IMPACTS is a European project aiming to Inspire and Motivate Physically disabled Athletes to enter into Coaching and Training careers in Sports.
IMPACTS provides stepping stones to mainstream disabled athletes into coaching and training positions. The image of disabled athletes and coaches improves via empowering disabled athletes. In IMPACTS courses are developed to improve career opportunities in sport coaching for disabled athletes: education and training institutions and sporting organisations will be connected for piloting.
IMPACTS will share best practices and experiences in sports coaching and training methodologies for disabled athletes. Disabled athletes will be promoted and supported as positive role models to increase the participation of disabled people in sport.
