Apprentices Day in the Park

Various sports, networking and discovering the multifaceted Wilhelmsburger Inselpark

Together with the team of ParkSportInsel e.V., the apprentices from the company AURUBIS and students from schools in our neighborhood, our new apprentices from Scheeßel and Hamburg experienced the first "Apprentice Day in the Park". A great opportunity to try various sports, for networking and to discover the multifaceted Wilhelmsburger Inselpark. Julius - dual student for industrial engineering in the first year of his studies - reported about the exciting day:

"Boah, actually I'm not motivated!" - 07:08 a.m., seven minutes before the start of the event with a focus on health. Health - yes, I am healthy: I have no cold and no injuries. Well, now and then neck and back pain, but then there's the elevator to take it easy.... Nutrition, exercise and relaxation - three aspects that are crucial for a positive work-life balance and thus good health. This is crucial for performance, both physically and mentally. Health prevents neck pain, for example, and gives us more self-confidence and security.

Together with the apprentices of AURUBIS we recently put the aspects of movement and exercise into practice in the Wilhelmsburger Inselpark. The "Park Sport Pilots" from the organization ParkSportInsel e.V. presented us five sporting stations, including viking chess, longboard, disc golf, wheelchair basketball and Ultimate Frisbee.

We were divided into 5 groups of about 20 people to try out the stations one after the other. After each station there was a challenge where the groups could collect points. At the end, the group with the most points was announced as the "winner". The prize: tickets for the climbing hall “Nordwandhalle”.

My "highlight" of the day: wheelchair basketball. Yes, you sit in a real wheelchair - somewhat modified - bounce a common basketball and throw at a common basket. Not so easy at all and definitely strength-sapping (I still noticed my arms a day later). Guided by two professional players of the sports club HSV it was very cool.

The nutrition was not neglected, so there was finally a buffet with salads, potatoes, pizza and for the health some the cake. 
14:27 p.m., twelve minutes after the health day - "Was actually quite nice today, right?"

We thank the teams of ParkSportInsel e.V., AURUBIS, BG Baskets Hamburg and the catering from the Nordwandhalle for the exciting and sporty day!
