Sven Kramer Academy

Sven Kramer Academy & IT4Kids

Sven Kramer is grateful for ice skating. That is why he wants to secure knowledge, experience and a network in a non‑profit academy to inspire youth and adults to exercise more through ice skating. The goal is to ensure that every child in the Netherlands experiences the joy of skating at least once before the age of 12. The Academy has developed a program to promote skating schools in the region.

IT4Kids supports skating schools during the winter and rollerblading during the summer in lower social‑economic neighborhoods.
