Our support of the “1P Movement – A part of the initiation of children’s interest in movement and sport” (“Pohyb 1P - součást iniciace zájmu dětí o pohyb a sport”) project originates from the many findings regarding obesity and physical inactivity that have a negative impact on the overall health conditions of the Czech population. These projects aim to identify the motor skills of pre-school children, with immediate evaluations provided to parents and kindergartens. Included in the project is an awareness program for parents, regarding the importance of sports and physical literacy that leads to a healthy, active lifestyle. The information also includes an offer of sports activities in their areas, as well as heath warnings (eyesight, tendencies toward obesity) and recommended nutritional solutions. 1P is executed in collaboration with students and employees at the University of West Bohemia and the Higher Professional School Pilsen. It has long-term support from both local and regional levels. Projects Kindergarden Olympics (Školkiáda), Motion Prerequisites 2P (Pohybové Předpoklady 2P) and Sport Festival (Festival Sportu) follow up with support of the NSM. 1P activities are also applicable within other regions of the Czech Republic.
