The DigiFit project is addressing the Erasmus+ priority of digital transformation by helping grassroots sport staff develop their digital readiness, resilience and capacities to be fit for the digital age. By aiming to facilitate innovation in the grassroots sport sector, it will ensure that sports clubs can stay DigiFit and thrive into the future.


DigiFit: Fit for the Digital Age will look into how digital transformation and innovation can be harnessed to build resilience and capacity in the grassroots sport and physical activity sector to make it #DigiFit. The main objective of the project is to accelerate digital transformation of the grassroots sport organisations and involved staff. The project aims more specifically to breed a culture of innovation in the field of grassroots sport through selected piloting organisations.

The two-year project is supported by an Erasmus+ Sport Cooperation Partnership grant. Its international partners, led by ISCA, will help increase the capacity and digital literacy of the grassroots sport organisations through skill development and blended learning methods. It will accelerate concrete change by piloting new solutions to aid short-term recovery in the Covid-19 aftermath and build the long-term resilience of the entire sector.
