Voltinha da USP also has open enrollment for children from 5 years old

The 6th Voltinha da USP will take place on October 22, with departures at various times according to the age group of the participants, which goes from 5 to 12 years old. In addition to the USP community, it is open to the general public, and seeks to encourage the discovery of the pleasure of moving, expanding the capacity for body expression.

In addition, by offering a variety of challenging environments that go beyond the act of running, Voltinha proposes to stimulate the imagination regarding other ways of moving the body. It also favors, through experience, cognitive, motor and social development, strengthening habits that transcend to other stages of life.
