Quality sport experiences include developmentally appropriate rules. This session will outline the relationship of meaningful competition with the rules of the event, game or tournament. Do the rules in your sport and in competition reinforce the long-term athlete development stage priorities? Sport leaders including board members, officials, and coaches will understand that rules are important for safety and fairness but also for athlete development.
Competition is an important part of the sport experience. Finding the right competition experiences are critical to positive athlete and team development. This session will introduce the concept of meaningful competition and how sport leaders can examine their competition structures and formats through a meaningful competition lens.
