Nike Sport Day, organized by Nike and SSA Sports in HCMC’s District 7 last week, attracted more than 1,000 school children.

The event included basketball and football matches, interactive games and fun activities that inspired movement. More than 30 Nike community ambassadors and employees actively engaged in volunteer efforts in the community coordinated with SSA Sports to support the event.

With experienced coaches from SSA Sports and enthusiastic Nike community ambassadors, the Sport Day was a good opportunity for kids to take part in a sporting event while building new friendships, fostering teamwork and enhancing self-confidence.

Nike began partnering with SSA Sports in 2016 to introduce the Active with Sports program, with the ultimate goal to bring the new methodology to Physical Education (PE) in Vietnamese schools and inspire kids to engage with sport and physical activity so they can experience many benefits of a physically active lifestyle.

The Active with Sports program was first introduced in four primary schools and has expanded to ten primary schools in HCMC. During the last two years, SSA Sports delivered PE training at schools with support of coaches across continents to elevate PE teachers’ capacity to deliver early, positive sport and physical activity experiences to thousands of kids.

Nike encourages the schools to apply the training methodology and at the same time, provides necessary equipment to support the schools as they integrate the learnings into their daily PE classes.
