ORTEGA, Gema; FRANCO, Jorge; GIMENEZ, Javier  and  JIMENEZ, Pedro. The white card fundación Realmadrid: An educative proposal through basketball competition. CPD [online]. 2012, vol.12, suppl.1, pp.37-40. ISSN 1989-5879.

The competition in initiation to sport is an excellent learning environment for players, and a great opportunity for teachers to enhance knowledge and attitudes transmitted. Therefore, from Fundación Realmadrid Basketball Schools, specifically from the project "For a REAL Education: Values and Sport" (Realmadrid Foundation, 2012), we have focused our efforts on developing a tool that could exploit the potential competition on an educative way. Through our competition model, which is based on the demonstration of good behaviors and the appearance of positive values, we decided to implement the White Card program. This program, which began to develop in the 2010-2011 season, is a form of recognition to all players which demonstrate positive attitudes and behaviors during the competition. Our goal is to foster the emergence of these desirable behaviors, revealing the students which of their actions are worthy or deserving to be valued positively. In turn, we believe that with this proposal our teachers also are strengthened and hopefully motivated because they will be encouraged to observe and discover the behaviors that may be capable of being awarded. As most relevant data we want to mention that in our Tournament latest edition have been awarded a total of 308 behaviors leading to educational level over a total of 358 participants, demonstrating the presence and relevance of our competition program.
