Social sports are still sports, only in a less formal way or it is mainly for the sake of participation, engagement, and fun. Social sports organisations are becoming more and more of a thing here in Australia.
It is a way for people in a community to get together, interact, and stay active. The idea is to start an organisation that will schedule, manage, and launch friendly sporting events or competitions. For example, a small rugby competition in a suburb.So, if you have an idea in mind, here is your step by step guide on how to do it.
Step 1: Choose a sport
This is important. Make sure that you pick a sport that will get many people eager to participate. Here in Australia, the biggest ones are football and rugby of course. So, it’s not going to be very hard to find people who know how to play the game. But you can opt-out with other sports, maybe basketball or even golf.
Step 2: Gather money and people to help you out
You can’t do this by yourself, especially when it comes to money. So, you are going to need some help. Make sure to first gather people to help you promote this organisation and gather the necessary resources for it.
In terms of money, this can be a bit challenging, but you can ask for donations from the community. Don’t set a price, just give them the option to contribute or not.
Step 3: Establish a communication platform
You must be in constant communication with the other members of the organisation. That is why it is important to establish a communication line between everyone. You can simply do this with online messaging applications. This will make communication and coordination much easier.
Step 4: Inform the community
With the organisers and objectives in place, it is now time to inform the community about the organisation and what exciting things are ahead. It might take some time to tell everyone in the community about it.
So, you can resort to usual marketing strategies like online digital marketing and even post up posters all over the area. People are bound to hear about it.You just need a good volume of people to know about it and they’ll take care of the rest for you.
Step 5: Plan your first-ever event
The last one, plan your first-ever event. This will allow you to see if people in the community will be engaged or not. Make sure to have fun with it.
