Active kids do better in school and in life. When fun options for physical activity are available before, during and after school, kids perform better academically and socially. When children move more, they become part of a more vibrant, healthier future for themselves, their families and all of Brazil. With that knowledge, it’s shocking to learn Brazil’s children are the least active in Latin America. Today, they have few opportunities to move throughout the day.

In 2013, multiple organisations (NGOs, government agencies and corporations) came together to get kids moving before, during and after school. The result is a 3-year pilot where everyone has a role. This is our chance, collectively, to shape a new path forward. One that inspires a new, physically active generation of Brazilians. Over the next three years, we aim to get kids active and also build a solution that can be applied throughout Brazil. That cannot be done without you, the coach.

This reference guide is a framework to help you and other coaches in community-based programmes deliver early positive experiences in sport before and after school.
