On the 11th and 12th of July took place the 4th meeting of the NOVISPORT programme in Granollers, Spain.
On the first day of the meeting, all project partners shared their experiences while implementing NOVIS in their own activities and explained the current state of their project implementation. Afterwards, the participants received input from Marc Villa Pozo, a Sports Psychologist, who explained how prejudices, group dynamics and different perceptions can lead to violence in sports. Villa Pozo presented recommendations that can be useful for the day-to-day work of the project partners. Oscar Orellana, Assistant Coach at FC Barcelona Basketball, highlighted later on how important it is to work towards a clear goal and showed the influence of role models.
The second day of the meeting saw an analysis of the current activities of the project partners. The representatives of the different clubs and organisations agreed on several aspects of the methodology. The methodological guide for coaches, teachers and practitioners will be finalised soon. All project partners will contribute to the final document by sharing ideas, tools, and best practices.
