During the second annual Stanford Graduate School of Business Sports Innovation Conference, leaders from all corners of the sports world gathered to share their insights on pushing the boundaries of the industry. From building winning traditions on the backbone of technology to harnessing the dynamics between fan and franchise, teams must have a thirst for innovation to compete — both on the field and in people’s hearts — in the 21st century. Here are a few of the trends that are shaping the future of sports, today.

Virtual Training is Becoming Reality Virtual training has always been more fantasy than reality in sports. Attempts to train football players with virtual reality, or VR, “has been going on for 20 years,” said Stanford head football coach David Shaw. “All of them have failed; all of them have been terrible.” But the team behind STRIVR Labs, a product of Stanford’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab, may have cracked the code.

Pokemon Go: A glimpse at the future of technology and physical literacy - Active For Life | Active For Life. Pokemon is once again sweeping the world by storm. Pokemon Go is a free smartphone app that brings the fantasy world of Pokemon into our world. Just like some of us did on our GameBoys when we were kids, players roam the world in search of these colourful creatures in a quest to “catch ‘em all”. But this time, players aren’t engaging with a screen and using only their fingers and thumbs. The CBC has a good description of the craze, and what it amounts to is that players are getting out into the real world, using their feet and legs to walk or cycle their towns and cities, capturing Pokemon that might be around the corner, or in the next block. So how does Pokemon Go relate to physical literacy, and by extension our health and wellness? While it is a very new app (with a few hiccups, including safety and privacy concerns), Pokemon Go has, so far, been wildly popular.

More people have downloaded Pokemon Go than are using Instagram and Snapchat, and it’s approaching Twitter levels. Five World Wide Trends in Sport which you ignore at your peril. Having visited more than 30 countries in four continents in the past few years and spent time with sports leaders, coaches, athletes, sponsors, sports scientists, sports academics, sports medicine practitioners, sports administrators, government funding agencies and other sports professionals in many of the world’s leading sports systems,five world wide trends in society (and by extension in sport) have become very clear and are screaming so loud that they can no longer be ignored. Ignore them at your peril. Getting Sport into Perspective: First of all you have to get sport into perspective. Imagine the world and everything in it was a bucket of sand: that’s all the people, the money, the institutions, governments, buildings, resources….everything.

Sport is roughly a teaspoon of sand in the bucket. And we know, that if you look at sport as a whole across the entire world, the vast majority – over 80% – of that teaspoon is related to football (soccer). It’s different here: The “Big Five”: Jennie Price: Sport’s moment is now | Sport England. Sport can be a powerful force for good. Whether it's playing in a five-a-side football league every week, doing a gym session or going for a bike ride with your children, playing sport and getting active can improve your physical health and mental wellbeing.

It can enrich you personally, enhance your community and contribute to the economy. This was a key feature of the Government's new strategy for sport, Sporting Future Open in a new window, published in December 2015. With this firmly in mind, Sport England has developed its own new strategy Towards an Active Nation, published today.

Superdiversity has reached critical mass - it's New Zealand's future. Mai Chen looks at the challenges superdiversity poses New Zealand in the kick-off to a new Herald series New Zealand's defining issue through the coming decades will be, not diversity, but superdiversity.

This is especially evident in Auckland, where almost 50 per cent of the population is Maori, Asian and Pacific peoples; where 44 per cent were not born in New Zealand; and where there are over 200 ethnicities, and 160 languages spoken. By 2038, on Statistics NZ projections, 51 per cent of New Zealanders will be Asian, Maori and Pasifika, although 66 per cent will still identify as European due to New Zealanders with multiple ethnicities. New Zealand's superdiversity has reached a critical mass; never before has New Zealand had living here such a large number of people who were not born here.

Leading Times in Changing Times Internationally acclaimed award-winning social researcher, futurist and best-selling author Mark McCrindle provided a fascinating insight into the mega, social, generational, cultural and technological trends impacting on the way we lead, deliver, communicate and engage in sport.

The diversity of our generations was put on display. We heard about our aging population and considered how activity can be maintained for life.

Sport NSW. McCrindle | Research Resources. Meet Alpha: The Next ‘Next Generation’ Photo For professional trend forecasters, a generation (as in Generation X, or Y) is less a collection of individuals than a commodity: to be processed into a manufactured unit, marketed and sold to clients. To get there first and define the next next generation is like staking a claim in a gold rush. Perhaps this explains why, even as most marketers and demographers are busy enough trying to wrap their heads around Generation Z, the postmillennial generation of teenagers and tweens, some forecasters are already trying to define the essence of the generation beyond. You know: toddlers, babies, the unborn. For years, Mark McCrindle, a generational researcher and corporate consultant in Australia, has been trying to get a sociocultural read on the post-Generation Z tidal wave of consumers, never mind that many of them are still in onesies, if they have even been born at all.

Here’s his take on the cohort, such as it is, in an interview conducted over email, and edited for space and clarity. Our Futures « 2014 « Papers « Expert Advice.

What comes after Generation Z? Introducing Generation Alpha. Gen Zeds are the most formally educated generation in Australian history – not only have they started their schooling younger, they are also projected to stay in it for longer. Whilst 1 in 10 of the Builders generation have a university degree, 1 in 5 Baby Boomers, 1 in 4 Generation Xers and 1 in 3 Gen Ys, it is projected that 1 in 2 Gen Zeds will be university educated.

With the increased focus on formal education and the increased time spent behind screens and on digital devices, it is unsurprising that they live largely indoors; after all, their parents place priority on homework, coaching and extra-curricular activities over a carefree childhood. These sedentary lifestyles are having an impact on our Gen Zeds – based on the current trends, it is projected that in 2027, when all Gen Z have reached adulthood, 77.9% of males and 61.2% of females will be overweight or obese.

The Zeds are up-ageing because they are growing up faster. Technology Timeline 1995 to 2014 Gen Alpha.
