In brief

kick mit Austria aims to female target groups with difficult initial conditions such as social problems and / or migration background. The general approach includes girls and women in motion, girls and women in responsibility and women in function.

The initiative started in Vienna, a satellite in Salzburg has been created in conjunction with akzente Salzburg and in autumn 2017 the satellite in Vorarlberg has been added to the portfolio with the implementation partner FC Lustenau 1907.

Football training for girls from girls: the primary goal is to inspire girls between the ages of 6 and 16 for movement and thus to spark interest in sports and joint activities, as well as to stimulate personal development processes; attendance is free of charge for a school year and they can practice themselves in football or just try out. In addition to the athletic aspect of the units with football, the goal is to strengthen the participating girls in their self-esteem as well as in their positive body feeling and in addition to educate the older players to become a coach and community leader.
