11. Scheduling Sports’ Seasons to Harmonize with the Olympic Games

All sport and talent competitions should generally be structured and scheduled with an eye towards standardizing and scaling the sport so that it could be somewhat seamlessly merged with the schedule and spirit of the International Olympic Games. Ideally, such sports would climax within or just before the month that the Olympic Games for that sport’s season are held. Although the final competitions for each sport would be played each year at the closing of the regular season, during the years in which that sport participates in the Olympic Games, the finals competitions would be held under the auspices of the Olympic Games. During non-Olympic years, these sports would normally compete nationally unless they already have or choose to develop their own international competition systems independent of the Olympic Games.
