In the course of the day, during the competitions we experience different feelings on the part of the children; joy for winning, some cried with joy for winning, while others cried with sadness for losing, there were few children who expressed frustration during the game, when their team was losing, but we always tried to see for the good of the children in encouraging them and Motivate them, our job as educators is to guide and teach them to reflect, to know how to lose and win in a game and without forgetting the importance of respecting the rules of the game, referees and the opposing team.
