Sport Has to Change and Here’s How to Change It (Podcast)

There is no doubt sport around the world has to change.

It is irrefutable that the number of kids playing traditional forms of organized competitive sport has not just fallen, in some sports it’s totally collapsed.

In response, sporting organizations have tried a standard set of responses to try and boost their participation statistics and none of them have worked.

The basic issue is this:

Kids – and families are NOT walking away from sport. There’s nothing wrong with sport.

It’s the way we’ve been delivering sport – the way coaches, officials, administrators and parents have been delivering the experience of sport – that’s causing the problems.

This podcast looks at the big issues in the falling sport participation rates and presents some simple, practical and effective ways of turning things around.
