We present to you a unique sports event for children which promotes healthy living through positive competition and strong spirits.
Youth Movement Power is an umbrella project whose aim is to promote international popularization of sports activities and to develop general awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyle from the earliest age. During the first four years, Youth Movement Power has positioned itself as the most important and largest manifestation of this kind in this area.
It encourages the development of positive sports attitudes
The project’s mission is to strengthen the role of body culture among the young and to create a platform for the development of sports and the creation of strong and healthy individuals who respect their environment and themselves.
The main part of the project is the Croatia Trophy Tournament, an international football and handball competition for children and young people aged 9 to 17. The founder of the project is the association Health Life Academy, which promotes daily activities and sports among children and young people. Health Life Academy is committed to developing healthy lifestyles among children and the young and eliminating negative consequences of the inactive, sedentary lifestyle (of young people aged 9 to 17 years).
More than a hundred sports teams and two thousand participants from Austria, Italy, Hungary, Germany, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Spain and Denmark participate in the competition this year. So far, the tournament has attracted remarkable clubs such as Barcelona, Viborg Denmark, Celje Pivovarna Laško, Slovenia or Dinamo, Croatia.
The goals of the project are to encourage children coming from different parts of Europe and the world to develop social skills and make new friendships through play and sports competitions, to encourage the development of positive sports attitudes in collective competitions and to develop a healthy relationship to victory and defeat.
The ambassadors of the project are top Croatian athletes Mirza Džomba and Slavko Goluža. Over the past few years, the project has achieved exceptionally high coverage in the media, with a financial value of almost half a million kuna a year.
