Unformatted text preview: Homework 1: Chapters 4 & 5 Payton Johnson 1. Barnstormer: the name given to a team that has no regular home field and travels the country playing exhibitions 2. Players would often chose to Barnstorm during the off-season because it was more financially rewarding than the salary that they would receive from their professional team. 3. Community based sport programs serve twice the number of youth participants as school based programs because sport- based programs have fewer people who are qualified to coach, rather than parents and other volunteers are depended on to coach in the community- based sport program. 4. There are concerns in the Physical Education programs in Canada, such as, the education problem may be linked to the lack of qualified physical educators, because schools are often using untrained physical educators who only know about popular sports. Intramural programs suffer from poor infrastructure, or inadequate facilities and lack of sufficient equipment to meet demand. Also after school intramural sports, have been cancelled because of lack of supervision or lack or people/ staff willing to stay after and help. Competitive sport programs have most of the same problems like lack of staff, or lack of space, but in addition competitive sport programs have a financial problem. 5. The role of government concerning sport in Canada, is just wanting them to excel and succeed in sports. The Canadian National Sport Organizations oversee most aspects of their individual sports, but what they do it dictated by the standards established by international federations and organizations who act as governing bodies for major games and other international federations. I believe that the role is appropriate, because the government just wants to to succeed. 6. There are many aspects that have helped professional football in Chile develop. The national team in 1962 place third in the FIFA World Cup, a bronze medal in the 2000 Olympics, and a Colo-Colo s South American club championships in 1991. Colo-Colo has been the most successful team in Chilean football, including 20+ titles in the Chilean league. In 2002, the club declared bankruptcy. After Colo-Colo became bankrupt, another management took over. Eventually the club invested in stocks, and made 31.7 million U.S. dollars. In 2005 a law was passed, this law required clubs to change their administrative status to become either PLSC (public limited sport company) or corporations. There were two goals in mind when this law was passed 1) being, putting an end to the mismanagement in professional football by requiring owners to be liable in case of bankruptcy and 2) improve the business of football in Chile. This law challenges club owners to manage what happens on and off the field. 7. In Latin America intercollegiate athletics are very important. There is a multi-sport festival that takes place every year, known as National University Games. Each school must actively participate at a state level, then move on to regionals if qualified. In 2008 nearly 800,000 people participated at the intramural level, 67,000 competed at the state level, and 15,000 competed at the regional level. Each event has a mens and a women's part. The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is another example that illustrates the efforts to develop collegiate sport in Latin America. The LIA (intercollegiate athletic association of Puerto Rico) is a way to provide student-athletes with a chance to compete in sport and to follow requirements and eligibility. 8. In table 5.1 it shows how many people are in each country, human development, GDP per capita, adult literacy, inequality measure, and life expectancy. In table 5.2 is shows each country and how many medals they have won between 1951 and 2007. The relationship between overall country development and athletic success, depends on how many people are in the country. Thus being said, the more people in the country, the more money each country has to spend on training for athletes. More training for athletes means more Olympic Game winners, bringing pride to the country. The Human Development Index is a form of measurement that a country must achieve in the following: heath, education, and standard of living. If you compare the Countries with the highest HDI, you will also find that they have a high medal achievement. ...

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
