PNL Newsports tell you what is Newsports !
New sports is not a new definition proposed by any scholar or organization, but a category born from the conventions of the sports industry and the media. There is no official unified statement. According to the development trend in recent years, this association attempts to summarize the elements that define emerging sports:
Mainstream traditional sports have generally been included in the physical education curriculum of schools, and the penetration rate is quite high. The opposite is true for emerging sports, but it is precisely because the penetration rate is not high that there is a need for promotion.
2. New invention
Some of Hong Kong’s emerging sports projects may have been invented for less than ten years, but this is not an absolute factor. Many projects have been developed in foreign countries for decades or even a hundred years, and they came to Hong Kong from scratch.
From the Asian Games project to the only projects carried out in Taiwan and Hong Kong in the world, there are also opportunities to be called emerging sports.
4. Sports Type
Extreme sports, team sports, individual sports, and even physical fitness activities have the opportunity to be called emerging sports. But generally speaking, it is more common to call the competitive category an emerging sport.
5. Low threshold
Traditional sports have mature development and high technical requirements. At the same time, the training of players tends to be elite, which is very different from the strength of beginners, forming resistance for beginners to participate. Emerging sports are mostly new projects, and the threshold for beginners is low, which is one of the incentives to promote beginners. But in fact, every emerging sport has also advanced over time and gradually matured. Senior players and coaches have begun to appear, and it is an indisputable fact that they gradually integrate with traditional sports.
Looking at the above analysis in different dimensions, the definition of emerging sports is indeed rather vague, and sometimes it is confused with traditional sports. In reality, the projects that are most easily defined as emerging sports, most of which are defined by whether they are mainstream projects, and the definition of mainstream can also be defined from the public perception, media perception, social popularity, government recognition, market value, etc. Factors.
