Hosting sports and development events

The team at Sport and Exercise Dev SA have observed sports and development events closely over the years and we have developed a system to host them optimally each time.

Sport and Exercise Dev SA is constantly exploring different opportunities to use sports to improve the quality of human life. One effective way of doing this, as was evident with the recent International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, is by hosting sports and development events.

We have observed sports and development events closely over the years and we have developed a system to host them optimally each time. This is a process we suggest. Your technique may be different from the one described here. If it is, please share your technique the comment section below as we learn from you just as much as you learn from us.

This applies to the day of the event itself and not the broader organising of the event. We have found that a planned event runs smoothly and amounts to reduced risks, as opposed to a spontaneous event.

Sport and Exercise Dev SA suggests this technique for sports and development events and sports and recreation events. We wanted to share our technique with practitioners in sports and recreation to evaluate how other organisations host similar events.

We welcome your opinions and criticism. Please use the comment section to share your thoughts and suggestions.

This is the Sports and Exercise Dev SA technique for hosting sports and development events:

  • We start the day with a walk
  • Then follow up with group aerobics
  • Next we play dividing games
  • Followed by group games or team sports
  • Play different games or sports at different stations
  • Rotate or swap groups
  • Officially close the event
