B-RIGHT offers coaches and physical education instructors to introduce short, simple and easy-to-use basketball exercises that can be applied both in formal settings and during training. It is specially designed for children aged 9-12, but can be easily adapted for younger or older participants. This program based on a creative interdisciplinary methodology, seeks to combine sport and human rights issues, not neglecting sports skills development.

As part of the program, the first seminar for physical education teachers and basketball coaches was held in October in Cyprus. Through participation, the children had the opportunity to learn short and simple basketball exercises, which can be implemented either as part of the official school curriculum, or as part of training in basketball academies, while educating on the issues of protection of children's rights.

The best education for a child is to be informed about their rights and the ways to use them.

The Children’s Commissioner, the Parimatch Foundation and Players for Peace in Cyprus have launched the B-RIGHT project to implement a human rights-based sports initiative.

Although traditional sports practices offer children an environment for developing physical, psychomotor and social skills, increasing self-confidence, team work and relationship skills, these practices, however, have ignored a possibility of introducing a human rights-based approach into societies developing projects. There is evidence that a traditional sports field has not always been a safe and supportive environment for children: child athletes report increased levels of anxiety, experiences of physical, mental or sexual abuse in the sports arena, and/or group alienation and stigmatization.

B-RIGHT curriculum includes a number of activities that provide children with the opportunity to:
• gain knowledge and critical understanding of the universality, inalienability and indivisibility of the rights of the child
• create attitudes that promote respect for children's rights
• acquire the skills necessary to defend your rights, ensure their protection and development during sports.
