Welcome at the website of the program Participation in sports!

This site has been launched on December 12th 2013 and will provide a platform to share information and developments regarding the Dutch four-year research program ‘participation with a movement restriction: towards tailor-made training and coaching’ (2013-2017). The ambition of this program is to improve the sports climate for children with a motor restriction in order to enhance their participation.


  • Due to the high demand for an English version of our manual, we have had it translated. The English version can be downloaded here.
  • To keep the gym teachers involved in our project informed about our research, we have prepared a newsletter. Curious about the content? Here you will find newsletter number 1 and number 2 (in dutch)
  • The new version of our manual is ready. It has become a handbook full of activities and mediacards that are also suitable for the children themselves. The handbook is the basis for the mediacards. These are cards with illustrations of the movements that the children can use as an example and reminder of what they have to do. Our goal is to use this manual and the media cards to increase the movement possibilities of these children so that they can participate better during gym classes, sports games and sports training. If you want more information about the manual, please contact us by sending an email to info@meedoenmetsport.nl.
