After 20 hours of online classes, participants attend a course, led by Carlos Rios, Virgilio Pires, Carlos Luiz Barroso and José Eduardo Amancio, members of the Brazilian National Championships Executive Committee.
During the course, students discussed theoretical concepts as well as case studies that allowed them to review methodologies, the role assignments, sport ethics, sport law and security at events.

In Virgilio Pires’ view, the course was vital to the tournament´s management. “We strongly reinforced that is essential to have good judgment when solving problems.

We hope everyone can take this experience to their respective states and apply their knowledge to the regional tournaments,” said Barroso.
