The foundation believes that access to soccer is a fundamental right for every child and adolescent. Through our foundation, NSPU aspires to offer equal opportunities to children and adolescents in soccer, so that through the sport they can flourish mentally and physically, while acquiring social skills and sports values.
Positive values that organizations like NSPU aim to teach through Soccer include:
• Teamwork: Learning to work together with others toward a common goal. This involves communication, cooperation, trust and support for each other.
• Respect: Treating others with dignity and being considerate of different backgrounds, abilities and perspectives. This includes respecting rules, opponents, teammates and officials.
• Fair play: Following the rules and spirit of the game, competing with integrity and demonstrating good sportsmanship even in defeat.
• Solidarity: Caring for and helping others. Looking out for the interests of the team as a whole, not just oneself. Being inclusive of all players.
• Tolerance: Accepting differences and being open-minded toward others. Refraining from prejudice and discrimination.
• Inclusion: Ensuring all players feel welcome, valued and able to participate fully regardless of their abilities or backgrounds. An inclusive environment fosters a sense of belonging.
• Responsibility: Taking accountability for one's actions and decisions, both on and off the field. This includes being a good role model and ambassador for the sport.
Those are some of the core positive values that NSPU hopes to instill through using soccer as an educational and social tool for youth development. The idea is that soccer can be so much more than just a game - it can help shape character and build a more just, tolerant and united society.
