The TAFISA Reach Out program, developed with the support of the IOC, aims to build awareness, cooperation and strategic development of local and national Sport for All movements, particularly less developed countries. The program will create synergy between governors and practitioners of Sport for All delivery, to enable communities and citizens around the world to benefit from the myriad benefits that Sport for All can bring.

Developing Local and National Sport for All Movements Globally

The TAFISA Reach Out program was developed in response to member demand for support in developing the Sport for All movements in their cities and countries. Many members who have participated in the TAFISA CLC program requested such a course, and TAFISA listened carefully to what was being asked when developing the Reach Out concept.

The TAFISA Reach Out Program is open to all TAFISA members and NOCs. To host TAFISA Reach Out program in your country, please complete and return the application form linked below.
