July-August-September In the spotlight - Emmen

Vital City Challenge is part of activities taking place in Emmen always trying to reach more people to promote healthy living. National Sports Week 2022, September 19th, presented a demonstration training held by football club Titan in collaboration with The Oldstars of FC Emmen. The club meets "the older guard" where adults/seniors aged 55+, men and women in a mixed team will pick up soccer again in the form of WalkingFootbal. “Come and strengthen us!” during the open training on October 6 at 19.30 pm at football association Titan; a good start for a new group WalkingFootball.

Senior Sports News is all about "Ageing Healthy and Fit" in a programme that includes fitness tests, sports, game and group lessons for free. Once again, it becomes apparent how valuable this method is! More than 80% have decided to become a member of the sports club Hart op Tempo in September, and, this is a nice way for us to keep the project going. On Tuesday November 8, the next “Ageing Healthy and Fit – fittest” will take place for the villages of Oranjedorp and Nieuw-Dordrecht.

Life Goals Emmen, is a partnership between FC Emmen Naoberschap, The Salvation Army and the municipality of Emmen made possible -partly- by the financial support of the Oranje Fonds, Sports Agreement 'Emmen moves' and the municipality of Emmen. We focus on the vulnerable residents of the municipality of Emmen, homeless people, people with a psychological vulnerability, people with addiction problems and the long-term unemployed. Social Sports Coaches guide participants in various weekly sports activities in Emmen. Furthermore, Emmen can now participate in National Life Goals, join forces with other Life Goals municipalities and organize various events in Emmen.
