extreme sportsFrom May 5th to 7th, the Municipality of Loulé promotes the “Radical Sports at School” project in schools of the 2nd and 3rd cycles of the municipality, with the main objective of developing awareness-raising actions on various extreme sports among students.

According to the municipality, “interest in extreme sports has been increasing in this Municipality and the recent inauguration of Skate Parque de Loulé will certainly be another step towards that increase. The awareness of rules of practice and safety become essential to be assimilated by the practitioner. So, taking this need into account, this project was created within the scope of “Loulé European City of Sport'2015”.

This initiative is a road show by the schools, in a partnership between the Municipality and the Radical Skate Clube, in the week before the Skate Challenge 2015, in which the 1st stage will be at Skate Parque de Loulé, on the 9th and 10th of May.

The municipality intends to «bring Skate to schools and publicize the sport in a training aspect, complemented with demonstrations and interaction between professional athletes and the school community».
