            Students visit U.S. Olympic Training Center and NCAA Final Four

            Last spring, a number of UAF students had the fantastic opportunity to attend two separate national events related to sport management. On March 18-21, six students attended the Team USA Symposium held at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The students were exposed to various aspects of the Olympic and Paralympic sport and learned from industry leaders through keynote speakers and panel discussions on various topics, including the Olympic Movement, sports performance, and sports business development. UAF also entered two teams into the USOC Case Study competition. Each team presented a 15-minute oral presentation on whether or not eSports should be allowed in the Olympics to a panel of staff within the Olympic and Paralympic Movement.

            The Scoop on Sports Sales

            The Scoop on Sports Sales

            We spoke with Travis Misner, Manager of Partnership Development with the Charlotte Hornets, to get the scoop on sports sales and the melding of business education and the sports industry. Travis is a co-instructing the Sport Sales class for SOM’s Sport and Recreation Business program, which has twenty students this semester. Tell us about your background – both academically and professionally. I received my BA from Loras College, a small liberal arts school in Dubuque, IA, where I studied Physical Education and K-12 Teaching. While on campus, I was a baseball student-athlete and had the unique opportunity to serve on the NCAA Division III National Student Athlete Advisory Committee, where I represented over 10,000 student-athletes from two different Division III conferences. This was where I discovered my passion for the business of sports, and was able to be a part of conversations and decisions that were far outside my realm of understanding.

            NABL wins 2nd Place in Business Plan Competition

            NABL wins 2nd Place in Business Plan Competition

            In March, the Native Alaskan Business Leaders (NABL) traveled to Portland, Oregon to participate in the annual American Indigenous Business Leaders (AIBL) business plan competition. The competition was held at the NIKE World Headquarters. All of the business plans created by NABL students over the years aim to provide Native Alaskans or rural villages a beneficial product or service. These are viable business plans and could be used by club members in the future if they wish. This year’s NABL business idea – created by NABL President Jillian Bjornstad, Jordan Kashatok, Maynard Maglaya, Roquel Mills-Bain, and Judy Obat – was for the development of a forest school called “Tuttu Tumi” Caribou Tracks LLC. The mission of NABL’s proposed business is: “Caribou Tracks Institute is dedicated to promoting the essence of the connection of cultural practices and traditions through hands-on educational activities with traditional and ecological knowledge shared by the Native community.”
