WAKO GameChangers (WGC) is a new development concept in WAKO. It is established under the Athlete Corner umbrella, WAKO's learn and share concept and it is built on the pillar to educate and develop future leaders in our sport. In addition, the concept is meant to improve the culture, to trigger the pride and curiosity among the WAKO youth and to act preventive.
The future generations are the asset to secure a sustainable development of WAKO as a whole.
