In the field of education, i.e., in everyday school life, the core competencies of graduates are found. Learning about one’s own body and discovering it is a pedagogically important part of child and youth development.
If it is about the design and execution of the faculty, in particular in social competence, the Sport and Movement Sciences make a significant contribution. As a result, areas such as self-awareness and self-determination are formed. This allows social skills to bear fruit.
Participation in sports can significantly enhance teamwork skills, promoting effective communication and facilitating the development of a broad range of social skills, such as team building and collaboration. In their psychological development, young people thus experience a mental and professional expansion, which ultimately leads to greater self-confidence and affirmation.
