The RAVSTASS advantage: RAVSTASS is an Independent Multi-Sport Association, removing inefficiency through the administration and development of sports and their facilities that enable multiple sports.
The problem we solve: Traditional sports clubs are single sport oriented. Club participation costs have discouraged individuals from pursuing a variety of sports. We believe that funding is presently inefficient and wasted on duplicated infrastructure, facilities and amenities, that for most days of the week is idle. Traditional local clubs are also geographically named and limited to their catchment area. Modern lifestyle is increasingly mobile and the lack of certainty for where our careers will take us, makes a membership outlay risky. RAVSTASS solves this by being everywhere, we are not locked to a single location and we do not charge membership fees, the costs for any individual is dependent on the sport/activity they are participating in.
Funding is efficient with RAVSTASS: The future is Multi-Sports administration. Comparable to the trend towards Multi-Sport facilities, RAVSTASS takes this further to sports administration. It is a common challenge for local councils to achieve harmony among clubs sharing a mixed purpose sporting facility. RAVSTASS proposes to solve these relationship problems by merging Multi-Sports Facilities under Multi-Sports Administration.
We believe: We believe that this mindset shift will deliver thrifty solutions for participants and achieve improved distribution of capital and government funding. We believe the existing model of single sport clubs will increasingly become redundant.
