This article not only got my interest because of it is back in my home state, but also because hiring just a few people can change the outlook on athletics in one area. As mentioned in the article, people were hired with different backgrounds and from different places, and it shows texperience nice can be found just about everywhere.

This article really shows how important sport is the UM. They spend an absurd amount on the "Revenue" sports, but now a substantial amount on the "non-revenue" sports. 

Blake Whitehouse's curator insight, October 14, 2014 8:17 PM

This was a very interesting article about a Division 1 school's athletic facilities. The article talks about expanding and upgrading facilities for non-revenue sports like water-polo and lacrosse. Both sports were added in the past 10 years and the facilities have not yet seen any upgrading and are out of date. The University of Michigan updated the football, basketball, and hockey facilities and spent around 500 million dollars. This upgrade will be around 250 million dollars and will help the teams be more competitive in their new facilities.

Lauren Sheehan's curator insight, September 28, 2014 9:49 PM

1. What did you learn?

I learned how important it is to maintain a sports facility. I did not understand how important it was to pay for and maintain the energy for that facility. In this modern time, we are making more environmentally safe advances that please the fans and supporters of that team or program. I did not ever know about the multiple ways that you can be energy efficient. 


2. What information did you find interesting and educational?

"Of the 126 professional sports teams in the five major North American leagues, 38 have shifted at least partially to renewable energy and have energy efficiency programs". This fact shows the growth of environmentally friendly programs becoming more and more popular throughout sport. It was interesting to look at the several ways that stadiums and facilities have been made energy efficient. 


3. Why did you select the article?

I thought it was important for me to read some of the popular changes being made to stadiums and other facilities. I would like to be in this industry and manage my own gym so to learn theses different ways to be energy efficient is important. 


4. How will this information help you in the sport management industry?

This article has taught me that in order to run a sporting facility, you have to look at every aspect of that facility. You have to make sure you are environmentally friendly, but at the same time, you have to worry about the cost. While worrying about the cost, you're worried about if people will or will not love your newest energy efficient changes, or if that will turn them away from their beloved stadium. There are a lot of factors that come into play with maintaining a sports facility.

How to Increase Sports Facility Revenue with Birthday

An interesting take on how to create revenue in your sporting facility.

Daniel Toth's curator insight, September 26, 2013 4:01 PM

1. I learned that there are multiple ways that a manager of a sport facility can increase revenue during birthday parties for younger children. Some of these include providing a gift with the cost of the party. An example of a good gift was a t-shirt or other apparel that had the facilities name on it. Not only does it please the customer, it also serves as an advertising tool, becuase the child will wear it and broadcast the facility and the fact it was "free" with the party, making other kids beg their parents to let them have a birthday party there. Also, by trying to have your employees close a deal with other parents picking up the kids. In order to make them try and book future parties, offereing an incentive is a good way to try to make the employees book parties. 

2. Information I found interesting and educational were that birthday parties act as a block in "slow periods" of business. They allow slow times of business to gain revenue. Also, by teaming up with the local pizza store is useful, becuase you might get a dscounted price on pizza in exchange for advertising their own business. 

3. I selected this article becuase I am interested in pursuing a career in running my own sport facility. I would love to provide children and adults opprotunities to better their health and to let them have fun playing sports. I think by having my own facility I could increase certain sports in areas that dont have access to certain sports. 

4. This will help me in the sport management business by giving me a step ahead of the comptetion with gaining a certain demographic of customers, and also by allowing me to make more money if I were to ever encounter a financial situation.

Article on facilitating membership at fitness clubs.

 

Brad Rebello's curator insight, October 8, 2014 10:27 PM

      The important thing I learned in this article is that it's essential to get a customer interested in your business. You want them to be a member of your facility as soon as they walk through the front door.  The first thing you should do is show them around. You don't want to waste any time making small talk because they will get uninterested and waste their time. Get right to business and be aggressive. Introducing them to one of the professionals or staff who work in that area is a good strategy to grab the customers attention. By providing a strong introduction including a tour, how they will use the facility, and answering questions,  you will have persuaded them to become a member of your business. I also learned that you should follow up with your customer if they have joined or decided not to. Here, you can ask them how they found about your business so you can set up more advertisements. On the other hand, you can find out why they didn't chose to be a member of your business. You can use their reason to improve your facility and what you offer.

           What I found interesting is that you should not ask for feedback on a numerical scale of 1-10.  Most people are not interested in this part and just want to look for thorough reviews. Getting this type of response can change your sales, program, and business for the better. Another thing I found interesting is that the most important person in the business is the front desk person. They should be knowledgeable and friendly in order to make as many sales as they can. They have to be willing to like people and help them out.

          I chose this article because it provides insight on how to attract and keep customers in your business. It provides the ethics of what you should do and what you should not do.  In a business, your success depends on your customer support and this article explains how you can achieve that in the quickest way possible. This will help in the sport management industry because it teaches me how to interact with others and how to improve your facility. Using these strategies of leadership, communication, and being there to support your customers, you will have put together a successful business.

Cameron Brochu's curator insight, October 14, 2014 5:05 PM

1. I learned different ways to get people to buy a membership to your sports facility. Important things like no negotiating and following up are very important. Making the member feel comfortable and have them return to your facility is important. 

 

2. I found It interesting that you shouldn't give future members a tour because most costumers feels like it waste time. I also found it interesting that negotiating is not ht e right thing to do. A customer makes his or her decision fast and the sports facility manger needs to do the same. 

 

3. I selected this article because one day I would like to own or work in a sports facility and organize different leagues and games. I picked this article to I've me an insight on how to sell memberships to customers and the different strategies I can use. 

 

4. This information will help me in the sports industry because it gives me helpful tips and approaches to use when trying to sell something to a customer without feeling like you are being too pushy and annoying.

Lesson Scheduling at Sports Facilities: Increase Revenue

One of the sports facilities I work with recently shared a tip on how they increase their facility revenue from private lessons. ... This entry was posted in Sports Facility Management, Sports Facility Operations.

Daniel Toth's curator insight, September 26, 2013 4:19 PM

1. I learned that by following up and checking in with customers about private lessons, and by letting them know that the same instructor is available for another lesson helps increase revenue, because customers will be eager to get another lesson if the instructor was good. Also, even if the instructors arent employed by you, and they are renting space, that you should try to cut a deal with them to earn some money, since they are using your space to conduct business, so you should be reimbursed. 

2. Information that I found interesting and educational was the eSpot planner scheduling software, which allows you to see what instructor is available, and the people they taught a private lesson to. Then, it allows you to email the customer in the program to inform them that the instructor is avalable. 

3. I selcted this article becuase I am interested in owning my own facility one day, and was curious how to make more money for my facility and what tools are useful and practical. 

4. This information will help me in the sport management industry by letting me know how to conduct business with my customers, and showing me that follwing up and informing customers is essential to business.
