Planning, managing, and organising a sports event is no straightforward task. Whether it be a Street Basket Tournament or a Skate League, the tips bellow will help you put on a sports event that is fun, efficient, and most of all safe.

1. Prepare a detailed plan

Plan well. To do so, you need to have experts on board. Get a team of reliable volunteers and specialists.

Some of the items you need to address in this stage include:

  • The goal of the event
    • Type of event (one sport, multisport)
    • Coverage of the event (local, regional, national, international)
    • Level of competition (amateur, professionals)
    • Group Age (four youngsters, four adults, etc.)
    • Form of participation (be invitation, be registration)
    • Target participants (students, employees, open, etc.)
  • Its feasibility
  • Laws regulating such events
  • Length of time (e.g. one day, a few days, a week, and so on)
  • A rough estimate of the budget
  • Estimated number of participants
  • Identify potential sponsors if you need some
