kids deciding between sport and Fortnite

…  Coaching — coaches — need to modify. Adapt.

Wayne Goldsmith:

“The experience we’re giving kids is generally out of touch with what they want. The default setting of the majority of coaches around the world still is to be predominantly physically-based and repetition-based, telling kids to do laps and yell times. That’s not coaching, connecting, inspiring.

“My strong belief is that the solution to turning around the falling numbers playing competitive sport is to change coaching. To make it more relationship-based and experience-based.”

Fortnite is not sport’s enemy — outdated coaching is


Thanks Brett.
