"Klubok in Sneakers" Festival (photo report)

January 23, 2015, 12:00 828 Author: Olesya Kulakova, translated by Oxana Burns deti.zp.ua On December 6, 2014, tourist project "Klubok in Sneakers" together with industrial complex "Zaporozhstal" held the first children and youth festival "Klubok in Sneakers"

Фестиваль «Клубок в кедах»

Teenagers became the central figures of this occasion. The main idea of this event is all sports are available.

At the festival all the children were given the opportunity to compare different sports and find among them the one they like the most. The kids had a chance to have a word with coaches, participate in workshops and learn some interesting information about the presented sports.

Holiday atmosphere favoured the spirit of competition and passion for sport. The teens tried to show their best performance in all sports and at the same time get lots of positive emotions.

As practice shows, famous sportsmen never decide in favour of a particular kind of sport right away; before they achieve great results, they often try themselves in different sports.

In addition to sporting events, the participants greatly enjoyed an interesting concert program.
