About the Guadiana Cup

Through a partnership with CM VRSA to promote an event that will foster the sporting activity in the municipality and at the same time promote social and cultural activities, he was born The Guadiana Cup.
The main objective of this event is to provide youths from 7 to 17 years of age with the practice of football in a relationship between children, which basically aims at the personal training of all participants (hence the promotion of participation with accommodation so that these young participants are responsible with their colleagues and technical teams).
The child is particularly sensitive to the conditions of life that are imposed on him, responding, in turn, with behavioral changes. Sport will provide aid to young people and contribute to the determination of social, educational and cultural mechanisms conducive to their harmonious and balanced development.

At the end of the event our aim is that all its participants have acquired the following parameters:

Learning to know the benefits of sport;

Learning to live with others, what only the right team play;

Learning to be a citizen and athlete;

Encourage sportsmanship and good education among participants;

Encourage the personal relations of young people - with each other, with others, with coaches and with all people related to the sports society;

To create in the young the feeling of respect: for oneself, companions and technicians.
