Recycle versus development
« on: September 16, 2021, 09:03:52 PM »
Very interesting phenomena I am observing in most of our athletic programs.There seems to be a reliance on recycling athletes who have past their prime. Witness the make up of our recent olympic team, our netball team, and national football teams.

What is this trend indicating about our athletic programs? Look at our neighbours JA- is li,e they have an athletic factory.

We had  7 years since 2014 to develop formidable players  for the some s national team yet we are  looking at veterans to anchor this team? Look at the shift and success of Canada's menand womens team- youthful and successful.
How do we get there?

Do we  have money to start a developmental program ? Everybody want superstars, but don't want to pay the price to develop these superstars.
