ISCA Asia Report 2013
The ISCA Executive Committee extended its full support to ISCA Asia on the Sport For All in Asia study. The purposes of this study were to investigate the Sport for All policies and collect information in the field of sport for all recreational sport and physical activity in Asian countries. A questionnaire was used to collect data at 10 Asian countries, namely China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, New-Caledonia, the Philippines, Qatar, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. Results showed that a clear majority of the Governments have policies on Sport for All (SFA) and provide more insights into this.
ISCA Asia is working very closely with the Pan – Asian Sports to identify more Professors / Researchers to conduct the Sports for All survey which will be an ongoing process.
A youth sports leader Mr. Penny Lam from Hong Kong attended the International Youth Leader Education training at Ollerup, Denmark.
23 participants from Europe and Asia participated in the Global Dialogue training course held Hong Kong from 16 – 23 December 2012. This course enabled the participants to understand more about Europe and Asia such as their lifestyle, habits, games and their working attitudes etc… It was a very well received course and we hope more of such courses with participants from all continents will be organized in the future.
In 2014, ISCA Asia is planning to build the network among Asian Countries by organizing the ISCA Asia sport for all forum. There are also plans to establish an internet communication system among Asian countries.
I wish to thank Prof. Dr. Lee Jong Young, Dr. Cheung Siu Yin and other members for their contribution and support give towards the activities of ISCA Asia".
