Application deadline extended for MOVE Quality and MOVE Transfer

This May, ISCA will select 20 initiatives to go through the MOVE Quality process and 5 initiatives to go through the national MOVE Transfer process in 2014/2015.


The application deadline has been extended to Wednesday 30 April 2014. You can apply via the online forms at the MOVE Quality and MOVE Transfer websites. The full calls for applications can also be found at and


Received applications will be reviewed for a period of 2 weeks. A decision about the selected applicants will be taken on 14 May 2014 and successful applicants will be notified by 16 May 2014.


MOVE Quality and MOVE Transfer are brand new processes that will be coordinated by ISCA in collaboration with experts from grassroots sport and other related sectors:


• MOVE Quality is a 12-month process consisting of a series of development and evaluation phases culminating in a Quality Mark. The capacity building approach of self-assessment, followed by action planning and regular review to monitor the impact of your initiative is the key strength of MOVE Quality.


• MOVE Transfer is a process of identifying physical activity initiatives for hard-to-reach populations that have run successfully in one setting and transferring them to a new setting (another organisation, another community). It will also offer certain initiatives the opportunity to expand their scope within their own country (“scaling up” the initiative).


What are hard-to-reach populations?

“Hard-to-reach populations are those who are difficult to access due to a specific factor that characterises its members. Such factors may include… language age, gender, geographic location, income, ethnicity, education, health and accommodation.” Source: Dunn et al. (2012)*
