The Community of Madrid will allocate 890.000 euros to the Program of Institutes for the Promotion of Physical Activity and Sport. To this end, the Governing Council approved at its meeting last Wednesday, authorizing three agreements with the Madrid futsal, basketball and volleyball federations, amounting to 296.010 euros each, for the 2021/22 academic year. The objective of this initiative, which is now in its sixth edition, is to establish reference centers for extracurricular sports.

The endowment of the Community of Madrid, in the three cases, will be distributed in two annuities: 106.260 euros in 2021 and 189.750 euros for 2022. The funds will be used for federative coordination (25.740 euros) and sports monitors (270.270 euros).

These amounts are calculated taking into account that 4.620 sessions should be held before the end of 2021 and 8.250 during 2022, barring unforeseen events regarding the calendar or if the start of the program is delayed. In that case, an attempt would be made to group them on alternative dates to those initially planned. In case of impossibility, the amount to be paid would be reduced in each section proportionally to the cost of the sessions actually held.

The maximum number of training sessions for each sports school will be 22 in 2021 and 40 in 2022. Additionally, up to six competition sessions may be held in 2021 and another 10 in 2022.

The federations, for their part, will have the obligation of the ordinary management of the sports schools, each of which must be integrated into the Center Sports Project within the Program of Institutes for the Promotion of Physical Activity and Sports of one of the institutes. Secondary education included for the 2021/22 school year.

In addition, each school must have a minimum participation of 12 students and a maximum of 23 simultaneously (in the previous call the maximum was 30 students).

It will be up to the federations to carry out promotion campaigns and attract students in each of the secondary schools where the program will be developed. Also the training of sports monitors in strategies and methodologies that allow them to develop the program in accordance with their social, educational and sports purposes.
