D. Organizational skills

Proper organization is a key to success. Especially in demanding projects, such as an FFS initiative. Of course, this is no different than any other project, but it is imperative that you are adequately prepared in order to keep up with the quality standards of your sports club or organization. Here are a few tips to make your life easier:


For sure this is nothing new, but it is always worth repeating! Adequate preparation is the first step to success and you need to invest a lot of effort in this process.


(a) Participant’s profile

Devote some time in exploring the profile of your FFS participants. List down their characteristics, try txo understand their needs and sense the dynamic of your team. This step is important not only to adjust your training process according to this information, but also for you to prepare yourself and know what to expect.



(b) The training process

The FFS concept for sure has a very specific nature and unique characteristics. Your regular training methods might not be appropriate in their previous form so you need to adjust them to the new circumstances. Make the necessary changes, enrich your training process with everything required to support your work and customize the training structure according to your team’s needs. In the end of this process, make sure that you are confident to deliver the new training program and deal with anything that might come up.
