All our projects are managed based on the principles of the sport3 methodology. This methodology is order for the learning process to occur on the field of play, so that young people are attracted to the joyful nature of the sport.
In the first “half” young people define the rules, the second “half” is the game itself and the third “half” there is a debate on the application of the rules on the playing field. The final score is the sum of goals scored with points awarded according to the game formula established in the first half.
This methodology can be applied to any sport and teams must be mixed, where boys and girls mix without distinction. Another difference is that there are no referees so young people have to develop the ability of negotiate and make agreements. The idea is to take the weight of competitiveness, causing the two teams to play together for the same goal.
Understanding the methodology sport3
1st Half – Agreements
Young people define the rules and how to score it, always directing the decisions for values such as solidarity, respect, honesty and cooperation. The debate is free and supervised by mediators and educators who do not seek to interfere in the dialogue. Each game has a different rule and the compliance with the agreements directly influences the outcome of the game.
2nd Half – Game
Boys and girls go to the field of play and make the game joyful. The games that use sport3 methodology are dynamic and fun. The goals, baskets or points at this stage are not decisive, since the fulfillment of the agreements reached in the first half has a large weight in the result. This game formula makes the team technically better prepared not always the winner.
3rd Time – Scoring
Participants meet to evaluate their actions during the game. It is a moment of reflection to understand whether the rules have been complied with during the game. The winning team is determined by the goals / points scored in the game field and the sum of the objectives agreed by the application of the social values.
