Everyone who is accepted needs to submit a limited register extract from the police's crime register in good time before the training starts. It is a requirement Sports Heart has because we work with children.



The week begins with one day of lectures by top educators, which will take place digitally this summer due to Covid-19, followed by one day of group work when the leaders are divided according to their chosen sport. Then there are five days of mentor-led practice during the Sports Heart Camp. The training ends with a half-day summation of the experiences we have become richer. After completing the training, everyone is awarded the Sports Heart Certificate in social leadership and becomes part of the Sports Heart Network where the leaders are invited to network meetings.


The training in what we call social leadership complements the physical, technical and tactical aspects of sports with knowledge of the psychological, social and emotional parts that the individual needs to create a positive and enduring relationship with his sportsmanship.

Motivation is what drives us forward from birth. It plays a decisive role in schooling, working life and sports. Through knowledge of individuals' motivational patterns, it is possible to design environments, for example training groups, associations or other organizations, in ways that increase the probability of good performance.
Therefore, our training in social leadership rests on what we in modern sports psychology research call the motivation model. The model describes how the sports environment is designed so that as many children and young people as possible thrive and develop as well as thereby remain in sports. It also means that it is the business model that generates the most top athletes.
