We organized Winter Sport Camp for 23 people between 18-35 years old – foreigners living in Slovakia and Slovaks together. We wanted to give them chance to meet people from different background, countries, cultures and learn various winter sports together!
We learnt skiing and snowboarding together 🙂 In the afternoon and evenings, we had various getting-know each other activities, teambuilding games, interactive competitions, building snowmans, exploring nature etc. In the evenings we danced, chatted, explored our cultures and countries
Very positive feedback from participants gained through anonymous questionnaires or public reviews on social media make us encouraged to organize similar camps in the future.
Rijeka Ski Club organized a ski school on Platak , winter 2019., for those who are least able to afford sports activities like skiing. 13 children attended the ski school. With the Center for the Culture of Dialogue and its leader Sandra Grozdanov, cooperation was provided and a targeted group of children was ensured, primarily those living in poor socio-economic conditions and unable to afford sports and recreational activities such as skiing. Through a five-day stay at Platak and a ski school, children did have the opportunity to develop motor skills, stay in the snow, learn to ski and strengthen their confidence, all with the instructors and professors of kinesiology from the Rijeka Ski Club.
Departure from Rijeka at 8:00 in front of the Ski Club Rijeka, arrival on Platak 8:30, rent and inspection of equipment. Duration of ski school from 9:30 to 14:30 (5 hours). Lunch 2:30 pm-3:30pm. Rental of equipment. Last day organization and skiing competition on the Radeševo ski lane. Competition duration 50 min. The rest of the day exercising a ski technique.
The program includes: transportation between Rijeka and Platak – Rijeka, all-day skiing school, ski pass, equipment rental, final sports competition, graduation, full board at the boarding house, breakfast, lunch and dinner, supervision, guiding and organizing trips. We have provided complete ski equipment for children from the financial assistance of this project.
We had a chance to take the kids to the Ski World Cup competition in Croatia, called the Audi FIS Ski World Cup “Snow Queen Trophy” 2020, which took place at the Sljeme Ski Resort in Zagreb, on Saturday 04 January 2020, in the slalom for women, and on Sunday , 05 January 2020, in the slalom for men. Member of our ski club “Rijeka” representative Ida Štimac participated in the competition so the experience was even greater!
Great opportunity to meet with representatives of various organisations and sport clubs, exchange good practices, knowledge and plan future projects and events together.
