The Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS) of the Council of Europe implements together with 15 project partners the EU funded initiative "Pro Safe Sport for Young Athletes (PSS)" aiming at the promotion of the physical and mental well-being of young athletes.

Emotional well-being of athletes is crucial for sporting success
From 14-16 July 2014, experts of "Pro Safe Sport" met in Leeds, UK, to discuss the promotion of mental/ emotional well-being of emerging athletes. There is broad agreement among the experts that greater attention should be paid to creating a positive sporting ethos where children and young people are respected and where their voices are heard and used to shape welfare and performance. This will not only promote the mental well-being of emerging athletes but also boost their sporting performance.
The results of the discussions in Leeds will feed into the educational toolkit of PSS which will be produced in the course of the project. The presentations of this workshop can now be retrieved from the following website: http://pjp-eu.coe.int/web/pss/workshop-leeds
