Sport Management Faculty and Graduate Students Complete Study for the IHSAA

July 2, 2020

Grand View University faculty and graduate students in the Master of Science in Sport Management (MSSM) program recently completed a study assessing factors influencing football participation among Iowa high school students. Recent graduates Astrid Araya, Alex Bush, and Artie Bess joined Drs. Scott Bull and Mark Slavich for the first-of-its-kind, state-wide research project. Surveys were collected from more than 7,000 male Iowa high school students, aimed at investigating motives and constraints for football participation among both football and non-football playing students. Full results of the study can be viewed here.
