Research Impact: A quasi-experimental pre- and post-test mixed-methods design was followed, with a total of 163 preservice teachers from three different countries (Spain Chile and Mexico) to compare the impact of the experience of learning to teach sport education. The dialogical nature of the approach and the mini-season structure allowed the preservice teachers to achieve a better understanding of the pedagogy of sport education and to optimize their motivation to use it in the future. Nevertheless, the rigidity of the national curriculum and the custodial nature of school reality, present strong barriers to this end.
