Assignment #4 Instructions:
A warm-up is not Cardiorespiratory Training. It is a warm-up, movement that has a sole purpose to improve blood flow to the entire body and prepare the supporting systems for exercise. Therefore Cardiorespiratory training is a necessary independent component of fitness that must be addressed with the same vigor and assessment precision as a resistance training program. Cardiorespiratory fitness can be improved via a variety of exercise components and modalities, but the similar factor within that exercise is the consistent elevation of heart rate, for an extended period of time, which meets the ACSM’s recommendations for improvement of cardiorespiratory fitness. The elevated heart rate must be a direct result of repeated large muscle contractions, causing the coordination of heart and lungs to produce energy and movement. For this assignment you will measure your personal level of cardiorespiratory fitness. Using the NASM protocols for cardiorespiratory assessment and the attached Labs 3.1-1 through 3.2-3, as criteria for assessment.
Assignment #4 WK6
Describe and list the results of your personal cardio respiratory assessment. Your results should include: all elements listed on the document titled “CPT7_cardio_assessment_template” including your fitness ratings.

After the successful marketing and public relations campaigns your company creat

After the successful marketing and public relations campaigns your company created, the local Little League baseball organization has contacted the athletic director about using the University’s facilities for the opening day ceremonies. This is a first for the school, so they have again contracted your company to help them manage the event.
The opening ceremonies include an introduction of the 10 teams in the league, recognition of last year’s champion by the city’s mayor, and the tip-off game between last year’s first and second place finishers. Area dignitaries will attend the ceremonies (you pick them!), and someone will be honored by throwing out the first pitch. Remember your client is located in Mobile, AL.
You need to create an event management plan for the day, which includes a timeline of the day’s activities, location of emergency services, concessions, parking, security, restrooms, etc. Be sure to include handling of the dignitaries.
The attached event planning booklet is a good resource to use in planning your event.

Risks have significant potential to impact a capital budget. One risk occurs when cash flows are not paid within the agreed time. Delayed cash flows can cause an organization to have minimal funds for the intended investments (Siziba & Hall, 2021). This risk forces the organization to prolong the undertaking of the investment as it awaits the cash flows. Another risk is the investee company collapsing. When the business entity in which an investment is made collapses, the investment can be revoked or deemed redundant. It may culminate in losses or compensation that is lower than the initial investment to the investor. Last but not least, there exists the risk of management sinking the invested funds in risky projects. The investments can be so risky that it is almost certain that there will be no Return on Investment (ROI).
Risk mitigation aimed at attracting capital investors to a sports project demands the adoption of risks premiums. These are discount rates added to risk-free borrowing rates (Gleißner, 2019). They guarantee that the returns on riskier projects will be higher for the investors. The use of certainty equivalents are also appropriate as they determine the degree of risk associated with future cash flows. They help in converting expected future cash flows into certain cash flows, providing a true picture of future events regarding cash flows. Specifying reasonable payback periods can convince the investors. This is the time it will take the sports projects to pay the investors the money they invested. The returns of the projects should not fall beyond the time limit because it will portray the riskiness of the investment.

As mentioned, the global economy has had a big impact on how investors move forward with investing. There’s risk involved in every move we make so being able to mitigate risk provides help for investors. One issue investor may see in the capital budget is the cash flow. If budget showcases a questionable cash flow, they may lean another way. The cash flow should be stout and accumulated perfectly on time. Using a sensitivity analysis could show the investors that cash flow is not going to change and that the return will always be on time. “To encourage investors to invest their funds into risky projects, the returns from such projects should be higher than returns from less risky investments such as treasury bonds. A risk premium is a discount rate that is added to the risk-free rate of borrowing. The risk-free rate is the rate of return of low-risk investments such as government-backed securities. The investments are then appraised using the resulting discount rate. Investments that offer better returns are chosen.” (Adams, 2022) A better bang for each investors buck is important and the returns must meet their times set. Each risk taken should be calculated and evidence should be provided that it’s worth it for the investors. These risk can be things such as the markets risk and each individual project risk. Although a stadium being built is one huge project there’s a ton of smaller project risk that may go along with it that have their own issues. The capital budget should provide evidence that each risk is worth it and brings in a good rate of return.

In the current world that we are in, risk is a huge factor when it comes to investing in any sort of large project. A capital budget can help identify the risks associated with a potential project while projecting potential costs that also come with it and assist investors in making the right choice for their company. “Capital budgeting is the process a business undertakes to evaluate potential major projects or investments. Construction of a new plant or a big investment in an outside venture are examples of projects that would require capital budgeting before they are approved or rejected.” (Kenton, 2022). The best way to portray this to sports is in a scenario where a new stadium or athletic facility is being built that will cost millions to construct. Risk can be mitigated to attract investors by ensuring that they will have a guaranteed return on their investment regardless of our risk. “Investors try to avoid risk. To encourage investors to invest their funds into risky projects, the returns from such projects should be higher than returns from less risky investments such as treasury bonds. A risk premium is a discount rate that is added to the risk-free rate of borrowing. The risk-free rate is the rate of return of low-risk investments such as government-backed securities. The investments are then appraised using the resulting discount rate. Investments that offer better returns are chosen.” (Adams, 2016). Giving the investors that security blanket of funds that will be returned to them while projecting bigger returns on the project is something that can help them feel the warm and fuzzy and pull the trigger on joining us on this adventure.

