School sports > Information
The city of Murcia presents characteristics which are difficult to compare with others in many cases. Sport is not foreign to this special feature and its promotion requires the determined participation of the City Council in order to get to extend the sport practice and to assure it as a life style.
With this aim, the City Council of Murcia has been working along the last years in the design and content of its most ambitious project: THE SCHOOL SPORTS PROGRAM. Without any doubt, this enormous effort, both in human and material resources, will dynamize the sports agents of the city and will enable the City Council to take part again in the cycles which develop the School Sport in order to improve our Sports System, which will reach a high development and a permanent research of new goals.
As always, the program will be developed in out-of-school time, and linked to the educative process, in spite of its volunteer character and within the framework of the free time occupation. It can be practiced inside or outside the centre?s facilities and can be developed in the scope of the sports clubs, and public or private entities.
I would like to thank one more time the collaboration that this Department of the City Council of Murcia finds in all the educative centres, headmasters, parents and teachers, recognising their invaluable contribution to the success of each campaign.
For all this, we invite you to take part in the current summon 2009/2010, and we hope it complies with the expectations of all the collectives involved, especially the schools of our municipality.
