The Belgian club, KMSK Deinze, is a family-orientated club. They always approach their activities from a family point of view to provide everyone with a feeling of belonging. With their social engagement, they want to further develop their responsibilities within the city of Deinze and the community around it.
Koninklijke Maatschappij Sportkring (literally Royal Society Sports Circle) Deinze acts nowadays in the Challenger Pro League, the second tier of Belgian Football. It’s their vision to focus on a family-first point of view as it is important that all different ages are represented at KMSK Deinze. They want to be a gathering spot for all social groups and provide them with a place to develop themselves. The club also emphasizes the importance of healthy nutrition on a daily basis and made it one of their goals to make young people aware of the importance of healthy food.
Together with players of the First team, the club went plogging around a local lake. This is to raise awareness among both young and old to sort litter and not dump it. In the spring of 2018, the whole world was under the spell of the new fitness trend plogging, originating in Sweden. The word plogging is a contraction of the words jogging and plocka (collecting). Plogging is a sporty way of getting rid of litter, you immediately clear away everything you come across.
Back to school initiative
KMSK Deinze wants to provide all new schoolchildren with a lunch box and a water bottle. By doing so, we want to make them aware of the disposable waste that is often used at school lunches. Many children take their food with them in foil and drinks in plastic bottles. With this action, the club wants to change this and reduce the amount of garbage.
