In dramatic and difficult moments during competition, sport has an extraordinary educational potential, which is especially important for children and young people

Sport is a common good of mankind, the expression of human creativity and passion. The tendency toward sports is the expression of an individual’s ability, of the motivation for spreading the limits of human capabilities and of gaining experience.

The project is aimed at fostering positive changes that promote the importance of physical culture, in order to encourage the development of active everyday life in children of school age. Because of the sensitive period between childhood and maturity, it is important to have leisure time of quality, developing a tendency towards movement and physical activities, that are unfortunately less and less present in modern life.

The strenghtening of mass amateur sport is therefore imperative as well as the effort to engage more children and young people in sports activities. Although we are witnessing the increasing professionalisation of sports in order to achieve top achievements and material status, it is important to preserve the spirit of the Olympics with the message “It’s important to participate” instead of putting pressure on children and athletes with the message “It’s important to win.”
