SC Janus recognized for Street Soccer program

As part of the celebration of the fifth anniversary of the Cologne Community Foundation, Cologne was recognized for its "Strafu" street soccer project.

From our experience in our club and in our daily lives, we know how important it is to offer support to young homosexuals. The project (see more HERE) is run wth the Youth Centre ANYWAY, which already has a boys' soccer team ("Hot Shots"). Thanks to this project, we have been able to create a girls' soccer team. Through the street soccer tournament, barriers between young homosexuals and heterosexuals are reduced.

"Strafu" is a proven concept from Potsdam, to create intercultural dialogue, to promote the participation of young people, and to break down prejudices. Last summer a first exchange on this subject took place in the Netherlands. "Strafu" uses the potential of sport to offer young people a platform where they meet and develop social skills. Above all, it highlights the value of teamwork, conflict management, listening, dealing with differences of opinion, and active participation.
