The Rincon de la Victoria Sports Department has seen an increase in the number of children and adults participating in sport with 1,700 registrations for municipal sports schools.

The free registration this year, the increase in sports disciplines and the situation of a new normal ‘level 0’ have contributed significantly to the increase in the rate of physical and sports activity among the child and adult population compared to to last year.

Last September, the Public Local Administration Agency (APAL) Sports of the Rincon de la Victoria Council announced the free registration of all Municipal Sports Schools for the 2021/2022 season.

This pioneering initiative has helped increase the rate of physical activity and sport among children and adults.

“We started the course with a thousand young students and 700 adults enrolled. Last year we finished with lower numbers. Currently, we continue to register users who occupy free places among the wide variety of sports disciplines that we offer, ”said Sports Advisor Antonio Jose Martin (PP).

The mayor of Rincon de la Victoria, Francisco Salado (PP) said: “We could even double the number of registrations in the coming weeks compared to last year.”

Salado underlined “the investment and the commitment of the government team so that the municipality continues to grow as a sports community”.

“We are focusing on clubs and associations, as well as improving infrastructure and facilities.”

“The proposal to reduce the payment of tuition fees is one more initiative to support and promote the practice of sport for all our residents,” adds the advisor.
