CIS to revive indigenous sports

MINSK, 30 May (BelTA) - The program for support and development of indigenous sports in the CIS up to 2020 and the plan of action for 2015-2017 were signed by the CIS heads of government during the meeting in Minsk on 30 May, BelTA has learned.

"The program is designed to coordinate the efforts of the CIS countries in creating the conditions for the development and revival of the lost indigenous sports, their inclusion in international competitions," Belarusian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich told a press conference after the summit.

The program is needed to preserve the indigenous sports as a significant phenomenon of physical culture. The document includes general provisions, objectives, main principles, areas, forms, and mechanisms.

The program provides for the preparation of proposals for the approximation of national legislation in the field of sports, support of international competitions, including those among children and youth of the CIS countries, regular broadcasts, forums and conferences on indigenous sports.

It is expected that the Physical Education and Sports Council will develop, at least once every three years, an action plan and submit it for approval to the CIS Heads of Government Council.

For example, the action plan for 2015-2017 includes more than 20 international and national competitions and festivals, various thematic roundtables on the exchange of experience, and the activities to promote healthy lifestyle in the CIS member states.

The program is expected to stimulate the cooperation in the CIS in the matter of preserving the traditions and encouraging children and young people to take up indigenous sports.
