In Germany, we run three important initiatives. Kinder+Sport has been a supporter of the Sport Badge tour of the German Olympic Sports Confederation since 2007; as such, it encourages children and young people to test their fitness levels in light athletic activities. In 2015/2016, a tour held in ten German cities involved 1.2 million children.
In 2011 the Kinder+Sport Basketball Academy was established: in 2015/2016 it involved 43,000 children in 200 events dedicated to learning the basic rules of basketball, together with champions like Henning Harnisch. Since December 2016, Kinder+Sport supports the Frankfurt ice hockey team "Löwen Frankfurt" (Lions Frankfurt). The collaboration focuses on the promotion of young talents within ice hockey.
