To empower and uplift community engagement, through the transformative power of sports, fostering unity, inclusivity and personal development
Sport-field is on a mission to provide a dynamic platform for young athletes, encouraging not only athletic excellence but also holistic growth. By creating a vibrant sporting community, we aim to instill values of teamwork, resilience and community engagement, paving the way for a brighter future for all.
To work towards our mission statement, Sport-ified brings kids together annually for a thrilling field and track race compeitition - where the pounding of feet on the track echoes the beat of excited hearts - fostering physical activity and social interaction. Through this event, we strive to create an environment where children not only compete on the track but also learn valuable life skills, embrace the joy of physical activity and build lasting connections that contribute to their overall well-being.
At the core of Sport-ified is a commitment to promote happiness , embrace the joy of face-to-face interactions and discover the positive impact of physical activity on mental well-being. We believe that every child deserves a vibrant, active and fulfilling childhood. Together, we can race towards a happier, healthier future for our youth.
Sport-ified seeks to establish a thriving sporting community that brings children, parents and local residents. We aim to foster a love for sports, promote healthy lifestyles and strengthen community bonds. Through engaging and memorable events, we aspire individuals of all ages to embrace an active and socially connected way of life.
We envision a future where every child experiences the joy of a dynamic, active childhood within a supportive community that embraces the transformative potential of shared experiences. Together, we strive towards a vision where Sport-ified is a beacon of unity celebrating a thriving, connected and inclusive youth culture.
Our vision at Sport-ified is to lead a movement where the fusion of sports and community joy becomes a powerful catalyst for unity and celebration of diversity.
There’s a great quote by Paulo Coelho that helps put what we are about in perspective:
“Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first, they have to understand that their neighbor is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions"
Relationships are powerful. Our one to one connections with each other are the foundation to change and building relationships with people from different cultures is key to building diverse communities, that are powerful enough to achieve significant goals. There is no community without culture as it defines our understanding of the world and creates meaningful connections among people.
Our story began with a simple yet powerful mission: to empower youth through active joy. Sport-ified is not just an organization; it's a movement dedicated to fostering connections and celebrating diversity through the love of sports and culture. Our annual event stands as a testament to this commitment, where the excitement on the track mirrors the heartbeat of a united community. More than an event; we are a platform for children to not only engage in healthy compeitition but also to cultivate life skills that contribute to their overall personal and social growth.
In a bid to contribute to notions of belonging, sense of place and identity, Sport-ified hosts an annual sports compeitition for kids and teenagers to build moral and team spirit and to also encourage sports and physical activity, where we invite children from all backgrounds to participate in a number of track and field activities. We are a continent that loves sports and we believe sports are one way to bring people together, no matter where they are from, what they look like, while also allowing for a shared experience, promoting camaraderie and connection. At Sport-ified, we are proud to embrace the diversity of our community and strive to create a welcoming environment for everyone. We believe that by celebrating our differences and learning from each other, we can create a more equitable and just society for all.
The event starts with a spectacular and colorful March Past, where kids of different teams, give parents and guests a taste of what would follow. The compeitition features many interesting activities, such as relay race, sack race, track race , among others. The kids give their best to ensure their respective teams emerge the winner all looking forward to the grand finale when they get presented with their medals and trophies. In addition to the activities, we also offer cultural experiences through our food and music. We believe that these experiences are crucial for promoting cultural awareness and understanding.
Our kids take these competitions serious and try their best. The various teams participate in different athletic events and the winner gets to keep the trophy. Children are grouped by age into the different sports and everyone gets to compete and cheer on their team. It is also a family event where kids also get to cheer on their parents, when they take on the track as well, promoting family bonding.
Sport-ified also aims to inculcate the spirit of healthy competition among our kids and encourage community building. The activities give our children the opportunity to participate in representative sports such as athletics, march past, music and other activities with the aim of raising self-esteem, developing self-confidence, sportsmanship, respect and more importantly, a feeling of belonging within the community thus fostering a sense of cohesion and known identity. We think that these values are invaluable and critical in producing cultured, energetic and responsible young men and women, and will remain with them beyond the field.
We welcome all individuals who share our passion for sports and cultural experiences. Whether you are interested in volunteering, sponsoring or participating in our events, we invite you to join us on this journey . Together, we can make a difference in our community and beyond.
Come be a part of our journey- where active joy knows no bounds and the spirit of unity propels us forward.
This event is open to the public.
