In recent years, Due to the pandemic, about 25-35% of young people – depending on the age group – have stopped playing sports.This is a worrying fact that should prompt all working realities in the world of sport, starting with institutions, to commit to an increased determination to promote physical and sports activity for younger generations, from for their physical and psychological well-being.
