Our Philosophy

 

“Sport is an order of chivalry, a code of ethics and aesthetics, recruiting its members from all classes and all peoples. Sport is a truce, in an era of antagonisms and conflicts, it is the respite of the Gods in which fair competition ends in respect and friendship (Olympism). Sport is education, the truest form of education, that of character. Sport is culture because it enhances life and, most importantly, does so for those who usually have the least opportunity to feast on it.”

Rene Maheu

Former Director of UNESCO

“Vision without action is a dream.

Action without vision is merely passing time.

Vision with action can change the world...”
