This year again JumpandReach had a nice present for the kids of our kids(e)motion team SV Thaur U-11 as a “pre-Christmas-special”. They got the special chance to be escort kids at the game Red Bull Salzburg versus WSG Swarovski Tirol, which was also the last home game of the ongoing season.
The day started at the Bullidikidz area in the stadium zone, where the young participants had the chance to show their skills at the target shooting and speed-check stations. Additionally, there were a lot of activities to do inside such as tabletop football or juggling. The great atmosphere got heated up when the “Nikolaus” came by for a short visit and also the first interviews with the kids were done.
After the warm-up, the preparations for the highlight of the day started. From the beginning on the kids were full of energy and their excitement was clearly noticeable. With their eyes full of expectation the kids were allowed to wait in the players’ tunnel where they couldn’t wait to get a “high five” with all the players. Then their dream, walking into a big stadium in front of thousands of fans hand in hand with one of their idols, came true for the kids from SV Thaur U-11.
After the big moment, the atmosphere was great on the stands as well – even though the one or other young fan was cheering for the luckless Tyrolians. With nothing but happy faces, the kids left Salzburg heading home. It was a great day which will stay in the heads of all participants for quite a long time.
