Even a great facility in a good market can fail to meet owner’s expectations if it is poorly managed. In fact, a number of new sports facility operators fail to consider the details involved in properly managing multi-million dollar venues. From cost containment and program development, to human resources and marketing non-peak hours, recreation center and sports facility management is now a highly competitive endeavor requiring experience.
Sports Facilities Management (SFM) provides a variety of options and levels of sports facility management. SFM’s Full-Time Management includes the placement, ongoing training, and oversight by SFM professionals. One unique aspect of this service is that SFM is able to attract an extraordinary level of talent because the career opportunities within SFM are unlike any other in the industry.
SFM also offers Asset Management services. Asset Management includes management consulting and the institution of certain systems, tools, and resources. With Full-Time Management, the daily operation is handled by SFM employees. With Asset Management services our clients’ staff receive coaching and advice but they do not become SFM employees.
These sports facility management services are only available to projects which Sports Facilities Advisory has deemed feasible, and for sports facility projects where we have developed or reviewed and approved cash flow forecasts.
Clients who engage SFM to provide full-time sports facility management do so because they desire a systematic, proven approach that encompasses recruitment, placement, training, marketing, sales and programming. Full-time managed sports facilities include the placement of our highly experienced leadership level staff. In some cases, and when qualified, we hire and develop staff selected by our clients to operate facilities under Sports Facilities Management.
One key advantage to this level of sports facility management service is that it instantly propels a sports facility into our national network. This allows stand-alone facilities to be staffed by our world-class professionals. It also includes integration into the SFA and SFM culture and training. As an SFM facility, our clients benefit from our powerful training programs only available to SFA and SFM employees, as well as ongoing access to other SFM full-time managed facilities. SFM-managed facilities have access to our national events network and our corporate sponsorship and advertising sales. This is ideal for owners and owner-operators who want a world-class operation that utilizes proven systems and talent.
