Basic sports management in preschools is an area on which, in the region of Southeast Europe, no country has particularly focused. Investing in preschool sports organization is necessary for several reasons: The first reason is to raise the level of the nation's health. The second reason relates to the prevention of illness in later life, and the third reason is the possibility of creating future athletes, or making a home base from which the most talented children would be directed to local clubs in sports in which they have shown interest in or talent for. It is essential for sports activities to be available to every child, and in order to achieve this, sports for children should be free of charge.
