Sport is a way of keeping oneself healthy and fit. Despite the fact that sports has its unique advantages many people hate sporting events or any activity associated with sports. Below are listed the ways in which you can incite the interest of those who do not pay much attention to any of the sporting activity.
As a sportsperson you must be visiting the ground on daily basis. You can develop the instinct of taking the person along with you to the ground. Make them view the vibrant atmosphere at the ground.
This will incite their interest in the sporting activity and they are likely to develop keen interest in the event.
Be it a cricket or a soccer match, the people who hate sports rarely visit the ground. You can ideally take them to a match involving your city, state or country. As they understand the basics of the game, they are likely to develop an interest towards the event or the sporting activity.
You should teach them the basic rules of the game. Give them theoretical and practical knowledge of the sport and they will start liking the game in the course of time. Ideally watch old recordings of the game with them and help them develop interest in the game.
You cannot develop the interest of a person in a sporting activity until you play the game yourself with that person. Make it a habit to play the game with the person on regular basis at least on weekly basis.
This will incite their interest as they will be in a better position to learn basics of the game.
If you are serious about making the person comfortable in the sporting event, the best course of action would be to have a professional coach in place. The coach will identify the weaknesses of the person and will work on specific issues including developing interest of that person in the game.
Develop interest of the person to read sports magazine that covers a particular sports event in which you might wish to develop the interest of that person. Eventually over a period, the person is likely to develop interest in that particular sport be it cricket or football.
You can also encourage such people to participate in local level events for that particular sporting event. The appreciation they get from public will develop their confidence and also make them interested in the game or sporting activity.
