WHAT WE DO
At ACYSD, we are passionate about using sports as a catalyst for youth development and community transformation. Join us as we create a world where every young person has the opportunity to thrive through sports.
Here’s what we do in a nutshell:
We believe sports and education go hand in hand. Our school sports programmes are designed to ignite a passion for sports among students. We organise exciting inter-school competitions and activities, provide training sessions for both students and teachers, and equip schools with the necessary resources to foster a culture of sportsmanship and teamwork.
We know that sports have the power to bring communities together. That’s why we actively engage with local communities through sports clinics, events, and awareness campaigns. Our aim is to promote youth participation, encourage healthy lifestyles, and create lasting bonds within the community.
Inclusivity is at the heart of what we do. We are dedicated to providing equal opportunities for all young people to engage in sports, including those with disabilities or special needs. Our special sports programmes offer adaptive training, inclusive events, and advocate for the integration of disabled athletes in mainstream sports activities.
