International Workers & Amateurs Sports Confederation
We are pleased to announce that the WDBF has renewed its partnership with the International Workers & Amateurs Sports Confederation (CSIT) and will be bringing dodgeball to the CSIT World Sport Games this September in Emilia Romagna, Italy.
CSIT is an international multi-sports organization, founded 1913 in Ghent/Belgium and based on the historic ideas of the international labor movement. Within the last decades, CSIT has reoriented to become a broad-based Sport for All confederation. By organizing major sports events worldwide, establishing international networking platforms, engagement in EU projects and developing educational programs CSIT is led by one guiding principle: Spirit of Sports – Spirit of Unity.
The World Sport Games are a major multi-sports event held every two years, full of sports, sport for all, cultural exchange, fun and new opportunities. These Games are not multisport games for top athletes, but for all amateurs from different countries and cultures all over the world. Not only is the organisation of competitions in the foreground, but also organizing a huge festival with the spirit of the beautiful region Emilia-Romagna at the famous Adriatic Sea coast. The objectives are the gathering of sports friends, as a worldwide family to advance making friends as well as the exchange of information, expertise and experiences within the multi-sport community of CSIT and its partners.
