"Playing outside should be a subject at school", said Johan Cruyff once. So the Cruyff Foundation came up with a relatively simple solution. Schoolyard14 makes school schoolyards an attractive place to play again by giving the school and the schoolchildren the opportunity to pick their own playing fields, which take the form of lines and coloured areas (coatings) applied to the ground and walls. Some examples are an athletics track, a playing circle, or a goal on the wall. This stimulates children to play in a natural way.
The Cruyff Foundation gives children in both regular and special education space to sport and play together both during and after school.
In addition to the schoolyard, Schoolyard14 ensures that you can fully utilise the schoolyard by providing a preparatory lesson package, a sports package, a games box and a sign with the 14 rules. Read more about it under Schoolyard14 process.
