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.

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.

Damien's curator insight, March 22, 2014 6:58 PM

When we think of creating a sports facility and being either a manager or owner we have to remember it can also be a dangerous place. Meaning incidents happen and lawsuits get filed, so as an owner or manager we have to always remember to have insurance as well as proper risk management plans to protect against t lawsuits and avoid incidents.

Jack Botham's curator insight, August 27, 2015 10:04 AM

This article demonstrates the importance of having a risk management plan in place. Constant audits and inspections are mandatory to avoid serious injury or a potential fatality. It is important for builders to perform inspections not only keep people safe, but also to maintain their own legal obligations. Building inspections further ensure that structures and equipment on site, such as scaffolds, are in good working order to prevent a court case similar to the one in this article. A case like this could result in a builder being forced out of business due to financial penalty. A fatality on a site could result in the builder being sent to prison due to legislation breach.

bryant tucker's curator insight, July 23, 2016 5:33 PM

This article in my opinion picks up on the facts of why not just recreation centers should have a risk management plan, but it coincides with any type of facility that will keep from having lawsuits or any issues.

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.

Greening Professional Sports | Business Ethics

Greening Professional Sports | Business Ethics | sport facility managment | Scoop.it

EarthTalk® E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: How eco-friendly are professional sports leagues and their teams? Which stand out especially for their green efforts?

 

Professional sports, like many other pursuits, are getting greener every day. While pro leagues and teams have traditionally been the last to go green, it has all changed in recent years. Maybe it’s the fact that wasting less saves money. Or that going green generates good public relations. Or that it’s just the right thing to do. Whether it’s any or all-of-the-above, professional sports certainly have never been greener.

Thankfully, golf tends to enhance the environment, not hurt it.  Yes it may change some of the surrounding areas, perhaps influencing the wildlife living close, but it does not turn beautiful scenery into a strip mall or parking lot.  Many professional sport teams have "gone green" or have been trying to "go green" in recent years.  Once again, very thankfully, golf is very green...literally.

James Mackay's curator insight, February 18, 2015 10:15 PM

Is it part of the ethical discussion to use some of the tremendous revenue generated by sports franchises to conduct green initiatives?  Does it show good corporate citizenship?
