The project aims to support mobility of grassroots sports coaches from different disciplines and multisport contexts, who spent a period abroad at the Partner organizations, thus encouraging the acquisition of new knowledge and skills and therefore thus facilitating personal and professional development, employability and integration in the European sport system. The project laid the basis of a model of Multisport Coaches Mobility Programme, which could be replicated in the future.

CROSS aims to promote, through the rules of social soccer, a new vision of football and sport, made of cooperation and tolerance. Rediscovering the sport not only as physical well-being but as a means of social inclusion to address all forms of intolerance and discrimination. The integrity of sport is seen as the ability to live the business of football as an opportunity for interaction and exchange of values. CROSS is a best practice model to be replicated and shared with other countries on the basis of scientific studies and comparison between different realities.
