Who we are
|The idea of creating the Youth Sport Clubs from an early age forms part of ŽP ŠPORT a.s. philosophy. The aim is to support talented sportsmen who will be able to develop their skills and study in Súkromné športové gymnázium ŽP. At the same time, the sport activities, organized on a regular basis, distract children from the adverse effects of the „civilized“ world lurking at every turn.
ŽP Šport, a. s. was established on 1st January 1999 and soon became one of the major promoters of sports and a healthy lifestyle in Horehronie region. The ambition of Železiarní Podbrezová, a. s. General Partner and their subsidiaries was to encourage ŽP Sport in carrying out the activities contributing to an extensive social programme. The Company Management has implemented the Programme for their employees for several years.
Working with the youth and making sports popular among all people has been one of the Company´s priorities. A large number of sport events organized by our company is a great means of support. These include, for instance, the Primary schools tournament for the Železiarne Podbrezová CEO Cup in football. Some actions have long bridged over the local framework and we organize them on an international level. This includes the World Cup in Ninepins, Champions League in Ninepins, Slovak Cup in cyclocross, International Championship of Slovakia in hang gliding, and the FIS Snowboardcrosse races.
Sport centres, which we established, along with football classes in Základná škola (basic school), Pionierska 4, Brezno, allow our company to work with youth at a higher, professional level. The Súkromné stredné odborné učilište hutnícke Železiarne Podbrezová, which includes the Športové gymnázium (high school for sports), bring thesport industries under a single roof: football, athletics, biathlon, golf, snowboarding.
ŽP Šport initially encompassed a wide range of sport industries in a technical, personnel, logistics and professional manner. Its activities have gradually shaped the present form, and currently we have coordinated the activities of the sports sections as follows: football, bowling, cycling, skiing, biathlon and hot-air balloons. Their security, support, and scope of work are represented in a variety of levels.
The athletes and the implementation of teams with professional equipment stands at the top of the pyramid. The activities have been associated with the operation of sports facilities to meet the needs of residents living in the nearby Horehronie region.
In its business activities, ŽP Šport company offers the public accommodation, catering, and transport services, summer swimming pool with heated water and other services.
