Skateboarding at the Rafa Nadal Foundation Center in Valencia

At the Rafa Nadal Foundation Center in Valencia, we are always looking for innovative ways to engage and empower the children and adolescents in our program.

Recently, we had the pleasure of organizing a special activity in collaboration with the URBANS Sports Club, which has just arrived in Nazaret and operates its school at the Sports Center.

The activity? Skateboarding

Collaborating with the URBANS Sports Club has allowed us to introduce skateboarding to all the beneficiaries of our program. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. We’ve already had several sessions, and the enthusiasm from the children and adolescents has been palpable.

What makes this activity particularly special is how it complements our existing program. While our primary focus is on education and social competencies, incorporating sports like skateboarding allows us to expand our reach and provide holistic development opportunities for the children and adolescents.

During these sessions, we have witnessed moments of growth and development. As the children and adolescents tackle the challenges of learning skateboarding techniques and tricks, they are also developing vital life skills such as determination, courage, and resilience. It is inspiring to see each participant approach these challenges with strength and determination, reinforcing their ability to overcome obstacles and handle frustration.

Beyond the physical aspect, skateboarding fosters a sense of community and camaraderie among the children and adolescents. They support and encourage each other, creating a positive and inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and accepted.

At the Rafa Nadal Foundation, our mission extends far beyond the boundaries of traditional education. We believe in the power of sports to transform lives and instill values that will serve these children and adolescents in the future. Through initiatives like the skateboarding activity with the URBANS Sports Club, we are not just teaching skills; we are cultivating character and values for the next generation.

We continue to integrate sports into our program, witnessing the continued growth and development of the children and adolescents we serve. By collaborating with different partners, such as the URBANS Sports Club, we are building a brighter future for the youth of Valencia, one champion kickflip!
