

ONSIDE partners kick off final year of the project with productive meeting in Birmingham

sportmt January 29, 2020 0

Partners in the ONSIDE project made a flying start to 2020 with the 6th full partner meeting taking place in Birmingham, UK, on 8th and 9th of January, hosted by Sports Officials UK.
One of the key outputs of the project will be a brand new set of occupational standards for the role of sport official and day 1 of the meeting was dedicated to detailed discussions around the skills and competences of sport officials, looking at generic competences that apply to all levels and all sports.
The standards will be presented under four main headings, known as Key Roles:
A – Personal Competency Development

B – Relationships

C – Competition

D – Information

Consultation on the standards will take place in February/ March 2020 and interested stakeholders should contact the project team or any of the partners to view the standards and take part in the consultation.

On day 2 attention turned to the educational outputs of the project and package leaders Sports Officials UK led discussion of the Training Module Handbook and e learning which will be developed for the project. Topics earmarked for e learning modules include communication, conflict management, observation and decision making, honesty ethics and fair plan and team work.

Educational outputs will be tested with sport officials at two test events to take place in the UK and Malta in June and September 2020.
Planning for the final conference for the ONSIDE project was also progressed towards an event for the sports officiating sector to be organised in November 2020.

At the meeting the strong connection with the International Federation for Sports Officials (IFSO) was cemented further and indeed the final conference of ONSIDE will be organised as a joint ONSIDE/ IFSO Congress.

The partners found the meeting productive and also enjoyed their time in Birmingham, particularly the dinner boat cruise on the Birmingham canal system organised for the evening between the two meeting days. The next meeting will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria in May 2020.

Janie Frampton from Sports Officials UK said “This was a very valuable meeting to progress the two areas of standards and education, there is a lot to achieve in 2020 but we have got off to the best possible start with this partner meeting in Birmingham”.

Thousands join President’s Solidarity Fun Run

sportmt January 27, 2020 0

Thousands of people made the best use of a sunny Sunday and donned their t-shirts to take part in the 11th edition of the Solidarity Fun Run.

Originally planned to be held in November, the run had been postponed because of bad weather.

President George Vella led the walk from the University of Malta and several MPs from both sides of the house.

Mrs Vella walked from Santa Venera while Prime Minister Robert Abela and Mrs Lydia Abela ran from Rabat. Many others walked from Paola.

The four routes met in Blata l-Bajda and headed on to Valletta through Republic Street to St George’s Square.

The President thanked the people for their generosity and participation.

The 12th edition of the run is planned to be held in October.
