By joining forces, the members of the aforementioned non-governmental organizations will address the issues regarding development of sports and related activities.
Thus, the tasks of the five joined federations are development of mass sports, popularization of sport, promotion of physical culture and healthy lifestyle.
Besides, the Confederation is engaged in development of the high performance sport which requires much more resources and efforts and a complex and systematic approach, especially regarding the issues of preparation and training of promising athletes who are able to take prize places at the national and world championships.

In order to fulfill them, the cooperation with trade unions and sports veterans associations is strengthened for ensuring all-round support of sportsmen, trainers and referees.
