Wayne Goldsmith believe we need to reinvent sporting competition:
How to turn your sport into a New Sport:
- Make your competitions shorter;
- Make your competitions more enjoyable;
- Provide something relevant and meaningful for all participants in your sport: not just for the could-be-champions;
- Be inclusive of families and their needs, their schedules, their time limitations;
- Listen to your clients and respond to their needs.
