We learned from years of exploration and experience of grassroots sports work that only if people’s enthusiasm to participate in sports has been activated and the mass sports association and guidance stations of the whole county have been well established, can we manipulate the main work of group work and open a new look of urban and rural groups.Up to now, we have established 18 associations and 93 public fitness guide sites, covering all villages and towns around the county.We have trained and cultivated more than 240 social athletes. And a group of social athletes have grown up after Xiongjian participated as candidates in the selection of the country's most beautiful sports people organized by the state general administration of sport. We will strengthen evaluation of sport associations and squeeze some money from limited financial resources each year to assist the associations, so as to promote mass sport toward a higher level.

In order to strengthen the construction of rural mass sports brands and the characteristics of local sports events, the government have launched "one township, one brand" group brand building activity, and mainly initiated such projects as forest drifting, red mud sports meeting, home-stay culture festival sports meeting and outdoor hiking, etc.,so as to accelerate the integrated development of sports and tourism and to build a larger sports industry.
