Run your Own Charity Soccer Match

Soccer is loved world over. It is a great way to exercise and it brings communities and families together over the love of the sport. And raising money for charity is a virtuous and fulfilling activity. So putting these two activities together is a perfect way to get communities together to raise money for a worthy cause. Organising an event like this, while fun, can also seem daunting. So below are a few things you can do to make sure your event is both fun and raises plenty of money for charity.

Getting the Players Together

This is the first and simplest step. And a great way to also get people intrusted in fundraising and donating. Ask around your local community. Find people who are interested in taking to the field. While some may not be the best players, you’ll find many people love playing regardless and with members of the local community involved in the match, they are able to fundraise them selves and get more people involved and coming along for match day.

Organising fund raising

Beyond the match itself and the sponsoring the players will collect, there is so much fun to be had off the field and plenty of opportunities to raise money. Approaching those in your community and seeing what they can offer in terms of activities Everything from bake sales and cooked goods, to selling handmade crafts.

Another great way to get people involved is to look into selling custom silicone wristbands. A perfect way for people to show the cause they are supporting while staying stylish too. A great place to find wrist bands like this is at SleekWristbands.com.

Getting support from Stores

Don’t be afraid to approach different sporting stores and see if they are willing to donate to the event. Anything from kits and shoes to providing balls or water bottles. Often these stores are more than happy to be associated with charity work and get their name out there for increased advertising. It is a great way to build up hype for the event and make it feel more offical.

Going further, look at other large businesses that might be willing to lends a hand. See if they are willing to donate any products that could be used for a raffle for the day. Raffles are a great way to raise a bit of extra money alongside the match and they get people excited and committed to showing up.

4 Surprisingly Difficult Sports We Think You Should Learn in 2020

2020 brings in a new decade and new opportunities. With this refreshing spirit it might be a good idea to sample out these four different and difficult sports.

The first of the four would be ice hockey, a sport most commonly associated with North America it has become more and more globalised over recent years, which has made it extremely accessible to newcomers. The sport is obviously quite complicated to casuals, with a number of obstacles to get past upon entrance, not only do you have to learn how to play hockey; but also, how to skate. The sports scoring system is the same as field hockey with one score past the goalie counting for one goal. What sets ice hockey apart from field hockey is the inherent violence involved, with players constantly smashing into each other and fights regularly starting, which are actually not broken up by any official. For entering this sport I would highly recommend purchasing the Bauer Vapor FlyLite Hockey Stick and the BAUER Supreme 2S Hockey Skates, offering a lightweight and durable performance, this gear will allow you to whizz around the pitch. The sport will improve your discipline and balance, and also give you a new found team ethic; as ice hockey is probably the sport which will require you to rely on your teammates most.

The second sport you should try learn is bowling. Perhaps the fastest growing worldwide sport bowling is experiencing a renaissance in its popularity. There are leagues for casuals popping up around Britain and North America, allowing for an easy entrance. For new players it might be a good idea to try enter these leagues in a team, so you can quickly learn from more established players. The goal of the sport seems quite simple, knock down as many of the ten pins as possible, but as anyone who has actually played can tell you this is not as simple as it seems. For bowling gear, it is perhaps most important that you pick the right ball and it must be said that the columbia is a great choice. The ball is currently the most versatile available in the bowling ball market. With an extremely high base speed, and yet an extremely high hook potential, this ball is bound to knock most of the pins over from the first hit and will be able to swerve into any leftover corner pins. Truly the perfect bowling ball. Taking a while to truly master the sport does have countless benefits, offering you a nice after work hobby and with the new growing competitive market perhaps even a nice pay day.

To take this list into another field I would highly recommend giving trampolining a try. Perhaps the biggest pro of the sport is the health benefits it can provide, a trampolinist can expect an easy form of weight loss and a newfound cardio level. Unlike the two previous sports mentioned in this list the sport will give you a new form of independence. As it just you and your leotard on the trampoline, this will give you a self-discipline, as you will become more inclined to take responsibility for yourself and your actions. The sport of trampoline is the perfect boost in your physical and mental abilities, as it does require intense focus. We all remember how much fun playing on your trampoline was during childhood, so why not try out the adult version.

The final sport in this list is Football, or soccer for our American readers. Though it may be the most popular sport in the world many who do not watch can find the whole process quite confusing. The sport of football has many rules that new players will find hard to understand, stereotypically this is the offside rule. Once you actually start to play these apparently confusing rules will become extremely easy to understand. Perhaps the best part of football is how easy it is to play, all you really need is a ball. You can go out with your friends for a simple kickaround anywhere, making it the ultimate social sport. It can be said that footballers are the ultimate athletes, as when the sport is played in an official match it will require a player to run around for a full 90 minutes. As the sport has a litany of positions you should be able to find the perfect role for you.

All four of these sports will give you new skills that you are unlikely to find in other less difficult sports, which is why they are perfect to learn. As it is a new decade why not give them all a little try and see what is right for you.

The Coolest Skateboarding Events Around the Globe in 2020

2020 may be the most important year in skateboarding history, for the first time ever in the summer Olympics it will be officially recognised and countries from around the world will compete. This is instrumental in finally giving skateboarding the recognition it deserves. Many of us probably have quite fond memories of Tony Hawk and his ilk when we were kids, but this recognition will allow even more legitimacy and perhaps even bigger stars to rise from this true sport.

It is quite strange to see skateboarding at the 2020 Olympics, a sport that does represent rebellion and counter culture to finally see the mainstream recognition it deserves. The Olympics have allowed for this rebellious attitude to remain with skaters allowed music to accompany their ride. Many skaters did push against the sports inclusion but the international recognition the sport will now receive can only be seen as a good thing.

Though I felt it was quite pressing to put this news of skateboarding at the Olympics at the start, we should not forget the classics. Perhaps the most famous extreme sporting event in the X-games will be taking place in Aspen for its twenty fifth anniversary. The X-games is the biggest extreme sporting events hosting everything from surfing to rollerblading, but it is skateboarding where it truly collects most its fame and legacy. The host to so many iconic moments, this being the twenty fifth anniversary will surely only see bigger and more ambitious skaters to truly honour the games legacy.

2020 may be the most important year for the sport in it`s long history from an idea, a piece of rebellion to this international recognition. The sports growth and appeal may peak in 2020 and the future of skating can only be seen as bright.
