Multisport day at school

An activity organized in cooperation with the primary school: “Multisport days”.
This activity can bring an innovative approach to the sport involvement of the pupils, an access to less accessible sports/marginal sports and an added value, enrichment to the physical education lessons.

  • Period: throughout the year
  • Hours: 40
  • Participants: up to 75
  • Sports considered: 10+ sport games focused on teambuilding, gamesomeness, skilfulness and nimbleness (archery, parkour, wu-shu/kung-fu, beach volleyball, dance (hip-hop and street dance), jumping – rope, elastic, athletics, Zumba, skateboard).

Success or innovation factors

  • Synergy in cross-sectorial cooperation – youth workers from the organizing organization with the coaches;
  • Diversity of sports;
  • Experienced team;
  • Previous experience of cooperation;
  • Sport a a non-formal education tool;
  • Non-formal education as an objective in the multisport activity;
  • Opportunities for follow-up – workshop, event (opportunity to explore the sport more, follow the personal interest and not necessarily as a regular sport activity or joining the specific sport club).

Methodological approach

Methodology is based on a getting to know activity – of the sport, main competences, see the introduction and practice different skills, connect the physical skills with the competences, learn the broader context of the sport and its rules, reflect on own development.

Methodology is based also on the cooperation of the organizers with the coaches to create the inspiring and motivating environment where the kids feel safe to explore and learn, challenge themselves and mostly enjoy. The methodology has a strong base on non-formal education, communication and learning process. The multisport activity is still guided through the non-formal educational structure. The methodology is focused on joy, motivation, interest and active participation of the kids.

Rotation system can be considered in terms of sports.

Potential risks

  • In terms of interest and follow-up – costs;
  • Time framework: not always possible within the school year;
  • Presence of more sports and risk of not suitable weather.

Replicability / Opportunity for future use

  • Create the structure of sport introduction activities followed by workshops;
  • Less hours allowing involvement of more kids in “introduction activity”;
  • Combination of non-formal education and known sports and introduction and practice of marginal sports;
  • Added value for different areas of the schools;
  • Long-term implementation with different adjustments according to the local reality (community – village, school, class, camp, etc.);
  • Many possible networking activities and connections of activities and events which might promote the “multisport culture” in general;
  • High interest and motivation of the community, among kids and also among schools.


Some preparatory activities to be considered:

  • Meeting with the schools to organize the suitable format;
  • Meetings to develop the concept and prepare activities;
  • Meetings with the coaches;
  • Map of activities (outdoor, indoor, weather options, team division);
  • Evaluation plan;
  • Conclusions and follow-up plan.
