One of the sub committees of the Tibetan American Foundation of Minnesota (TAFM) is the Youth / Sports. TAFM sees that sports enhance not only physical well being but provides much needed social interaction and harness youth energy into productive skills This committee strives to sponsor and organize sporting events annually among the youth both locally and in competitions with the Tibetan associations in Midwestern regions of Madison and Chicago.
Every year around the time of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s birthday on July 7, Midwestern Tibetan communities of Chicago, Madison and Twin Cities gather to take part in sporting events of Basket ball and soccer competitions. The enthusiasm thus far from our youths has been keen. We continue to envision on how to better the current sporting events into one that is more inclusive of the cross sections of Tibetans of all sexes and ages.
