Who We Are
We are here not for income, but for outcome
The MSSA is comprised of street sport enthusiasts and experts that strive to educate the general public about the benefits of participating in street sport with the aim to see the street sport scene thrive. These include BMX, skateboarding, inline skate, scooter, street football, street basketball, parkour
The objectives of MSSA is to use street sport as a tool to help youth stay away from all sorts of addictions, namely drugs, alcohol, corruption, etc. The organisation promotes and educates people on how to use Street sport to participate in physical activity and conduct a healthy lifestyle. They use their experience and expertise to promote the sports that fall under street sport, so that these become more popular and available to youth, catering particularly to individuals with limitations to adhere to a particular training schedule. They see this as adapting to the current challenge youth are increasingly facing to join popular team sports due to lack of time available or/and with financial difficulties. Sense of belonging is important for youth, and considered crucial for mental health and social wellbeing, among other factors. Street sport offers opportunities which other sports lack, such as accessible for both regular practice and sporadic practice, and in a group or individually. Consequently, this gathers those youth who feel somewhat marginalised because for any reason they cannot be part of a team sports such as traditional sports.
MSSA organises various Street Sport Shows and events around Malta and has also hosted two international events for the Redbull “Full Moon” Series. One being a BMX, skateboarding and scooter competition and the other being a street football competition. In 2021, MSSA also had two scooter athletes compete in a World Championship, representing Malta in a Street Sport World Championship.
The members of the committee understand well the concept of sustainability, which helps them look at the bigger picture. The foundation of MSSA is built on the continuous development of the younger generations and generations to come. Hence, they organise regular workshops to involve the young people in the design and construction of the ramps and skatepark projects. They are given hands on experience by equipping them with useful skills such as woodwork, so that each generation teaches the next. This will contribute to the continuation of the street sport scene, hence making the whole concept sustainable. During this workshop, youth were taught under professional supervision and watched their work develop into a ramp or even better into a skatepark. This sense of pride and ownership facilitated the dissemination of the projects as the youth were enthusiastic about their achievement and reduced vandalism because they understand better the work behind the fun.
