Get children moving through play

Our Joy of Moving programme is designed to inspire active lifestyles in children, aiming to teach children how to enjoy moving through play, and to help them develop positive habits for adulthood. 
 
The games and activities are based on our unique Joy of Moving methodology, developed by independent parties, including Foro Italico (Rome University) and the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI). This approach inspires children to move through play whilst developing key skills in four major areas: physical fitness, motor coordination, cognitive functions and creativity and life skills.  
 
To find out how you can get involved with your family at home, take a look through our games and activities and help to spread the Joy of Moving.
