Playing at Athletics: the combination of fun and sports is at the heart of the Joy of moving method. And this induction program has already involved 3,000 children from 71 Primary schools. Activities include running, jumping and throwing. And the children are taught to have fun, but also to achieve levels that allow them to compete and, as they grow older, to become involved in the second stage of the program: Divertiendose con el Atletismo, or Having Fun with Athletics. This second programme is specifically tailored for young teenagers aged 13 to 15, and leads them towards an introduction to an athletic club.