The Uniform Athlete Agents Act (UAAA) is a state law. This is because it was created by the urging of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in 2000 as a state legislation body (Lens, 2020).
The UAAA applies to athlete agents. It regulates their conduct and requires them to register with a state authority. This requirement is to grant them permission to act on behalf of the athletes in the particular state.
It is a requirement to register under the UAAA in Texas. According to the Occupations Code in Chapter 2051, contacting an athlete, whether directly or indirectly, and entering into contracts requires an agent to have registered.
The Secretary of State has the right to issue the certification to the athlete agents. No tests are required. The Secretary of State reviews the applications of the agents and grants a certificate of registration to successful applicants (Masteralexis, 2020).
The UAAA has the authority to revoke contracts between athletes and agents who have not been registered. They can also issue a penalty of up to $50,000 to the agents for violating the Act.
The Act allows athletes to cancel contracts with unregistered agents within 14 days. The duration is from the time of signing the contract and the athletes are not required to give any reasons for cancellation.
An athlete agent may not intentionally:
Fail to registered when required by Section 4.
Predate or postdate an agency contract.
Provide misleading or false information in an application for registration or renewal registration.

Your submission should be submitted in a Word Document and include the following:
1. Name of Event
2. Dates of Event & Dates you will attend
3. Site of Event
4. Hosting Organization
5. People you have contacted in the organization (and their titles/departments) regarding your project and your attendance at the event?
6. One concise paragraph regarding why you think this is an appropriate selection.
This assignment is to be approximately 1 page long, and your responses to the items above should be numbered on your paper. This US sports event must be a future event between December 26th and January 16th, as you must conduct three interviews at the event as required in the directions (please see the directions for the final project/event audit due at the end of Week 7).
Informational purposes only:
Will submit for you to provide final as well later
See below:
This project/paper incorporates the core concepts learned in this course and demonstrates an understanding of Sports Event Management.
Over the course of these eight weeks you must select a sport event to attend and provide a critical assessment of the event. You must have your event approved by the end of the fourth week of the course. Your write-up of this assignment should be 8-12 pages in length, not including the title or reference page and follow the criteria below.
The purpose of this assignment is to give you the opportunity to visit a sporting event and evaluate the key elements comprising the sport experience based on information from the text and course. Your task is to apply course-related material to a real-world sport event. For this assignment, you are to attend a sporting event and perform an assessment of that event. By analyzing the event you should heighten your understanding of consumers’ reactions to the event and understand how to better manage an event that meets customers’ and sponsors’ needs. Write in first-person when appropriate.
Name of event, date, location, and other descriiptive information (e.g., website address, scanned ticket stub, flyer, other pertinent information that you see fit).
Briefly describe the event and the organization responsible for hosting the event. You should provide a background and historical perspective of the event and venue.
Conduct a detailed SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) for the following:
The organization that put on the event.
The event itself.
Describe some of the various stakeholders and their influence on the event.
Explain if there are short term benefits and long term legacies developed by this event.
Describe some of the sponsors of the event and their relationships to the event, community, organizers, etc.
While at the event, observe both the spectators and the event staff. What does the organization do well? What do they do poorly? How effectively did the organization meet customers’ needs? Do they offer what customers want? Are there ways in which the services could be managed or performed more effectively? Report your key observations.
Interview at least three customers/spectators and make note of the demographic characteristics of the people you interview (sex, race, age, etc.). You may not interview people with whom you attended the event. Try to find out what influences a person’s decision to attend the event. What really attracts customers to this event and how are they attracted to the event? Try to find out what influences customers’ overall experiences at the event. What aspects of the event do customers find most/least appealing? What aspects of the event most influence customers’ satisfaction?
Based on your observations and interviews, make some recommendations that seem appropriate for improving the overall event experience. What will keep customers and sponsors satisfied? What will it take to bring them back and encourage others? Base your recommendations on what is in the text and what you found through your interviews and your observations.
If you were to do a post-event fan evaluation, which method would you use and why?
Tips:
• Decide early on which event you will select.
• Do the assignment from a manager’s perspective rather than a fan’s perspective.
• Summarize your impressions by placing emphasis on the evaluation rather than mere descriiptions.
• Be sure to tie your evaluations to the things that we have learned in class.
• This report should be between eight and 12 double-spaced pages.
