The mission of WATS is to eradicate violence from sport and to rescue the authentic values of sport.
Last two years, we have analyzed the sport ecosystem, working together with different clubs, federation and national institutions.
WATS methodology was created at Mondragon Team Academy (Mondragon University), an internationally leading educational organization that we belong to. Our inheritance methodology comes from Finland, where Tiimiakatemia has revolutionized for 25 years the educational model, training people by competences through their passions. We find a lot of similarities between this educational model based on passions and learning through competences, and the sport world. Thus, we believe that sport without violence is possible, sport that trains in values, that excites young people, that allows us to enjoy its learnings, and above all, that trains for life. A healthy sport without violence means a healthy society without violence.
