Why do we want a sporting event?

  • We want to convey to young immigrants in and around Amsterdam the importance and value of sports. To highlight the social, cultural and sporting sides in a community that has not yet made sport their daily routine.
  • By letting the youths participate we want to stimulate them to be the front runners and as a side effect of this to have them stimulate the (immigrant) youth in their area as well.
  • We want a routine sport in the lives of young people. This leads to them participating as full citizens and helps the minority youth to participate in society, preventing social isolation and the preventing nuisance and problematic behavior.
  • Give young people a chance to network together and share their experience and knowledge.
