Johan Cruyff Foundation: sport and healthy habits
JOHAN CRUYFF FOUNDATION
Helping boys and girls to have a healthy future
The collaboration between the Barça Foundation and the Johan Cruyff Foundation began in 2015 in order to promote the social integration of children and young people, especially those at risk of social exclusion, through the practice of healthy habits
One of the outcomes of this collaboration is the Cruyff Courts program in Catalonia. These are small football fields that are available for free and serve to promote sport among children and young people and for this activity to instill values such as responsibility, self-improvement, integration, teamwork and education in healthy habits, such as the prevention of tooth decay and childhood obesity.
It is very important to work with children between 6 and 15 years old because this is the stage when they are growing intellectually
