Sport is an important activity for youth with opportunities to socialise and build friendship among young people. AKO organises soccer tournaments twice a year especially during New Year celebration and the Wrist Tying ceremony. Many teams register and played against each other to win the AKO cup. Not only Karen community teams but also teams from other local ethnic groups participated in these sport events. Indoor volleyball and cane ball matches, mini track and field are also organised for community in celebrating major events. Fun event and outing activities are also organised occasionally to bring the community together.
