Urban Sports as Social Inclusion 

Not many years ago, urban sports were considered leisure activities with which to spend time, mainly carried out by young people. However, the increase in the number of spectators and players led to a rapid development of professional competitions. Therefore, they are already considered as sports that can be included in the Olympic Games


The practice of Urban sports, in addition to physical activity, involves a series of rules and/or regulations to be carried out within a given space or area, and where the physical and technical capacity of the competitor is the primary basis for determining the result.

Urban sport increases self-esteem, skills, and abilities, giving them the opportunity to take responsibility for their own health, serves as an occupation of free time, promoting the acceptance of rules and standards, facilitating the transmission of educational values such as effort, perseverance, team spirit and can be use as tool for social inclusion.
