SM 3710 (BU 3710) - Recreation Facilities Management


This course is designed to prepare students to plan, design, and manage sport and recreation facilities. The class members tour numerous facilities on field trips to large and small, for‐profit and non‐profit facilities including prep schools, colleges/universities, YMCAs, ice arenas, summer camps, private fitness facilities, municipal facilities and playgrounds, and specialized venues (such as curling and rock climbing). Students will study and discuss client needs and the theories involved in planning, constructing, and managing facilities. Throughout the course, consideration is given to the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) guidelines, and “green” environmentally‐sound construction practices and materials incorporating LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. Throughout the semester, each student will make several presentations based on research of facility needs, construction, and equipment and furnishings. The course will culminate with the presentation of a group project which will reflect a foundation and expanse of knowledge in the field. Prerequisites: SM 1510 /KI 1510  or BU 1110 , BU 2220 , and BU 2510 ; 60 credits. Offered every fall. (4 Credits)
