Intervention project in Years 1 to 4
Sports practice helped children all over the country to improve their motor skills in three months.

As part of the strategic plan for football 2030, the FPF has developed an intervention programme for children and has already tested it in 44 primary schools in the country during the first three months of 2023. The aim was to develop general and specific motor skills with and without ball handling in order to facilitate the more complex future acquisitions required in the practice of pre-sporting games* and collective sports games. The study below presents the results of this project.

Even as the country with the lowest practice of physical activity in the European Union, the conclusions of the work include the improvement in motor skills in all the groups involved and the satisfaction of the parents with the project, even advising the continuity and extension to all Portuguese schools.
