• Hungarian School Sport Federation (HSSF) is the biggest civil organisation in the fields of youth sport and education in Hungary. The Federation, founded in 1987, went through a major transformation in 2012, extending its mission beyond school sport: HSSF decided to support teachers to implement quality physical education, and to promote health-conscious, future-oriented lifestyle through regular physical education and fitness assessment. The mission of our organisation is therefore significantly wider today than it was before: the main goal is to increase the number of children who are actively involved in physical activity programmes and promote the concept of health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA) and grassroots sport. HSSF also participates in promoting values like volunteering and social integration through physical activity. To effectively follow these goals, we are also keen to further strengthen our international activities. Today, HSSF is member of International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA), Federation Internationale d’Education Physique (FIEP), European Physical Education Association (EUPEA) and International School Sport Federation (ISF). The representative of HSSF also acts as national focal point for HEPA.
