Enterprise in Sport. Unit 14. Assignment Task 1. Sports Business Options. My three options. * Option one. A string of Olympic size Ice Arena's nation wide. Including built in skate shops, which make custom made to fit and customized ice skates both Hockey and figure with any design on them. There aren't many Olympic size ice rinks nation wide, many skate shops cant get skates in stock from abroad due to the huge rush for skates. Ice-skating both figure and hockey is becoming increasing more popular, due to the winter Olympics and the celebrity TV show 'Dancing on Ice'. The ice rinks that are currently open are n need of refurbishment and many are being closed down. * Option Two. Martial Art Gyms (Dojo's) across London, for young children and self-defence classes for females. This is because the streets of London are become increasingly violent and dangerous both during the day and the night-time. Children and women need to learn how to protect themselves from violence. Children at school are targets from violence also from the school bullies, there has always been bullying in schools but over the past few years, the amount of physical and psychological violence has increase resulting in children committing suicide and turning on every one. ...read more.


They therefore have a higher risk of developing serious health problems in later life, including heart attack and stroke, type 2 diabetes, bowel cancer, and high blood pressure. The risk of health problems increases the more overweight a person becomes. Being overweight as a child can also cause psychological distress. Teasing about their appearance affects children's confidence and self-esteem and can lead to isolation and depression. The number of overweight and obese children in the UK has risen steadily over the past 20 years. For the boys they have options of football, athletics, cricket and basketball and the girls can choose between football, netball, athletics and gymnastics. This could also include teaching the children about healthy eating and nutrition, letting the schools introduce junk food bans. Football would learn circuits, ladder drills, basic skills like dribbling, passing and defence. Netball and Basketball learning ball control, passing, shooting, defending. Gymnastics learning stretching, floor routines, balance beam work and so on. I have chosen business option number 1. A string of Olympic size ice rinks, with skate shops, which make custom made to fit with customisation of their skates with pictures, gems or inscriptions on them with matching accessories, like blade guards, bags and protectors. ...read more.


Each customisation would be optional and buyers would have the choice of buying matching accessories like outfits, bags, blade guards and protectors. The arenas hockey teams would be able to get made to fit uniforms, and have their skates and pads customised with their teams motif. The cost of skates would depend on the size and nature of the customisation ranging from �50 pound upwards. To get the business underway we would need a grant from the Lottery and Sports England. Also as Streatham Ice Arena in London, future is still not looking good, we would start by getting planning permission from Streatham council to refurbish and renovate the arena as our first project. As Streatham Ice Arena is home to many Hockey teams including the Redskins and the Warriors, it would be one of the best places to promote the new facility. Many people attend Streatham Arena daily, so to build a state of the art arena would be beneficial for the locals and those who travel miles just to go skating. There is a huge amount of money to be made from new arenas and skate shops in the next few years due to the huge demand for more skating facilities as the nation has gone ice skating crazy. ?? ?? ?? ??
