SFIA Releases In-Depth Individual Team Sport Reports 

SILVER SPRING, MD (May 18, 2020) – The Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) has released the first collection of its 2020 Single Sport Reports, including 23 individual sport reports in the team sports category. These reports provide a detailed analysis and breakdown of participation by various demographics, and by specific sport or fitness activity.

“Team sports participation in 2019 indicated countervailing trends,” said SFIA CEO & President, Tom Cove. “While only 7 of the 23 team sports that we track increased in participation, the team sports category, as a whole, increased in participation due to significant increases in traditional team sports, such as basketball, outdoor soccer and volleyball. Our Single Sport Reports allow businesses and organizations to gauge the health of each sport through a deep dive into the critical factors that influence each sport’s growth.” 

Each report tracks participation as defined by gender, participation frequency, age, geographic region, market size area, income, education level and cross-sport/activity participation. The following 23 team sport reports are now available:

•       Baseball

•       Basketball

•       Cheerleading
