Train the trainers in Prato: let’s start!

During the months of November and December in Prato at the sports center of Mezzana managed by the CGFS, meetings were held for the training of teachers qualified to do the NOVIS project.
The course, with teachers Monica Casalini and Martino Angelini, was developed in four mornings and saw the presence of 11 sports educators and coaches of the CGFS, 3 of the Club Scherma Lucca T.B.B. and 1 of the ASD Montemurlo Basketball.
The objective is to transmit the skills learned in the meeting in Bucharest and transfer them enriched with new elements. This is to make possible the interventions of NOVIS not only in schools but also in gyms, playgrounds and swimming pools.
The days have received a positive interest and it is believed that the 15 participants are able to give life to their e-camps in schools and in their sports clubs.
