Soccer, new friendships and lots of fun. Reyes de Barrio (RDB), a program of the Luksic Foundation’s Sports area, is opening a new application process for this year, which will be available online throughout February on our website.
Reyes de Barrio is a program that seeks to contribute through free soccer schools to the social and educational integration of these children. Currently these are developed in 12 communes of the Metropolitan Region: El Bosque, Estación Central, Independencia, La Florida, La Pintana, Lo Prado, Peñalolén, Pudahuel, Puente Alto, Renca and San Miguel.
In order to participate in the sports training, boys and girls must meet the following requirements: be enrolled in a free educational establishment, live in the commune or sector where the selected school operates and be born between 2010 and 2013.
“We would like to invite all children to participate in this application process for Reyes de Barrio, where they can have fun on the fields, learn new techniques with the ball and meet new friends,” said Jaime Pizarro, director of the Luksic Foundation’s Sports area.
To enroll in the program, a responsible adult must go to www.reyesdebarrio.cl and complete the following form. Once the application is completed, a member of the Reyes de Barrios team will contact you to provide more information to continue with the registration process in person at one of the courts.
Beyond the practice with the ball, Reyes de Barrio works under three fundamental pillars: to provide a space for recreation and leisure for boys and girls in order to develop physical activity through the practice of soccer. Also, to promote among the participating families the adoption of conscious and healthy habits that will help them to improve their quality of life.
On the other hand, to contribute and support families in positive parenting based on the teaching of parenting skills that prevent and reduce problems within the home, in addition to facing challenges when communicating with children. During 2021, more than 650 students between 7 and 13 years of age participated in face-to-face trainings in different schools in the Metropolitan Region.
