The Mifune judo club has taken a significant step towards digital transformation in order to optimize the club’s work. After all, the Hückeswagen judo club received funding for the purchase of new laptops as part of the digitization offensive for non-profit sports organizations in North Rhine-Westphalia, which are intended to support the work of the board and the club. Cashier Katharina Mörike reports this.
The club has now received funding of 1248 euros from the district sports association. “This financial support enabled the urgently needed technical equipment, which was procured immediately after approval,” reported Katharina Mörike. However, the funds had to be pre-financed as the payment is not expected to take place until January.
The state of North Rhine-Westphalia is taking a decisive step towards promoting mass sport in the age of digitization: As part of the Initative Recovery Assistance for Cohesion and the Territories of Europe (“React-EU”) initiative, which supports the management of the corona pandemic and its social effects while driving preparations for a green, digital and stable economic recovery, funds will be made available for the digitization of grassroots sport. These are intended for the state sports association and its non-profit sports organizations. According to Katharina Mörike, the main goal is to offer non-profit sports clubs the opportunity to acquire modern digital facilities and thus strengthen popular sport in the long term. The projects supported range from the purchase of computers and presentation systems to control technology for energy modernization and digital access and locking systems. Meanwhile, those responsible at JC Mifune are delighted with this development “and are looking forward to the further digital transformation that will lead the club into the future,” emphasizes the board member. Founded in 1975, the association attaches great importance to diversity and inclusion, and is now looking forward to “a promising digital future”.
