Basic information about the philosophy and way of working of our team.
The activities by which we are today recognizable to the wider community, as well as the team and individuals, are the result of a dedicated and continuous process of learning and training in the field of sports, civil protection, adventure and ecology.
Numerous members of different ages, interests and professions, make our team coherent and successful in the joint activities in which we operate.
Now a successfully implemented idea, it started 10 years ago, when we are an informally organized group of young people, led by head teacher Dejan Puzovic, who "gathered" us around him with his pure and well-meaning energy, to bring young primary and secondary school students closer to physical activities and beauties of staying in the natural environment.
The vision, mission and codes were known to everyone from the very beginning and did not fundamentally change, but only strengthened and gained in seriousness.
In short, the imperative of the founder was to enable adequate and comprehensive growth and development of adolescents, with an emphasis on healthy life values, so that one day we will be able to contribute to the local community and the state in its progress in various segments.
Thus, we began our adventure that lasts and has more than a hundred members, who operate throughout our country and abroad.
Considering that the entire development path is extremely important to us and that it represents the embodiment of our work, it is not possible to present it in this way. Therefore, we will write a short retrospective in the thesis, so if you want to know more about our team, you can write to us by e-mail.
Five years ago, after a decade of continuous and dedicated training, the selected team decided to bring their knowledge, skills and love for an active lifestyle and nature closer to the general public.
Thanks to good practice, which is characterized by a professional attitude towards people and the work we do, our tourist route has become a recognizable, interesting and desirable tourist product.
We are trying to introduce innovative and interactive contents into our offers through continuous education, which has enriched the tourist offer of the municipality of Priboj and put it on the list of attractive destinations for active holidays.
In short, it could be said that a stay on the Lim River and in the preserved landscape of Priboj rests and heals modern man, while getting acquainted with the cultural and historical heritage, both tangible and intangible, which our municipality abounds in, creates conditions for a perfect day. he remembers, retells and eagerly waits again.
In the last few years, the municipality of Priboj has recognized tourism as one of the priorities in the development of the local community and is investing intensively in creating conditions for the accelerated growth of this economic branch. Enviable successes have been achieved through the joint efforts of the local self-government, the tourist organization, but also the associations of citizens and businessmen. We are looking forward to new collaborations and adventures in the coming years, with the hope that we will show the untouched nature of Priboj in the best light, so that tourists return and spread positive stories to their family and friends, with whom they will visit us again.
Currently, the men's crew of the Rafting Club "Eko-Lim" is the state champion in the senior competition.
The biggest club achievements: The women's crew with 6 rowers (R6) won the first place in the overall ranking at the European Rafting Championship in 2019 in the category of juniors under 23. (3 gold and 1 silver medal - parallel sprint). At the 2019 European Championships, the men's crew achieved 5th place in the slalom category, 6th place in the downhill, 5th place in the sprint and 6th place in the parallel sprint, and 6th place in the overall standings. The men's crew took identical positions at the 2018 World Cup, so they were 5th in the overall standings. In the last three years, at most competitions at the national and international level, the men's crew has achieved notable results, while the women's crew is currently in the training phase at higher education institutions, and does not find room for competitions.
As a sign of gratitude and memory of our brother Aleksa Kojadinović (1997-2019), since 2019 we have been organizing a memorial rafting competition, which has an international character and gathers a large number of rafting teams from our country and region (National Championship, European Cup and University Championship). .
The aspiration of the men's crew is to perform under the Serbian flag at the World Rafting Championship in May 2022, where the best teams from all over the world are expected to arrive.
Under the leadership of the captain of the Rafting Club "Eko-Lim", licensed coach of the Rafting Association of Serbia and graduate master professor of physical education Uroš Puzović, we expect the brightest medals to shine on our chests!
To go to the World Cup, which is being organized in Banja Luka (Vrbas River) and Foča (Tara River), we are asking for the help of sponsors, so that we can provide the necessary equipment and participation costs.
Through numerous projects of national and international character, we have enabled a large number of our members to undergo training for guides and organizers of tourist rafting tours, all in cooperation with the leading organization in the world of rafting and water safety - International Rafting Federation (IRF).
Considering that our club has the most trained guides in the whole of Serbia and in the region, we tried to expand the acquired knowledge and form a water rescue team. The now well-coordinated team, which worked on securing European championships and European cups in rafting and kayaking on wild waters and various recreational events on the water, also provides support to the rescue services of Priboj municipality, and together we participate in rescuing people, animals and property. In addition to the above, we help search the terrain in cases of missing and injured people, on water surfaces and hard-to-reach mountain terrains.
In addition to sports associations, we are the founders of the environmental association "Eko-Lim", which for a decade of existence, cares about the banks of the Lim River and its tributaries, as far as we can, because the problem of pollution of the Lim River basin is an international issue. . With the hope and mission to raise the awareness of citizens about the importance of environmental protection, we are the organizers of numerous rafting environmental regattas, bearers and participants in environmental protection initiatives.
