WHAT IS IT?
An end-to-end journey as a participant or volunteer at a typical University sports club, followed by a workshop to share our learnings.
We take you through a participants journey.
You actively participate in a sports experience.
We share our learnings & actions, together.
The trick is, we will let you will experience it all...
The good, and the bad.
WHY FOCUS ON 'THE EXPERIENCE'?
The experiences we provide across our sports plays a hugely significant role in whether people want to get involved in our clubs, in what ways, and for how long.
Research and our own experiences often tell us that the experience we offer plays a large role in recruiting participants and volunteers, their retention, and our reputation. So in this Immersion workshop we are focusing on the experiences you are promoting and providing - to help us all influence:
More people signing up to our clubs as participants and volunteers
More participants and volunteers wanting to stay involved with your sport
More members sharing their positive experiences with other people
And, more people motivated to bring other people to your club.
So for all these reasons, we would like to invite you to this 'Sport Experience Immersion' Workshop, where you will participate in a typical sporting experience, learning practical lessons that you can take away and use.
WHAT DOES 'AN IMMERSION' MEAN??
We want to ensure you walk away from this event having learnt something that you can apply, and we all know that we all learn best by actually experiencing something.
So, we are about to immerse you in an active sporting experience, the communications before it, and an active experience on the day.
We also know that we need actionable learnings, so after you participate in the activity, we will workshop ways that you can apply these learnings in your own work.
Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn
OK, SO WHAT IS ACTUALLY INVOLVED?
The workshop, the on-the-day experience, and the communications you will receive prior to the day are being facilitated by Sport Experience Design, in collaboration with Adelaide University Sport.
You will experience what it’s like to be a participant in your sport, or a volunteer for your club, which may not be new to you, but, it is always valuable to understand what it feels like to be involved with your club from their perspective, and the influence that has on you.
What is special, and a little bit different is that you will participate in a good, and sometimes not-so-good experience, so that you get a genuine feeling for what it’s like to walk in the shoes of a participant who gets a good, or a bad experience in our sports.
The trick is, we won’t tell you when you’re getting a good or bad experience leading up to the session, or during it, but we will look forward to hearing your perspectives when we workshop it afterwards!
In the second half of the event, we will all take part in a workshop to share our experiences, our learnings, and some actions to take away and use in our work.
YOUR EXPERIENCE STARTS NOW...
Express your interest below, and then over the coming weeks leading up to our event, you will receive information from us.
THANKS FOR PLAYING along!
