SPARK was first launched at the 2010 European Athletics Championships and has since developed into a great platform for demonstrating the key disciplines of athletics: running, jumping and throwing. The partnership with FCN has further expanded SPARK to include training guidelines for young athletes and their parents.
During the course of the Indoor Championships in Belgrade, FCN will hold workshops at the SPARK tent, encouraging all young spectators to participate. Activities will be based around an indoor track and field concept called Sportshall and is aimed at kids aged 4-16. The SPARK area will also include the popular Nutrition Zone tent, which is dedicated to promoting and encouraging healthy eating.
At this year’s Indoor Champs we will also be running a hashtag competition (#sparkfcn) where spectators can share their experiences of the Indoor Championships and stand a chance of winning a SPAR shopping bag.
