The Berlin Braves are not just any sports club. They give young people in professional and amateur sport backing and support with their collaborative and holistic approach – because you can sometimes get lost without a community, especially in the everpulsating vibrancy of Berlin.
The Berlin Braves are based in the heart of Berlin – and this is the perfect location to reflect the club’s attitude. “At the heart of what we do is, of course, our love of sport,” explains Simon Dube Paul, member of the board of Berlin Braves. “We all love the feeling that sport gives us.” The club has specialised in the disciplines of running and basketball and has already enjoyed some success here. Our sporting goal is for our basketball teams to reach the second national league. More than anything, however, the Berlin Braves are also a place to go for people of all kinds: “We integrate everyone and champion diversity – as a community we can only benefit from this.”
Community – so that you can rely on each other.
Member of the board Arina Vahdati is also proud of the community that has evolved over the years. There is a huge amount of confidence in all the members: “It takes a lot to be ready to go week in, week out. We all have our own baggage – but we are all still there every week and can always rely on each other.” The Berlin Braves know how important togetherness is – not only in sporting competition, but also in friendships. That is why the club adopts the progressive approach it does, wanting nothing more than to enable its members to live a fulfilled and positive life.
The fulfilled and positive life.
“Sport teaches you lessons for life. You learn to persevere and fail, you also experience frustration,” says Arina. That is why sport is extremely important, especially for young people. The club wants to prepare kids for the future, socialising them through sport. Friendship is very important – you support each other wherever you can, particularly as the most diverse people come together here. The Braves strive to strengthen Berlin’s culture and reflect the city’s identity. Recognising, respecting and upholding diversity. That’s why the Braves love spending time together beyond playing sports: successes and togetherness are celebrated at joint events. Joie de vivre is also part of sport. It is extremely important to come together again, not least after the pandemic.
Lust for life through sport.
Sport plays an important role for everyone. “For me, sport is synonymous with life – if I don’t do sport, I feel right off track,” says Arina. She sees it as a chance to give something back to her body, “because it does so much for me every day.” The euphoria she experiences in basketball never wears off. “No matter what happens on the court, my lust for the sport is constant.”
