Sports Debate Club and Sports Business Society Members,
We hope that you are having a great summer. At the end of the spring semester, the officers of the Sports Business Society and the Sports Debate Club met and decided it would be in the best interest of both clubs to merge together fostering a more analytical approach to sports as set out in the original vision of the Sports Business Society. We believe that this will not only allow for the idea of the Sports Business Society to be executed, but it would also include more casual fans who simply want a deeper insight into sports.
With this new club, which will be under the Sports Business Society name, we would like to announce our goals for the upcoming semester as well as our long term vision. First, we have created a website at wahoosportsanalytics.wordpress.com, which will serve as the focal point for the new club. On this website, articles with a focus on sports statistics, analytics, and business can be written, edited, and posted by club members for anyone to see. We hope that this website will serve as a forum for thought provoking ideas around sports to be shared with the University community and any other interested readers.
As we get back to Grounds in the next week, please look for us at the activities fair and at our interest meeting where we will be going over these changes in greater detail. Updates can also be found through our Twitter account @wahooanalytics. We hope everyone is as excited as we are for this new chapter, and we hope to see everyone interested in the fall.
