SPARCs for Good is a pro-social wellness web-app that is designed to help users (athletes) create and strengthen healthy relational skills and habits though the completion of SPARC3s (Small Positive Acts that Reset our Course, Commitments and Connections).
SPARCs are designed to improve athlete’s relationship to themselves (peaceful mind), others (supportive tribe), and life (meaningful activity). As athletes complete SPARC3s they share this information with other athletes through text, pictures, videos and URLs to increase social supports. Athletes also receive points that can be connected to competitive games (tournaments') and financial incentives (fund raising for clubs or charities).
