Sports and young people, the challenge lies in school

The international football tournament organized under the presidency of Eusulp, which for 2022 is led by the autonomous province of Trento, held these days in Giudicarie, was today an important moment for reflection on the inclusive role of football in mountain areas. A role that in this historic moment, after the pandemic, has an even more important value.

The president of the CONI in Trento Mora emphasized in his introduction that “the 2022 edition of the Eusalp tournament sees participation of the female component as a novelty. It is time for sports to be considered at 360 ° without finding gender differences, “abilities and disabilities, where everyone in this context can recognize themselves with their own differences. In a province that thrives on sports tourism, it is important to have appropriate structures, but even more so to have those who make them live”.

The FIGC President of Trentino Stefano Grassi brought his applause to the event, which has the benefit of combining sport with culture. “Sports at amateur and youth level is a cultural tool, our sports clubs are the pillar of sport in our area and have a very important role in society. Our mission is to make athletes grow, but even before training people who can get into society and grow with values ​​and sound principles. ” President Grassi also mentioned the ongoing recovery of the Trentino football movement following the pandemic: “Our youth sector has registered 9,200 members, a significant result”.

In his remote intervention, essayist and entrepreneur Boschetto Doorly talked about how the mountain has an extraordinary appeal in humans. In the last decade, mountain tourism, which refers to the entire alpine arch, has registered a significant increase. In Trentino Alto Adige we are talking about a + 30/35%. Young people are especially attracted to the mountains, attracted to the beauty and sense of freedom that it can radiate. Furthermore, today the mountain becomes a haven for well-being that also favors motor activity as well as sports, which are fundamental to balance and psychophysical health for all.

RAI journalist Bizzotto, unforgettable chronicler of many major sporting events, emphasized the value of volunteering in sports in the mountain dimension. “When we talk about sports in these places, he said – we are talking above all about victims: we think about the distances to reach venues, the presence and free access of parents and leaders, roles that often merge in small clubs. Trentino goes hand in hand with this wealth of human resources with the excellence of the structures present in the area.Just think of the famous teams that choose this country for their summer holidays and it must be the pride of those who live and work here, so football has its right dimension. “

Finally, the Provincial Council for Craft, Trade, Promotion, Sport and Tourism emphasized to Failoni how “it is not taken for granted that many projects can be carried out in Trentino because there are resources. All regions can count on sufficient funds, but these are the choices our difference was and is a clear political choice.Even the Eusalp Trophy project, whose presidency this year is represented by a delegation from the Councilor for Education, University and Culture, Mirko Bisesti, has the advantage of “We allow strong pollution between children, technicians and families. We strongly support the combination of sport and tourism,” said the Commissioner, “and we can confirm that we are winning this challenge given the large number of people arriving in Trentino for the first time.” .

In the future, it will be necessary to invest even more in the combination school-sport.
