For years, NEWAG S.A. has been promoting an active lifestyle by supporting local sport initiatives. The Company is one of the two sponsors of NARCIARNIA Sports Club which operates in Nowy Sącz.
NARCIARNIA Sports Club was founded in 2009. It was a brainchild of Wojciech Wysowski, who is now the head of youth training as well as the coach of the oldest group. He inspired a group of winter sports fans with his passion. Zbigniew Konieczek served as the first President of the Club’s Board until 2012.
In the last six years, the club has trained nearly 70 members who ranked high in the National Younger Junior Championship, Poland’s Cup, and the Małopolska Ski League. The best contestants represented Poland during the Children’s World Championship and in other international contests organized by FIS.
Narciarnia Sports Club has been ranked high in both the general ranking of the Poland’s Cup and in the League of the Małopolska District Ski Federation winning medal and near-medal positions.
On May 17, 2014, at Galicja Town Museum in Nowy Sącz, an official closing ceremony of the 2013/2014 winter season was held for the Małopolska Branch of the District Ski Federation. Narciarnia Sports Club, sponsored by Newag, co-organized the event.
Awards were granted to the best Alpine skiers who had participated in the competitions organized by the Małopolska District Ski Federation as well as the best cross-country skiers of the past season. The awarded sportsmen included 27 cross-country skiers, 120 Alpine skiers as well as sports clubs and schools. Narciarnia Sports Club came second in the general ranking in the league of the Małopolska District Ski Association.
The ceremony was attended by representatives of the Polish Ministry of Sport and Tourism, Poviats’ Starostes, Vice Mayor of Nowy Sącz, Regional Chief Education Officer, President of the Polish Ski Federation as well as representatives of the city and region’s schools.
