The CICEE-T upon recognizing sport coaches as first responders to interpersonal violence in sport, focuses on their education in a culture-friendly way that increases the chances of endorsing the Safe Sport concept and delivering Safe Sport praxis in cultures situated in southern EU.
When Safe Sport ideas are frankly translated into a country’s language without adaptations to its culture, chances for these to be efficiently implemented and transferred to the participants via the coaching practice are weakened.
To develop the CICEE-T e-toolbox, the partners employ the ADDIE model (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation).
The main activities that CICEE-T partners will carry out are:
Mapping of Safe Sport coach education initiatives of the Mediterranean Region partners topped with qualitative / quantitative research on Safe Sport cultural barriers manifested in the societies and sport of partner countries along with the beliefs that formulate coaches’ attitudes and intentions for receiving Safe Sport coach education and delivering Safe Sport coaching in the partner countries.
Design and development of e-toolbox, containing digital culturally informed coach education on Safe Sport for the prevention of violence in sport, an evaluation system for its education outcomes and a monitoring system for its use.
Pilot the e-toolbox within the CICEE-T partner countries to implement, evaluate and refine the e-toolbox.
MOVING THE NEEDLE
The main output of CICEE-T project is digital Safe Sport coach education, evaluation, and monitoring, packaged in a e-toolbox with 6 versions. The CICEE-T partners anticipate moving the needle via embracing diversity and using cultural nuances in combating interpersonal violence in sport.
The project will deliver new knowledge on the development and implementation of Safe Sport coach education that is meaningful and applicable to the sport context of partner countries and a stepwise culture-sensitive methodological approach that may be of use to the international community in the fight against interpersonal violence in sport.
