The Cruyff Foundation helps children move up by being active. We focus on the physical development, but also on the mental development of both children and young people. The Heroes of the Cruyff Courts programme was developed to meet both these needs.

The goal of Heroes of the Cruyff Courts is to turn young people into role models for their neighbourhood and get them involved with the community and the Cruyff Court in the long term. The project trains Cruyff Foundation Coaches, who then coach young people to organise a sports event for children in the community.

By organising events, the young people are given an opportunity to discover and develop their talents while also being challenged to try something new.
