A reflection from soccer…………………
We had our first neighbourhood soccer game on Sunday at a local park. The game went well, people had fun, and everyone agreed it would be great to do every Sunday morning.
The group discussed what time to start each week, what the competition was doing (under 10 years Australian Football League games and other neighbourhood soccer teams) and how to recruit more talent to the team.
Our brave organiser – the game was organised by one of our neighbours – was quite rightly concerned about whether people would continue to come.
And here’s where the accountability bit comes in….
Someone remembered a friendly soccer game they used to run in London. They said that after some very poor attendances, the team set up a scoring system with one of the scores being for attendance. The scores were shared with everyone on the team after each week’s game.
