“Hay Equipo is much more than a sports policy, it is a comprehensive and social policy. We are democratizing access to sport, making clubs available to a lot of boys and girls who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend. This program helps to build a fairer Argentina,” Lammens said during the event, which took place at the “Al Ver Verás” club in the city of Mar del Plata.
In the same sense, Vizzotti highlighted: “Clubs have a role that goes beyond sports, they have a social role. In addition to sports practice, they prevent situations of social risk and vulnerability. This program reflects a present, active and efficient State, synergizing all areas and working together with the provinces and municipalities”. Raverta also expressed himself during this event that was also attended by the Undersecretary of Sports of the Province of Buenos Aires, Leandro Lurati: “We need a State that guarantees that the children go to school, are controlled, go to the doctor and, furthermore, spend your hours in a club where you can be happy. It has to do with the horizon of the future that we propose: our responsibility is to generate that floor of opportunities”.
The National State seeks to guarantee access to various sports practices throughout the country, covering the cost of it in registered clubs. In addition, through mobile health devices that will travel through the institutions, comprehensive health checks will be carried out on those who access the Program.
Registration is open until March 10 for sports institutions that wish to participate in the program during 2023. Documentation proving the regular operation of the entity must be presented and vacancies made available to the program in all or some of the activities that are held at the club.
For their part, as of March 15, boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 17 will have to be registered by their mother, father or guardian, holders of the AUH, and choose the activity of their choice within the available offer. . If the requirements are met, the scholarship will be awarded.
This program adds to the comprehensive strategy of which Clubs in Work, the Energy Subsidy, the Assistance Unit and training are part, with the aim of continuing to accompany clubs throughout the country, as part of a policy to promote access to sports at the federal level.
