2016 European Week of Sport and Physical Activity will be celebrated across Ireland from 10-18 September 2016.

The European Week of Sport takes place between the 10-18 September and aims to promote sport and physical activity across Europe. The Week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. With a focus on grassroots initiatives, it will inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and create opportunities in peoples’ everyday lives to exercise more. As an annual event, the European Week of Sport will inspire all kinds of creative and exciting events and activities in different countries.

We now invite all Clubs to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to

  • Promote your Sport
  • Organise and register open events during the week and
  • Spread the #BeActive message

Currently they are nearly 200 events registered nationwide and these are now displayed on the sports Ireland http://www.irishsportscouncil.ie/European-Week-of-Sport/Register-Your-Event/

There are a number of flagships events happening that may be of interest:

  • The #BeActive Schools Campaign has a full programme of events for schools across Ireland during the week. Of particular interest may be ‘Try it Tuesday’ where local clubs will be invited in to provide taster sessions in schools.
  • National Fitness Day will be on 16th September and there will be over 100 gyms, leisure centres and activity centres nationwide providing events on the day.

There are still lots of time left to register events all of which should be participation focused and ideally free of charge. Coaching, education and training events can also be registered for the week.

Sport Ireland who are the official Irish Coordinator for this EU Initiative  are also encouraging local clubs to notify their Local Sport Partnership about events being planned in every county to maximise participation.
