THE Provincial Sports Games are the driving force for encouraging the region’s youngsters to practice sport, according to the Diputacion de Almeria, which has now unveiled details of the 2019/2020 programme.
“There is no other programme which moves so many sportspeople in so many municipalities”, commented provincial government president Javier A. Garcia at the initiative presentation earlier this week.
“We are working to bring a sports base to the whole province, and this programme has as an added value essential values in sport, like team spirit, solidarity, strength and teamwork”, he continued, maintaining the games bring together sport, education, health and fun.
The Diputacion president also talked about what he said was his administration’s aim to make sport available for all the province’s boys and girls.
“This year we have as a novelty expanded the multi-sport promotion education workshops to the smallest municipalities in order to give the children of these villages the same opportunities”, Garcia revealed, saying this was another example of a policy aimed at preventing depopulation from inland rural areas.
Sports Deputy Maria Luisa Cruz explained this year’s sports games programme gave provincial kids the opportunity of taking part in approximately 350 basketball matches, 180 volleyball and a dozen multi-sport meetings, which she said would mean the participation of close to 20,000 children across the province overall.
