Artistic Gymnastics stands for the art of movement and fascinates young and old people. Movement forms of all kinds are very important for children.
The European Artistic Gymnastics Championships Basel 2021 provide lasting impulses in the promotion of movement and want to make gymnastics an experience for the youngest as well. For this reason, we are launching a two-part school project in collaboration with the Nordwestschweizerisches Kunstturn- und Trampolinzentrum (NKL) Liestal and the Swiss Gymnastics Federation (STV), which will offer Gymnastics classes and an inspiring experience to a total of 100 kindergarten and primary school classes in the cantons of Baselland and Basel-Stadt.
Between January and March 2021, the coaches of the NKL will visit a total of 50 kindergartens in the region. During two hours, the children can experience a playful movement adventure with the professionals.
On the two qualifying competition days (Wednesday, April 21 and Thursday, April 22, 2021), 50 primary school classes will have the unique opportunity to experience the sports highlight in Basel!
Each class will have the opportunity to spend an hour in the gym with Swiss squad athletes and training coaches from the Swiss Gymnastics Federation. On top, they will experience the unforgettable Artistic Gymnastics spectacle live in the St. Jakobshalle.
Registrations will probably be possible from autumn 2020. We will inform about the registration process for kindergarten and primary schools classes in time.
