Strengthening European Traditional Sports

Building a network to strengthen European traditional sports and games


The second meeting concerning the 2017 European TSG-project can be called succesfull.  During the meeting, perfectly hosted by Sport Fryslan, al lot of progress was made. Not only on the gathering of information about TSG-organisations out of the whole of Europe and on the gathering and presentation of good TSG-practices.  Especially on the vision about how the platform should work, the progress was indispensable.  The participants agreed - with the help of the text prepared by VlaS -  on most aspects of the functioning of the platform.  A vision, goals and actions were defined.  During two evenings, Sport Fryslan made us participate in two Frysian games: keatsen and skutsjesilen.  This helped us remember what all our theoretical discussions are all about.
