S.d.S. Sport-Wochen

Every summer for over 37 years, the City's Service Sports (Sports Department) has organised sports programmes for young people aged 11 to 17 called "Sport-Wochen". These activities take place during the summer school break and include the following: 5 "Mini Sport-Wochen" for young people aged 11 to 12 and 14 "Sport-Wochen" for those aged 13 to 17. These sports weeks last between 4 and 7 days (with or without overnight stays), and are held either in Luxembourg or abroad.

Goals

  • provide opportunities for boys and girls from all social backgrounds to engage in physical and sports activities during their free time, and in so doing contribute to their overall development and well-being.
  • enable young people to discover one or more new sports activities or improve their skills in a particular discipline
  • create opportunities for young people to have shared experiences, make new friends, and take part in activities in a friendly environment of mutual respect between trainees and instructors.

During this programme, special attention is paid to young people's health and lifestyle (healthy exercise habits, balanced diet, drinking enough water, sleep, rest, etc.).

Programme

"Mini Sport-Wochen" courses are built around sporting activities suited for kids aged 11–12. Courses include "Mini Multisports", "Mini Multisports Nautiques" and "Mini Sailing" (Netherlands).

Supervision

Children with special needs

The "S.d.S. Sport-Wochen" are generally open to all children, including those with special needs, provided that the Service Sports is notified in advance of such needs and given all the relevant information so that it can review registrations on a case-by-case basis and provide additional means of support if need be. However, it should be noted that while the youth coordinators supervising the children are fully qualified, they do not have the specialist professional training to look after children with special needs (e.g. children who suffer from an illness or have developmental delays, struggle to communicate, have a behavioural disorder or a sensory/motor/mental impairment, etc.). If it is clear from the information provided that a child needs specific individual care that surpasses the knowledge and skills of our youth coordinators and the Service Sports in general, the City of Luxembourg reserves the right not to accept such applications.

Number of participants

The Service Sports reserves the right to cancel a specific sports week due to an insufficient number of participants (less than 50% of the places available).

COVID-19 public-health measures

This summer, the City of Luxembourg will be hosting its "S.d.S. Sport-Wochen" programme for young people aged 11 to 17, provided this is permitted under the public-health regulations in force at the time these activities take place. The activities will be held in Luxembourg and abroad. In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the City of Luxembourg will comply with all public-health measures in force at the time. The well-being of all participants and instructors is an absolute priority for the City of Luxembourg, and every effort will be made to limit the spread of the virus (safety, social distancing and hygiene measures). Any and all measures that are applicable abroad at this time will also be observed. Said measures may need to be adapted in line with the development of the pandemic and the implementation of restrictions in Luxembourg and abroad.

For the protection of everyone involved, all participants (both children and staff) in the "S.d.S. Sport-Wochen" programme are required to comply with the public-hygiene measures in force, in all facilities and at all sites (e.g. hands must be washed regularly with soap and water and, where applicable, alcohol-based hand sanitiser should be used; sports equipment and personal belongings should not be shared, etc.). Any participants who do not adhere to these public-health measures will be banned from participating in the "S.d.S Sport-Wochen" activities and their parent(s)/guardian(s) will be required to come get them or otherwise make provisions for their safe return home (including during trips abroad) at their own expense.

Participants with symptoms of a respiratory infection or COVID-19 will be required to go into isolation or return home immediately. Parent(s)/legal guardian(s) must be available at all times during the activities to retrieve their child should they display symptoms of COVID-19. If a child develops symptoms, their parent(s)/guardian(s) will be charged with organising their safe return home (both from within Luxembourg and abroad).

Depending on how the pandemic develops between now and the "S.d.S. Sport-Wochen", the introduction of new measures by the government may result in changes to the organisation of the activity programme planned for the summer of 2021, such as the alteration, limitation or even cancellation of some or all of the activities and camps. The City of Luxembourg cannot be held liable for any of these changes. The City wishes to make it clear that, despite all the measures and precautions taken and all recommendations implemented in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the risk of infection during these sports activities cannot be ruled out.

As such, the City asks that all participants and organisers act responsibly and in the collective interest to prevent the spread of COVID-19 during the "S.d.S. Sport-Wochen" activities
