The environmental sustainability is an important part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The environmental CSR helps sport organizations to gain competitive advantage and ultimately create additional revenue streams. As such, the green building design became a relatively new trend as part of the environmental CSR. This study reviewed how sustainable building movement has evolved, the considerations and requirements for green buildings, the benefits of sustainable buildings, and the sustainable professional sports facilities in the United States. In particular, benefits of sustainable sports facilities were highlighted to encourage sport organizations to consider sustainable facilities for design and construction.

Perceived Service Qualities and Spectator Satisfaction: A Case Study on Gender Differences

Research has established the importance of gender difference regarding perceived service quality (Lee, Kim, Ko, & Sagas, 2011; Snipes, Thomson, & Oswald, 2004), but few studies have been conducted to investigate the relationship between perceived service quality and satisfaction by gender. Accordingly, the current study was designed to examine the influence of service quality on satisfaction by concentrating on gender differences in the context of spectator sports. Using a convenience sample of 352 game spectators, this case study analyzed data using multiple regression techniques. The results showed that there were different levels of perceived service quality between males and females (i.e., player performance, facility space, and game atmosphere). Interestingly, female spectators rated most service quality elements, including dimensions of service quality and core service quality (except for player performance), marginally higher than male spectators. This finding in the current case study implies that female spectators are more likely to highly rate overall service quality. However, these findings were not consistent with previous research that males tend to rate perceived service quality higher than female counterparts (Lee et al., 2011). The overall results generally suggest that perceptions of service quality depend on the context.

The purpose of this review is to understand how different college and university physical activity education policies affect college and university students. Given the different policy arrangements of college and university physical activity education programs in the American higher education system, it is important to understand how these different physical activity education policies (i.e., required to earn a baccalaureate degree vs. not required to earn a baccalaureate degree) influence students’ physical activity behavior and motivation. Specifically, the study reviewed the characteristics of physical activity education policies in terms of two different perspectives (i.e., public health perspective vs. a motivational perspective). Having a required physical activity education course policy generally enhanced student accessibility to physical activity education courses and helped to form students’ positive physical activity behaviors during the college and university years and post-graduation, whereas having an elective physical activity course policy was most respectful of student autonomy. Future research may need to explore different influences of physical activity course satisfaction during a semester between the two different policies.

The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of regularly forced treadmill running on spatial memory and EEG change in rats performing in a multi water maze. In the study, twenty SD rats were assigned to either a control group(C) or an exercise group(E). Group E performed regularly forced treadmill running for 6 weeks, the escape time and EEG were measured during the water maze test. The activation of EEG was measured in Theta, Alpha, SMR, Beta, and Gamma waves, which were analyzed using one-way ANOVA. In conclusion, there were two major findings from the present study. First, there was a significant reduction in escape time in group E, whereas group C did not show any significant changes, which indicates that regularly forced exercise plays a positive role in enhancing spatial memory in rats. Second, Theta and SMR waves in the frontal cortex were significantly activated in group E. These present results would contribute to the current efforts in developing neuro-feedback programs for the improvement of motor performance.

Very little research has examined the effects of involvement profiles on sport consumers’ loyalty to a particular sport club. Up to now, no research has identified the direct effect of specialization on loyalty and the moderating effect of specialization on the link between satisfaction and loyalty. This study attempted to fill these gaps in the literature and to investigate the effects of individual dimensions of involvement profiles in creating tennis club members’ loyalty through their satisfaction. This study also intended to investigate the direct and indirect effects of club members’ levels of specialization on loyalty to a particular club. This study used a causal model approach and proposed a conceptual model after an extensive review of the literature. It is based on a sample of 186 amateur tennis players in Korea. The current study used confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation model to analyze and confirm the conceptual model proposed in this research. Findings indicated that involvement profiles (attraction, self-expression, and centrality) are positively related to the respondents’ satisfaction, which in turn is positively related to loyalty. Furthermore, while specialization is negatively related to loyalty, it positively moderates the link between satisfaction and loyalty.

Commentary on a Conceptual Model for the Role of Fundamental Motor Skills

A physically active lifestyle cannot be simply explained by only a few variables. A model suggested by Stodden et al. (2008) explained the role of fundamental motor skill (FMS) in promoting physical activity and preventing obesity. This model was a first-of-its- kind conceptual model that addresses FMS and perceived motor competence to explain physical activity and obesity across different age groups. This model provides important implications for physical education and motor behavior fields. However, several important concepts were overlooked in this model especially skill instruction and practice environments that effectively lead to successful skill learning. Thus, this article attempted to offer different views on the relationship between FMS and physical activity along with related variables using dynamic systems theory (Thelen & Smith, 1994). Individual-, task-, and environment-related variables are suggested to highlight the importance of improving quality of instruction and learning climate that are appropriate for individual learners’ characteristics. This article suggests the need for a holistic model that can bridge physical education and motor behavior in explaining the relationship between FMS and physical activity.

Catching is one of fundamental motor skills that is a vital component of many sports and recreational activities. A successful catching performance is dependent on tight coupling between perception and action. The perception of external information specifying the dynamic properties of the ball must be used to control the catching performance. While various determining factors in catching have been explored in the field of motor behavior, a systematic investigation of the factors based on the inherent characteristics of constraints is still warranted. Moreover, diverse nature of the factors influencing the catching performance has not been looked at from a consolidated point of view. Therefore, the purpose of this article was to investigate constraints affecting catching performance based on Newell’s (1986) constraints model. To frame the discussion of research evidence concerning the developmental perspective of catching, previous studies were reviewed and factors of catching movement were evaluated based on a classification of manipulating learner, task and environment constraints. While educational implications for effective teaching in catching skill for children were discussed, future research should be conducted to examine the more effective catching skill acquisition activities and programs for children.
