Progetto Scuola: School project



The school project aims to initiate young people to the theoretical and practical knowledge of TSG both for the conservation of traditional disciplines so that they are handed down to the new generations. A second goal is to start training athletes who will be able to participate in the youth championships in the future.
The FIGeST territorial committees annually elaborate a project where they send federal technicians toelementary and middle schools for introducing children to TSGs. The activity ends with a final event with all the children involved.

Target group(s)
  • Children (3-12)
  • Youth (13-18)
  • Health and Well-being
  • Increase sport participation
  • Social Inclusion
Type(s) of initiative
  • Non-Competitive Sport for All


The 6 main goals of the programme are:

  • Spreading traditional games and sports (from the most ancient to the most modern forms) starting from compulsory school.
  • Sensitize teachers to the activities of the TSGs intended not only as sports but also as a learning tool for the cultivation of the historical memory of our territory.
  • Create a spirit of collaboration between the various disciplinary setc.ors of the province to be transmitted to the children of the schools involved.
  • Promote school events with the involvement of local authorities.
  • Promote a final figest event to involve both schools participating in the initiative and others interested in joining in the future.
  • Evaluate the presence of any gifted and interested young people in continuing the GST activity in order to enrich the youth park of the province’s members.

Success Factors
& Achievements

  1. Responsible sport experiences: sport has great social relevance as well as educational and training in mutual respetc.. The very young are enthusiastic when they participate in our activities because they see a new world opening up with different sports from the usual ones.
  2. Physical and psychological well-being: the panorama of TSG offers ample opportunities for involvement and aggregation for both young and old.
  3. Respect for the environment: all TSGs can be practiced outdoors, in contact with nature, favoring the development of civic sense while respecting what surrounds us.
  4. To bring the generations together through the dual concept of TSG as an ancient game and a more competitive sporting practice.
  5. Distract young people from the immobility and isolation caused by technology and restore manual skills through our games.
  6. Prevent abandonment: the child must “play sport” not practice it with exasperation.
