At its creation in 1983, the “Force Athlétique and Handisport of Villeneuve d’Ascq” was called “Association Sportive du Foyer Grafteaux”. In 1991, she became the “Sports and Cultural Association of the Foyer Jean Grafteaux” with the organization every two years of a circus show that provided part of the association’s own resources.
In addition, it benefited from the logistical support of the establishment and the provision of personnel to supervise certain activities.
By affirming its desire to integrate valid or disabled members outside the school, the association must leave the lap of the motor education institute in 2000 and become the FAHVA. From the weightlifting handisport, it regroups musculation in leisure for all, and the shooting sporting handicapped.
This change of orientation then allows disabled and able athletes to rub shoulders. This “confrontation” allows everyone to evolve together.
Everyone there finds the means necessary for success in the practice of sport whether high-level or leisure sport and contributes to a desire for integration that we encourage between people whatever their horizons and their possibilities.
The FAHVA allows the practice of recreational musculation for the able-bodied as well as disabled, from the bench press in the sports center ESUM and from the shooting to arms (in the Lille metropolis) in leisure as in competition for the handicapped.
