Foundation and its mission
We strive to popularize the sports activity of intellectual disabled people. We support athletes on their way to the championship, organizing training, competitions and sports camps, and helping them prepare.
We create conditions for building a group of high-performance athletes with intellectual disabilities. We recruit those who have extraordinary potential in specific disciplines and see their future in sports. We prepare individual training programs tailored to the capabilities of our pupils.
We run training and information campaigns aimed at teachers, caregivers and parents, which are supposed to raise their awareness of the benefits of physical activity of people with disabilities. We communicate with public institutions in order to increase organizational and financial supportof the sport of people with intellectual disabilities, and to improve legal regulations. We talk with the business community, looking for sponsors and patrons. For companies, we develop programs in the field of corporate social responsibility, including activities for the benefit of sports of disabled people, which can be easily implemented into business strategies and presented in relation to the obligation to report non-financial data regarding environmental, employee and social issues.
We support activities aiming at involving athletes with intellectual disabilities in the Paralympic Games. To achieve this, we integrate sports environment, run media campaigns, and promote athletes and their achievements.
Dr. Geoff Smedley's, SUDS President & CEO, invitation to Trisome Games 2020
Dr. Geoff Smedley, the Great Friend of athletes with intellectual impairment and Godfather of the qualified sport of people with Down syndrome, as always in beautiful words, invited us all to participate in Trisome Games 2020.
Keep going, Dear Mr. Geoff! we will be there:)
I waited almost 17 years to share such a message. I dreamed (having a child with a disability) that someone would give my son a chance - he got that chance. Now it's time for your kids. The trails are already worn and I can recommend them with a clear conscience - the best sports sections for intellectually disabled children and adolescents, with the best trainers.
Such activity is very much needed. Until now, there was no place where our children could regularly play sports, acquire technical skills in the chosen discipline and go through the subsequent stages with a view to competitions. I am glad that such an initiative was created.
