Applicant and Project Coordinator
It is a young sport club, recently born (in 2013) in Ascoli Piceno (Center of Italy, Marche Region), but having strong and ancient roots, which can count on people with meaningful and relevant experiences (decades long) in Italian sport, both on a personal as well as cooperation levels. The Polisportiva Antroposport A.S.D. project is born out of the desire and ability to design towards the future by the scientific cultural associations I.P.A.E.A. and I.A.S.S.C. of Ascoli Piceno, which operate stably in Italy and abroad, respectively, since 1981 and since 2003, in the fields of psychotherapy, counseling, anthropology and human sciences, even with international partners such as the Professional Psychotherapeutic League of Russia (since 2001) as well as other Institutions from several European Countries.
The studies and experiences of these associations have highlighted how sport, in all its forms, is the center of gravity of well-being (be it cultural, physical or mental). The Polisportiva AntropoSport A.S.D. has been created and founded with the intention to offer such a perspective also and especially to the younger generations and
therefore it deals with sport, in all its practices: mini-soccer tournaments, mini-basketball, athletics, martial arts, dance, etc.; moments experienced as recreational, leisure, socializing and healthy competition opportunities, besides being an approach and education to psycho-motor skills.
Our specialty is the organization of sport events; this allows us to dare new perspectives of dialogue between sports and other areas relevant to the Well-Being such as, for example, Environment and Nature, Medicine and Psychotherapy, Art and Creativity, Natural and Cultural Heritage. It's a new perspective for sport, at least in Italy, but rich in vision and satisfactions in which are really committed presently.
We want to extend all the potential ways that bring people closer to sport practice, to sport culture and that may possibly renew the sight on Sport as a carrier for integration, sharing and social communication, the motor of human and civil progress.
The mission of Antroposport and the experiences of its people have led it to a broad collaboration, such as for instance the technical and sport organization of the "Creative Sport Paths" within the Festival of the Two National Parks, currently at its ninth edition.
Within the Festival of the two Parks, it has implemented successfully since 2013 more than 50 events (trail running, hiking, soccer, mini-basketball, athletics, martial arts, dance, etc.) for all ages, having taking part with its team to several others and offering dayli activities for all ages, in the territories.
The Polisportiva Antroposport ASD organizes yearly 10 sport events open to the public, especially in the mountain regions of the two National Parks of Monti Sibillini and Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga and the countryside, with more than 1500 particpants yearly. It can count on a strong management team as well as on motivated sport clubs members and volunteers who make all the events possible.
It has strong relationships with local and regional associations and education institutes as well as with other sport clubs all over Italy. It can count on a strict cooperation with local municipalities where it holds its events as well as with several private sponsors on the territory as well as with the managing authorities of the two National Parks mentioned above.
