Retaining active racers is a challengeRequire clubs to put on an eventConcentration of racers at a designated set of races

Coordinate a mentorship program
Good experiences - someone there at the end of the first race

Provide a good community

Mentorship program - Big sister? Big Brother?

Pass on information from generation to generation - build up new members to take on leadership roles and ensure programs that work continue in the future
Provide more opportunities for actual competition for women - multiple fields that allow everyone to be competitive, like men. This requires promoters to take a risk.

Try out 2/3 fields. Try out which fields work in this region.

Give women a chance to race more than once in your schedule

Offer one competitive women's field
Create good experiences for newcomers to the sport

Concentration of racers - set a calendar
