After several years of development work, the results of a project unique in Europe, coordinated by the Austrian Football Association and involving Austria’s three general sports governing bodies as well as five other national ball sport associations, were unveiled in time for the start of the new academic year.
In cooperation with Ballschule Heidelberg, the project partners have designed a free app that uses professional video-based training guides to help teachers, coaches and parents plan and devise physical workouts for children in a creative way. The app contains a total of 186 exercises that are relevant to all ball sports and also available offline.
The initiative aims to provide boys and girls aged between 3 and 10 with a broad basic education in different ball sports, in the hope that they will discover the joy that physical exercise and team sport can give them as they grow older.
