Celebrate children’s and youth football, strengthen club life, and learn sustainable values for a healthy lifestyle. This combined, more than 800 children and young people from four nations experienced over Ascension Day in Slagharen/Ommen in the Netherlands at the multi-day sporting event organised by KOMM MIT.
After the successful season opener over Easter, where over 220 teams from eleven nations came together under the motto “ALLtogether – for peaceful coexistence”, KOMM MIT now united the younger age groups under the sign of “growing up healthy” through football.
In addition to the exciting games, the children and coaches had the opportunity to learn from athletics coach Jean-Camille Yakéléba exercises for a gentle warm-up as well as new incentives for training at home and preventive approaches. In the course of the long-standing cooperation with the German Cancer Aid, KOMM MIT informed about the importance of sun protection as well as the importance of a balanced diet.
The information offers were rounded off by sunscreen dispensers and free fruit baskets on the individual match days. In addition to football, the children and young people also had time to get to know each other away from the sports facility. As the teams were accommodated in the amusement park “Slagharen”, they could use it free of charge during the event.
In addition to health education, KOMM MIT also promotes voluntary work in sport, international understanding among children and young people and gender equality.
