Athletic activities are a vital part of SNPJ life as they contribute to friendship, personal growth and the development of positive mental attitudes with respect to leadership, teamwork and sportsmanship. Historically, the Slovenian culture emphasized the value of good health, paying attention to the development of both sound moral character and physical fitness. Keeping in mind the saying “health is the greatest wealth,” we continue to promote and nurture member well-being through individual and team athletic competition.
