            Kelly Kilpatrick, who writes on the topic of sports management in college, writes the article “What it Takes to Become a Sports Agents.”  She breaks down success in the industry into five specific topics.  Education is considered to be the most important first step in most careers.  Kelly suggest pursuing a bachelor degree in a myriad number of fields and then going to law school to ensure that they have the proper law background to represent their client.  Her second topic is Intricate Knowledge of the Way Sports Recruiting Works.  The profession requires a knowledge of sports marketing, player market value, and an understanding of player recruiting.  Her third topic, Internship, may be the most important step into getting a job in any professional sports industry.  Kelly says that an internship in sports agency, which take place mostly in the summer, is a great way to experience the profession and get your name out.  Her fourth topic is Network.  Like in any profession knowing people is very important to get a job.  Her fifth topic Love of the Game,  which she defines as loving not only the players but every aspect of the business and understanding how to play the game correctly.                     

 

Kelly Kilpatrick's article tells the full story of being a sports agent.  She writes about the education needed.  This helped me to see how one perpares for this profession.  It also helped me to understand the economics of this career.

This article overall to me is very well written. Kelly Kilpatrick really explained what it takes to be a Sports Agent. You stated all the key information that was needed in this essay and to me it was very helpful. I looked at your website and it was also very useful making it a great choice to help you write your report. This is also a great essay because it shows the expectations that a Sports Agent should have. In order to be a sports agent you have to do the steps that are clearly in our report and also in the article. Your article is spot on and was very useful for me as I read it so for people who might want to read this and actually have a career in this type of job field this is a great article.

This article gives an oversight of the specific criteria that the popular sports agents of today have. Sports agents usually have prior knowledge of the way things are done and try to become known in the sports industry. Representing multiple athletes makes for a sports agnecy powerhouse and helps gives the agent popularity, which calls for big deals and less competition. The agent must also have a willingness to travel because they are going to be in different states and in some cases around the world. Having strong connections and endorsments is essential to becoming a rising star in the agnecy business.

Collinwood Recreation Center drawing crowds from the suburbs

Collinwood Recreation Center drawing crowds from the suburbs | Sports Management: Oyler, T | Scoop.it

By Thomas Ott, The Plain Dealer

 

"Councilman Michael Polensek doesn't want to bar visitors from other communities but noted that Cleveland residents have to pay admission to use suburban recreation facilities."

Travis Oyler's insight:

This is an interesting article on a new $11 million recreation center that has recently opened in Northern Ohio. The center does not charge an admission fee, and thousands of people from surrounding areas are driving to use the center. Political figures from these surrounding areas are upset because the new rec center is taking business away from their recreation centers.
