On Thursday things went getting lively in the Ludwig-Jahn Hall in Nellingen. Reason for this was the 2nd Soccer Integration Day. About 30 students from Germany and refugees played Soccer there.
The Motto of this event is „soccer connects and overcomes obstacles”. The training began at half past eight and ended at lunchtime. DFB A-Licence Trainer Jochen Bauer and youth trainer of VfB Stuttgart Tobias Rathgeb trained the children in their soccer skills. In the end of the event every child got a shirt and a football.
The Soccer-Integration-Day is an initiative by JB Fairplay and takes place in several schools in Baden-Württemberg. The idea behind is obvious: Sport connects – especially team sports. The place of origin of the children doesn’t matter at all. A common language is during the game not necessary. The most important thing is the team spirit and fun together. This encourages integration. Elektror the manufacturer for industrial fans supports this event from the beginning.
