SPORTTUBE wants to prevent overweight and obesity among Slovakian children aged 6 to 18 years old. Our goal is to motivate children to regular exercising using their-advanced communication tools. The programme promotes nationwide entertaining sport competitions, supported by sport celebrities. We are trying to organize at least 4 competitions annually, focused on winter and summer sport activities and dance. During the last 5 years, we succeed to involve more than 160 000 children in our competitions.
The goal of the SPORTTUBE programme is to help teachers and parents to involve children to sport activities and change their habits in a sustainable way. We also use the Epode-methodology, following official scientific recommendations and encourage children to enjoy sport and physical activities in their everyday life.
