An article written by Lucas Meijs of RSM, and Philine van Overbeeke, Junior Researcher at the Business-Society Management Department at RSM. The article discusses the importance of sports clubs, and the importance of sports in general. The article claims that it is really practicing citizenship in your own way based on authority rather than power. That is why the popular saying 'it takes a village to raise a child' can be better changed in the Netherlands to 'it takes sports associations to raise children'.
