T.S. Iron Man is a non-profit organisation working in the area of training, economic and social research, specialized in the fields of sport and youth.
The organisation was created in Gogolin in 2006 aimed to respond to the challenges of the human capital management and socio-labour inclusion. Special project experiences consist in fighting against obesity and overweight and the promotion of active lifestyle, dual carrier and education in sports. Another important field of our work is to improve the conscious and the importance of the values of sports. We organized cross border events in football and cycling focused on Respect and Fair Play.
Another project is the development and improvement of the voluntary work in sport clubs. We have good experience by a cross border project in 2013/2014 (Interreg project at the dutch-german border). One of the results was the to encourage the youth for voluntary work in sports and to give advice to the clubs on how to interest and motivate the youth. T.S. Iron Man is formed by a professional team of people coming from different areas of expertise in research and projects´ development, offering comprehensive services and working under strict quality criteria.
The key person involved in this application leads the academy and works in practice in a lot of fields of sports. Particularly in the field of promoting engagement of young people in society by projects in sports and health. He has set up a lot of local networks in municipalities with primary schools and sport clubs and parents and the staff of the municipalities.
Networking and dissemination of good practice is one of his important experiences. The training of teachers and sport trainers and the organizing of sport events focused on Fair Play and Respect are further important experiences for being a partner in the project. T.S. Iron Man activity at European level during the last 8 years provided us with a wide network of professionals and associates all over Europe.
This network is formed of a variety of entities from complementary expertise and experience areas (social actors, NGOs, public and private training providers, public bodies and administration …), helping create formal alliances to develop specific initiatives and inspiring our activity through the exchange of experiences, knowledge, methodologies, and results.
