The European Fair Play Movement launched its Fair Play Card toolbox on World Fair Play Day
The Fair Play Card is an inexpensive and excellent pedagogical resource especially for young athletes
It will be an efficient tool to fight negative influences in sports We are sure it will help sport leaders, coaches, teachers, but also athletes, in one word all people contributing to raise youngsters to move them beyond the “winning is everything” philosophy, which is, unfortunately, so common in sport today. We would like to encourage more organizations, sports events to adapt the Fair Play Card idea and influence the practice of sports with fair play. It is an inexpensive and excellent pedagogical resource especially for young athletes to encourage them to take the right decisions – in the spirit of fair play – on and off the sportsfield, even if it means taking a tough decision. Instead of punishing wrong behavior with yellow, red or black cards, why don’t we embark on rewarding taking the right decisions with Fair Play Cards? When we need to punish, it is too late. We need to start one step before that, with positive education.
