Abstract [en]

Sport is a global phenomenon, which can make sportan important arena for integration into new societies. However,sport is also an expressionof national culture and identities. The aim of this study is to exploreimages and experiences that newly-arrived immigrant children in Sweden have aboutsport in their countryof origin, and challenges that can arise in processesof integration through sport. We asked20 newly arrived children aged 10 to 13 to make drawings about sporting experiences from their countriesof origin. Three themes emerged:sport as feeling joy,whereactivitieswereperformed with friendsduring leisure time;sport asacting formally, where activitieswere carried out inclubs;and sport as a spectator, where children were non-participants. We emphasise that development of sport should be two-way processes, where cultural learning should be mutual processes. Immigrant children’s experiences should be foregrounded when utilising and developing sports programmes.
