The pleasure of physical exercise is the message playfully communicated to schoolchildren through the Salzgitter AG "Sports Oszcar". In this competition to find the sportiest primary school in Salzgitter, the children compete in a range of disciplines. To support them in preparing in the best way possible for this competition, we provided the primary schools with "Fit4Future Drums" a few years ago, together with United Kids Foundations. These drums contain playground equipment that the children can use for sports activities throughout the whole year. Children who train regularly will have every chance of winning the "Sports Oszcar" in the competition.
We have been supporting the "Student's Dragon Boat Cup" ever since its first race on the Salzgitter Lake in 2008. Community and team spirit are what count in the dragon boat race, as elsewhere. Only teams that paddle in perfect time will make good headway in the 250 meter race.
Every year the organization Kulturkreis Salzgitter e.V. runs six theatre events, each in Salzgitter-Lebenstedt and Salzgitter-Bad; there are also six concerts at different venues in the whole city area and three castle concerts in Salder Castle. About 5,000 people are viewing the theatre performances; around 600 listeners are enjoying the high-class concerts. The whole program gets organized voluntarily by the organization.
The city of Salzgitter organizes a series of high-class concerts each summer, presenting classical and popular music performed by local and nationally known artists.
The professional associations of the District Sports Association Salzgitter arranges various competitions for kids and youths throughout the year in badminton, football, handball, bowling, athletics, swimming, tennis, gymnastics and volleyball. At the end of the season the most successful athletes of each age group get rewarded with a trophy.
