Society & Culture
Young people regularly make up the majority of regional and rural sports clubs, yet often aren’t included in any of the decision-making. So 16-year-old athlete Louis Janssen (she/he/they) decided to join their local club’s committee, leading her to create a junior committee for young representatives too. Louis shares how often for young athletes it’s not that they’re actively excluded from leadership, adults just don’t even consider that they’d be interested – and how to change that in your own club.
