A worldwide network of teachers and researchers in traditional games and sports

by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

Since 2001, when AEJeST was created, the will to encourage networking to promote TSG and their social values has been one of the main challenges. The course of time has confirmed that there are no frontiers in this field. Moreover, it led us in 2009 to become founding members of ITSGA and to initiate projects at the European and international levels.

As we told you in our candidacy, one of the initiatives is to create a worldwide network of teachers and researchers in traditional games and sports.

After announcing this initiative to colleagues from different continents, we received a very positive response from people motivated to participate in this network as teachers and/or researchers.

In parallel, after receiving the institutional support of INEFC, I think that the beginning of the year 2022 is a good time to present this project.

You are all invited to attend the presentation.

Traditional games and sports: institutionalization

by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

Dear AEJeST family

I would like to inform you that this Thursday 29th October, through zoom at 24.00 hours, Guy Jaouen as President of ITSGA and myself as President of AEJeST are going to collaborate with the Pan-American organization of TSG. We will talk about the experience of AEJeST and ITSGA and highlight the importance of networking.

The idea is not to transform the TSG into Olympic sports, but to show the importance of having an institutional organization (statutes, rules of procedure, partnership agreements) for the protection and promotion of the TSG at the local, continental and international levels.

by Biel Pubill Soler in General

Resume of the thesis  of Cristian Văduva, vice-president at A.R.J.T.S.,general secretary at F.R.Oină, a sports teacher at the base. I defended my doctoral thesis on 29.06.2020 at F.E.F.S. Cluj Napoca Univ. Babeș-Bolyai.

OPTIMISATION OF THE HIT WITH THE BAT IN THE OINA GAME THROUGH BIOMECHANIC  ANALYSIS

The subject of this research is due to the fact that the hit with a bat can make the difference during an oina game. The purpose is to describe in detail the hit with a bat through a biomechanical analysis in order to obtain information necessary to perform a better hit since the longer and higher the hit is the better increases the chances for gaining points during an oina match.

Dear AEJeST family

A few weeks ago we lamented the death of Bernard Glacial, a friend of the Traditional Sports and Games in general and of the Boule de Fort in particular. The pain of that moment was transferred to his family along with a bouquet of flowers.
