Stay and Play
SPARC - conducted by 18 Ltd, Nov 05- Sept 06
Why is there a trend of teenagers dropping out of sport and what can be done to make them stay and play? 16 key insights and 10 recommendations 10 Recommendations
1. Incorporate the non-competitive sport ethos into aspects of your sport / training – create an environment where ‘fun’, ‘having a go’ and ‘play’ are also acceptable.
2. Increase and support social aspects of clubs to make them more inclusive – bring friends on trips, invite mates to clubrooms and put on shared lunches.
3. Standardisation of treatment and conditions across ALL teams regardless of skill level.
4. Increase support of social leagues amongst teenagers, especially 15 – 20 year olds.
5. Parental involvement must be facilitated from coaches talking on the pitch to parent
only evenings to parent coaching sessions – attempt to get parents away from seeing sport as a chore or financial burden.
6. Respect ability – recognise and facilitate team structures for those who don’t want to be in the top team yet still want to participate.
7. Databases – encourage schools, codes and clubs to develop databases of players and share them thus creating an easy transition in the post-school arena.
8. Technology is a friend not a foe – use / encourage text messaging, regularly update websites with results and encourage ‘ownership’ through blogs, pictures, etc.
9. Maintain discipline – the boundaries of sport provide comfort and security but also embrace a model of communication where all participants get to have their say.
10. Keep mates together – outside the top 20% of participants sport is a social vehicle as much as it is a physical vehicle. View full research presentation...
