With the support of the NGO "Community Development" were held in Lviv children's sports competitions

Sports development of the younger generation today is one of the key objectives in the education of children. Because as everyone knows: a sound mind in a sound body! And, unfortunately, over the past few decades in our country, physical education for children went to "the background": the underfunding of sports schools, the close of free sports sections, the lack of modern equipment – all this has meant that for many young people sport has become something distant and unknown. Like many other issues in our country, the problem of physical education assumes the public. NGO "Community Development" pays considerable attention to the development of youth and sports, one of the last activities in this direction were children's sports competitions.
Young pupils of sports club "Legion", created by the NGO "Community Development" and sports club "Spartak", which works within the Specialized children’s school of Olympic reserve, took part in sports competitions, devoted to Day of protection of children. Team meeting was held in two age categories, competed kids of 5-7 years and a few older children 7-10 years. Each of the team members did their best to make things better for good result. Young athletes are not afraid of no falls or blows, and saw before them only one goal – to win! Words cannot express the emotions of children, coaches and parents that raged that day in the hall.
