An attractive program

Many activities are planned to celebrate this day: sports initiations, demonstrations, exhibitions, meetings and signings with high-level Gard athletes. “We hope that as many as possible will respond”warns Nathalie Pourrias, coordinator and development manager of the Gard CDOS. “For the moment, only Enzo Giorgi (fencing) and Louanne Pouzancre-Hoyer (Athletics) will be sure to be there”she specifies.

A treasure hunt and a photobooth with the mascots of the Paris 2024 Games will also punctuate the day. These activities will be led by the clubs and departmental committees of the Gard sports movement, present to introduce their disciplines and promote the values ​​of sport and Olympism.

Throughout the day, around fifteen activities will be offered to the public, including: handball; volleyball; Table tennis ; Athletics ; fencing; judo…

Also, the day before the event, nearly 300 students will have the opportunity to try the activities during a day dedicated to schools. Some will participate as part of the Cordées de la voix, a program aimed at encouraging academic and professional ambition.
