Summary

Sport, in general, can be utilized as a cross-cutting tool to promote education, health, inclusion, intercultural dialogue, development and peace. It generates important values such as team spirit, solidarity, tolerance and fair play, contributing to personal development and fulfilment.Human Resource Management in Sport, which deals with education, training, employment and volunteering in sport, is the topic that we selected as it covers our main interest, which is the education and mobility of coaches in synchronized swimming. The project focuses on education of coaches in the fields of training approach, choreography, implementation of other sports and their respective cultures, music interpretation, swimming costumes and make up, nutrition and management. Synchronized swimming coaches in our part of the world have no possibilities for education and knowledge improvement. There is no school or course a synchro coach can take in this part of the world, so the only way for improvement is to connect among ourselves and share experiences and information, otherwise known as non-formal education. “Primorje Aqua Maris” has equipped itself with an expert coach, specialized in Choreography, Health and Nutrition, Coaching Psychology and a few more topics, she intends to share through lectures given in theory and a hands-on approach at the workshops. However, in order to flourish, knowledge needs to grow and expand, including by crossing borders. This is where the European dimension in education, training, and youth policies comes in. With this project we would like to provide support for trainers, coaches, and trainees; as well as encourage member states or partner institutions in EU neighboring countries to reform and modernize education and training systems and develop policies so that they are better equipped to tackle today’s and tomorrow’s challenges
