Sunday, 24th of September –  “Change” Workshop:
This is an inspiring workshop on change processes within the WSF and its members. It raises the question: How do we build competitive and relevant sports organizations to enable long term development? Pandemic, energy crises, economic challenges and sedentary lifestyle are just a few examples of societal challenges that affect sports. How does the WSF tackle current challenges?
Please note: The participation is only possible in-person at the Meeting Area. In case you are not registered yet but still want to attend, please register here.

Monday, 25th of September: internal closed meetings only

Tuesday, 26th of September is open for everyone! 
First on the agenda is the Season Kick-Off. There clear facts for the coming season will be provided. Followed by another training session of the new WSF LiveHeats Event-Management-System, which will be run by our partner LiveHeats. In this Training session you will receive all necessary information and training, how to submit/register an event to the WSPL and the World Rookie Rank for the upcoming season. For everyone who didn’t join the first training session, we strongly recommend to join this one!
