Kyle Regan's curator insight, October 14, 2014 9:36 PM

This article sheds some light on the necessity of independent parties in boards throughout all business and especially in sport. I thought it was interesting that FIFA was brought up because it has been known to have corrupt leaders who have embezzled hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars. I selected this article because being part of a governing body is something that I am interested in doing for a job but I am very interested in how they work and the implications of their decisions.

Sport England - Sustainable community sports hubs toolkit

It is not enough for community sports hubs to offer first-class facilities and world class talent development. They have to be sustainable. This means reducing the financial obligations - the annual subsidies, maintenance and sport development - they place on local authorities to an absolute minimum.

Grant McAuliffe

 

From this article I learned that women good have major impact in team sports moving forward. With recent trends women are starting to become more important for the future of team athletics.

What I found interesting about this article is how they said that female participation in team sports is on the upswing and male participation is staying put. Also they said that male dominated sports such as football and baseball are on the decline.

I selected this article because I wanted to know why and how women are starting to become so much more important to the future of team sports.

This can help me in the sport management field because we now know that in the future we start to prepare to market more towards women.

Lauren Sheehan's curator insight, October 15, 2014 1:01 AM
1. What did you learn? Since 2008, there are 3.6 million fewer participants in team sports. While team sports participation is on the decline, manufacturers sales of team equipment is up 1.2% since 2010. Volleyball and basketball have been two of the big recipients of the Title IX legislation. 
2. What information did you find interesting and educational?I found it interesting to know that the involvement in female athletics has gone up in the past few years. Since Title IX has been brought up so much recently, it does seem likely that female participation would go up. Women are fighting more for their equal rights in society as well as in athletics.  3. Why did you select the article?I selected this article because as a female athlete, I thought it was important to know that more women athletics are being recognized. It has become apparent that male sports, such as football, are being paid to play in college as well as receiving special treatment. I am interested in marketing and knowing this information is important when trying to sell to certain clients. 4. How will this information help you in the sport management industry?It will help me to understand who to advertise towards with certain products. It would be a better idea to use certain feminine advertisements toward female audiences to let them know their importance in the sports industry. This would also get them more excited to get involved and help the female community.

Kyle Regan's curator insight, October 14, 2014 10:30 PM

One of the hot button topics of the past few years has been the health of children and adolescents, not only in the U.S but all around the world. It is very interesting the relevance the advertising has on children and what they influence their parents to buy. Also how athletes can sway which products become the most popular and sell the most. I chose this article because of the fact that I find it interesting the effect that athletes can have endorsing products including food and especially alcohol, which can both have heavy impacts on children and adolescents.

Ryan McKenna's curator insight, October 15, 2014 8:16 AM

Reading this article shows me that technology keeps rapidly growing and is now a big part of sporting events. There is no longer people who just watch the game. Now that everyone has phones they are constantly on them text in, chatting, and browsing. I chose this article because it is good to know how much apart of the game this technology is becoming and catering to services that the attendees want at the game with their technology will help to make them happy. I thought this article was interesting because I remember just not even ten years ago people went to games to watch the game. They were there for the experience and now that everyone has phones and tablets it has taken away the love of watching and really getting into the game. This helps with the sport management industry because it helps to let the people running the venues to incorporate deals and specials that you can get on those tablets and cater to that target market.

Sportville Model Review | Sport NZ | Sport management | Scoop.it

Since the mid 1990s, the term ‘sportville’ has been used to refer to a variety of partnership arrangements entered into by sports clubs. The idea of traditional single-purpose sports clubs forming collectives is not new. But in recent times there has been a growing interest in the benefits of consolidating resources, and a desire to know “what works and what doesn’t.”

Kyle Regan's curator insight, October 14, 2014 9:50 PM

I learned that schools are debating funding the advancement of athletic facilities because of their lack of producing money. Making the interest for sport harder to come by for young students because of the fact that they are not given the chance to have coaches and teachers who love sport and inspire students. For me i was fortunate to have coaches that loved sport and instilled that love in me and I hope to help carry that out in young people in the future, that is what i found so interesting about the article.
