Next to international scientific articles and more practical articles the program also will result in specific interventions, a handbook for sport coaches and will become visible in presentations, workshops and new alliances. Here follows first a short list with preliminary results. After that a few relevant publications are listed.


  • In the journal LO (9) of the KVLO an article by Elise Casteren is posted. This article is the first in a series of three on implicit and explicit teaching methods in physical education.
