The pace is so good that there's no need to slow down now!

We have regularly offered free training opportunities to children from low-income families, people with refugee backgrounds, and to other children and young people in challenging life situations. We want to support the equal enjoyment of all children and young people and inspire them to engage in versatile hobbies. In addition, we want to promote the growth of our junior athletes into athletes by offering high-quality coaching and the opportunity to actively compete.
