EC Development is one of the most important steps for anyone who wants to receive funding, whether public or private. First of all, it is important to characterize two things: social project and sports project.
The social projects that we portray here are formal and non-formal initiatives that aim to develop activities in outlying communities in large cities or in the interior of the state. They are social agents who rely on donations of sports equipment and the assignment of spaces to offer sports, without profit, and leisure to children and adolescents. They are people who seek to transform the local reality in the face of the lack of State investments.
Sports projects are the gathering of techniques, methods and processes that will be developed by the sports association or foundation put on paper. It is the work plan that will be presented by the proponent (the one who forwards the proposal) in an objective and detailed way, to the public administration or private company with the intention of obtaining resources.
That said, in addition to formalization, with the constitution of an association or foundation, as already discussed in the two previous posts, the elaboration of a sports project is essential for those who want to receive money to fund the activities of a social project, a training program for athletes or build an adequate space to receive the kids, for example.

Assembly of Pará wants to develop Olympic sports
Traditionally, the club has important results in basketball and volleyball (team sports), in addition to tennis (individual sports). To expand AP’s participation in the courts and swimming pools, the sports directorate is making changes, starting with the statute, so that it can develop sports projects, raise public and private resources, and invest in training programs for new athletes with an eye on the Olympics.
The intention is undoubtedly innovative. After all, no club from Pará has been developing serious work in training athletes to compete in the Olympic Games. The challenges, however, are not few. The club would need to invest in infrastructure to serve new sports, in addition to reducing the height of walls for non-members and the community. A first step may be in welcoming the All Star Rodas, led by Wilson Caju. The 19x Brazilian women’s champion wheelchair basketball team can have the club’s doors open to develop, with more quality, training and games.
The sports manager of the Assembly of Pará, Guido Quêtto, spoke with EC Development about the club’s projects and challenges. See the full interview.
