The Sport Inclusion Network (SPIN) is built on the vision that sport is for ALL in society. However, marginalized groups, including refugees, migrants, and ethnic minorities – particularly women and girls – face barriers when participating in sport and physical activities.

SPIN has been formed to address these barriers and often intersectional dimensions of discrimination such as gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, or social status. Our goal is to make full use of sport as a means for social inclusion and integration.

The strength of a network lies in the diversity of its members. Therefore, we call on sport clubs, associations, NGOs, and grassroots initiatives as well es public institutions and companies, to unite for social inclusion in and through sport and join SPIN.

The purpose of SPIN (from our statutes):

SPIN fights for the right to enjoy sport and physical activities in a safe environment without the fear of discrimination and/or harassment.

SPIN promotes equality and equal opportunities in and through sport and combats any form of discrimination.

SPIN, in its operations and practices, is committed to principles enshrined in international frameworks such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, and the European Sports Charter.

If your organization supports these values and our mission and you are interested in joining SPIN, we would love to hear from you.
