This week, Excelsior Rotterdam delivers several anti-racism workshops as part of the Excelsior Street League. By delivering workshops on topics such as racism and discrimination, participants of the programme get to share their personal experiences and discuss how racism and discrimination can be tackled. The Excelsior Street League is a street football competition for children between 10-14 years old. Every friday after school hours, tournaments are being played on different courts in Rotterdam.
More than football
The Street League is more than just football. Every week the children play games against other kids from the neighborhood, but besides the tournaments, teams can collect points by giving back to their community. Points can be collected by volunteering in elderly homes, collecting trash, organizing activities for other kids in the neighborhood. The more the teams give back to the community, the more points they collect. Another integral part of part of the Street League are the workshops that the participants follow. By delivering workshops, Excelsior combines football with Social Responsibility. Throughout the year, Excelsior delivers workshops on different topics, such as handling money, eating healthy, social media, and racism and discrimination. For the workshop on racism and discrimination, Excelsior uses resources provided by Show Racism the Red Card.
