The workshop will address the main features of this model and the research evidence that support it. The main characteristics are to maintain the essential characteristics of formal sport (competition, festivity, affiliation, etc.), adding pedagogical strategies such as the assignment of responsibilities through roles, and the modification of the content to be appropriate to the development of the students.This model allows kids to have an authentic sport experience within PE lessons.

If the student lives an authentic sports experience, is educated in the competition and obtains meaningful and positive learning, he is more likely to be involved for life in the sport, being one of the main objectives of the model.
