    The importance of the volunteers in FFK: working with overweight children is a very different and much more demanding task than that being a volunteer in a regular sports club. In local handball or the soccer team volunteers, meet children who like and love to play football or handball. In FitforKids, volunteers meet children, who can be very difficult to motivate and need incredible support, encouragement and spaciousness to be ready to participate in training.
    FitforKids instructors must be mentally clear and competent to take care of children and parents with the low level of preparation for change. Well-trained volunteers become over time and with continuous training to qualified instructors. Qualified instructors create results and personal experience of success is an import ant factor for success.
