MATP Training & Coaching Development in Europe

MATP Training & Coaching Development in Europe (MATCODE)

Participation in sports and exercise is significantly low among people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD), who completely depend on others for almost every aspect of their life. With the Motor Activity Training Program (MATP) the consortium wants to make a difference in their lives. MATCODE increases the participation of the PIMD group in physical activity, by:

  1. Increase the choice in leisure activities for people with PIMD.
  2. Curriculum development & capacity building.
  3. Further develop MATP in 3 EU countries, incl. new exercises.
  4. Building local and (inter)national cross-sectoral exchange networks: sport, health & education.

The Special Olympics Motor Activity Training Program (MATP) is designed for athletes who are unable to participate in official sport competitions because of their skill and/or functional abilities. MATP is effective to prepare athletes - including those with severe or profound intellectual disability and significant physical disabilities - for sport-specific activities appropriate for their ability levels. Therefore, MATP is one of the only movement activities suitable for people with PIMD.
