Research Topic: School Facilities
  



Chosen Area of Focus: The sports facilities that should be added to the current sports facilities the school already have.

           Framing our research topic
Our chosen area of focus is “The school sports facilities that should be added to the current sports facilities the school already have. We have chosen this topic as In the past twenty years, there has been a dramatic increase in construction of new sports facilities. From professional leagues to colleges to city recreation facilities, it appears that the trend will continue. Much of the cost of new construction or renovation is subsidized. Those in support of subsidies believe that these new facilities will provide a substantial economic impact. They argue that the construction of these facilities will inject new spending into the local economy through fan support (ticket and other product revenues), job creation and tax revenues. Opponents, however, argue that a modest factory or a small research facility has as much or more economic impact. This paper will discuss the basic aspects of sports facility planning and the arguments for and against the construction of new sports facilities.
But soon after that there has been a dramatic increase in sports facilities in the past few years. In fact, between 1991 and 2006, sixty-four new major league facilities were built (Feng and Humphreys, 2008). One high profile construction deal is Yankee Stadium, which was originally built in 1923 for $2 million.

Possible reasons the 2006 construction was because of the popular sporting events, such as the Super Bowl, collegiate football bowls, NASCAR and Major League Baseball playoffs. Sport has grown to a multibillion dollar industry in the United States (Hall, 2006). In fact, almost forty-nine million people attended college football games in 2007, according to NCAA records (Official NCAA Football Records Book, 2008). Professional athletes are earning millions of dollars playing games in unbelievable facilities. Some of these new facilities are built to resemble mini-malls and in return, offer other amenities in addition to the sporting event taking place (Rich, 2000). A sports arena may be used to host a soccer tournament on night and the very next day it may be used to host a hockey game. As a result of the current demands, these structures are being built larger and fancier each year.
The advantages of building more sports facilities is because students can have sports activities with their friends,teachers can have more ease when planning for a sports event. students can also learn more different kind of sports with the facilities.

Reasons for choice of topic
We do not have much Sports Facilities in SST.

We have chosen this topic, as we want to let SST students to have a wider range of Sports to play.
This allows us to fulfil the requirements of the project task as the project task looks at how you will encourage more students to engage in sports.

This topic benefits society as people will keep their body trim and fit and let them pick up a new sport.

This will also give the students a wider range of CCAs to choose from.

Feasibility of the research
There is a need for our research, as many people want to engage in new sports but they either don’t have the time to do so, or they simply can’t afford it.

It is possible to carry out and complete the project, as there are many students in the school that we can survey on and interview and ask if they like to take on a new sport/new CCA.

The proposed course of action is logical and realistic as it can be completed with the help of some students who would be willing to do the survey and with our hard work and the group effort.

The research provides sufficient opportunity for generation of ideas, as we will constantly have to think of ways to do certain things in the project. As for analysis and evaluation of ideas, we will certainly have many opportunities to analyse information and evaluate ideas on how to go about deciding what to do next.

Manageability of the research
The timeline for the different components of the project will be decided later based on the situation then. But overall, the project will be done as quickly and carefully as we can, trying our best not to go out of point and staying as close to the topic as possible.

This research provides sufficient opportunity for group work as we will need to discuss a lot of matters regarding the project, for example who will be assigned to do what component of the project and we will have to work together.

We do anticipate some difficulties along the way, such as poor communication among the group members and lack of data. We intend to cope with these difficulties by trying to get the group to go and upload their findings and their part of the project onto wikispaces.com
Accessibility of the information required
Information/knowledge that will be relevant to our research would be students wanting to learn a new sport/joining a new CCA.
             
We will be obtaining this information from primary and secondary sources, depending on which one gives more reliable and useful information.
  1. Some alternatives that we have thought of would be to ask others for more information on what sports they would like to play/or what type of Sports CCA they want to include.
  2. Some problems we anticipate while gathering my materials would be that the information that we can find is not entirely relevant to our project and that that is already the closest piece of information among all others that we have found.
