Norrbotten's Sports Federation (Norrbottens Idrottsförbund) is the Swedish Sports Confederation's regional organisation. Its tasks are to support, represent and lead sports activities in the district. Diversity in sports is all about embracing opportunities and removing obstacles - making use of different skills, experiences and talents at all levels. With its universal language, sports can play an important role in increasing the understanding between peoples and groups. Influences from other cultures contribute to a positive development in Swedish sports. Everyone's right to participate means that anyone who wants to must be able to take part on their conditions. Norrbotten's Sports Federation is involved with various projects in integration and sports, and has also employed an integration coordinator to develop these efforts further.
