Research question: This study explores whether the conduct of an unleveraged major event, the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships, leaves a legacy in terms of making a contribution towards the ongoing sport development of surf life-saving. This is an area of event legacy research that has received little empirical research.
Research methods: Secondary data sources from the event host organisation were used as indicators of sport development. Regression analysis, adjusting for changes in the outcome variable outside of the host location (Perth, Western Australia), was used to identify if hosting the event was associated with changes in indicators of attracting, retention and nurturing of sport members in the host location.
Results and findings: The only significant adjusted results were a decrease in membership for the host club and an increase in competitor numbers for Western Australia and the Perth metropolitan area, suggesting hosting the event offered some retention and nurturing opportunities for sport development.
Implications: This study contributes to sport event legacy literature through examining a non-mega, single sport event and its effects on sport development and suggests that hosting the event only had a limited effect on indicators of sport development. The study uses a regression analysis method that could be used to examine legacy from other events.
Storify smaanz-2014Twitter has provided a backchannel for the SMAANZ conference, since gaining a ground swell amongst attendees in 2012. The tweets include more direct observations of the conference, insight on the research and more than a little friendly banter.
Here is a summary of the Sport Management Association of Australia and New Zealand Conference hosted by Deakin University at Melbourne from 26 to 28 November 2014.
In the past, Storify and WordPress played nicely allowing us to embed the tweets into a post. But alas no longer. In lieu of this, please find attached a PDF of the conference (a more stable format anyways), and a link to the Storify file.
