Experts are confident that physical activity of children and teens decreased dramatically following the advent of computers and the Internet. Whether technological development is indeed to blame for the fall remains uncertain. However, we believe that the trend can be reversed if sport is promoted. Supporting Przedszkoliada Tour is an example of Grupa Azoty’s involvement in this area.
Well-being of our children
The future of Poland depends on our offspring. It is the adults’ task to ensure that children develop properly, and physical activity is an indispensable element of this process. However, the participation in physical education classes and activities has been plummeting, and the number of kids who do not take part in PE lessons has risen. As a result, the number of obese children is on the increase.
Championship for the active ones
Kindergartens from all over Poland have joined in Przedszkoliada Tour, an innovative program of sports games for children. Its fifth edition will be held in 2016 in 30 towns and cities. The program consists of a series of events that encourage kids to compete in various sports, under guidance and supervision of coaches and sportspeople.
Kindergartens preparing for the games take part in a series of events organized by Przedszkoliada.pl. The preparatory course includes learning to play basketball, football, volleyball, and getting to know the basics of physical development. The course is carried out all year round, helping children to prepare for the championships.
Przedszkoliada brings the undisputed advantage of providing children entertainment and physical education. The long-term result is the fall of obesity among children and teens and fewer cases of kids not participating in PE lessons. What is more, kindergarten pupils learn about competing using fair play principles. Last but not least, participating in the championships brings them plenty of fun.
Despite the fact that the popularity of sport is undermined by the omnipresence of Internet, we believe that we can encourage children to take up physical activity thanks to suitable promotion and support. Grupa Azoty has been getting involved in such activity in various ways. Grupa Azoty START is our flagship project that offers financial support to sport schools and junior schools in Poland, and provides event organization and promotion.
