United on Ice

Children and young people from low-income families are not reached by club sports and youth work in Berlin, making it difficult or completely impossible for them to access sports, society and success. This results in problems such as a lack of social skills, a lack of perspective, loneliness, and poorly developed skills in movement and social behaviour, which has a negative impact on shaping the future of young people.

The work of United on Ice goes far beyond offering open and free ice hockey and skating courses. Based on trust, common goals are worked out with all participants and ways to achieve the goals are shown and accompanied. In addition, young people are advised on how to apply for internships or apprenticeships. The ice hockey team offers a surrogate family in which cohesion and support are experienced and enables young people to practice a sport that would otherwise be unattainable for many, without pressure to perform or financial hurdles.
