SAVEit to begin training programme for coaches on social values in sport
SAVEit project partners met in Gaia this week to discuss the next steps of the project, which are to implement and test the resources developed to create 'Leaders in Values' that can foster social values in grassroots sport.
Following the last meeting in London in July 2017, the SAVEit partners met earlier this week in Gaia to discuss the project’s main deliverables including a good practice guide that outlines sport initiatives that foster social values, an e-learning platform that will serve to form ‘Leaders in Values’ in sport and an innovative game to engage the youth to adopt fair play, respect, tolerance and other values in their day-to-day conduct.
The two-day meeting hosted by Portuguese football club Panther Force de Gaia focused on the approaches to take to implement and test the tools that will be used by coaches and youth athletes to foster social values, and how best to measure their impact.
The testing period is set to kick-off in March with Fundación Culturalista (Spain), KAS Eupen (Belgium) and Panther Force de Gaia (Portugal) carrying out activities within their clubs and youth teams. The initial pilot workshops in three European countries will target the involvement of 3,500 youth athletes and coaches.
The meeting was marked by the decision to publish the Guide of Good Practices in Sport in five other languages (French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish) in order to maximise its impact.
SAVEit is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and is a collaborative work between a consortium of organisation with extensive work in education, sport and social development tackling discrimination and prejudice.
The next project coordination meeting will take place in June in Belgium.
