Why should you train to be a sports leader?
Why should you want to attend a course where you can become a leader within sports? Isn't the sport and the activity all you need to know? It's not as easy as that, you have to have knowlegde about beeing a leader to becaome one. A sports club is organized for and trough it's members, this means that someone has to give of their time for other too get.
Until this course we believe that young people that has gotten the opportunity to develop their leader properties, has been asked because no one else within the club has given of their competence and time. If no one will stand by or have the skills to take over and develop the club there will be no activity in the future.
It's fun to be a leader. It is important, especially for the young leaders, to feel that they as well are running the club and that the board is listening to what they're saying. It's important that other members of the club see them as rolemodels because of their knowledge and that they listen to them. For others to listen you have to make them understand, this is not always easy. For the members and board of a club to listen you will have to have knowledge about leadership. This could make any sports club a better club.
