WHAT IS SPORT3
Sport3 is a Canadian national program for youth to build better conversations. The program offers a unique game play methodology that focuses not on winning, but on fair play, gender equality, teamwork and respect.
By combining three key elements: fun, sport and communication, Sport3 empowers young people to take responsibility for their actions. Participants work collaboratively before, during and after a match through talking, listening and empathy.
The end result is a group of participants who can translate the elements into their everyday lives via improved confidence, mediation and conflict resolution strategies, and enriched life skills.

Well-being • Fun • Movement • Conversations
Sport3 is working to create awareness in the following emerging themes which resonate in a fast changing world, where youth are being bombarded with messaging and expectations that create stress and mental challenges. These themes are integrated in and facilitated through modules of: Leadership, Gender Equality, Peace Building, Social Awareness, Environment Conflict Resolution, and Health.
Ensuring that youth are supported in their engagement, and have a sense of belonging within the community they are in.
Access & Stability
Allowing for understanding that all youth have access to housing, food stability, health care, education and acceptance.
Allowing youth to interact, learn and hear from youth from all walks of life and cultures; enabling them to be inclusive of diverse points of view and have open discussions.
Becoming aware of the societal hierarchy and seeing the differences in cultures, social determinants, values and expectations.
Sport3’s 3-Step Process
Certified Sport3 facilitators utilize a three-step approach to create a fun, safe, and interactive learning experience. With guided team building, teachable moments draw from modules including leadership, equality (gender, cultural, economic), conflict resolution, relationship building, environmental perspectives, and health. Sessions wrap up with a facilitated debrief where shared experiences are explored, where positive conversation gives youth a voice.
