The association also attaches particular importance to the availability of organized sports programs to young people, regardless of their financial abilities, as well as to the development of programs that link pre-school, school and university activities to sports activities.

Box 3005, 903 02 Umeå
The Swedish Sports Confederation is an umbrella organization consisting of 70 special sports federations and 21 district sports federations. Nearly half of Sweden’s seven million inhabitants between the ages of 7 and 70 are members of sports clubs – as managers, trainers, supporters, active competitors or keep-fitters.
Some two million of these are active athletes but less than 1% of them compete on a national championship level. This makes Sweden one of the world’s most sporting nations, and the Swedish Sports Confederation is acting proactively to encourage lifelong sports participation.
