Inclusion

Without coercion or boundaries 

Disabled sports have an exceptional integration value – sport knows no boundaries. Sport connects people of all ages, from all social classes and cultures, and people with and without disabilities.
However, rather than being forced, integration and inclusion should be voluntary. Sport is to be put into practice without coercion as a matter of course; there is also a place for separation. 

Inclusive sport

Inclusion is a social concept where each person can feel that they belong, regardless of their condition. In an inclusive society, nobody is excluded, while differences are tolerated and seen as natural. The only “norm” is that everyone is different and that they also have different needs in sport.
