SFMA resources at your fingertips

SFMA continues to ramp up its efforts to support sports field professionals, and has engaged several groups to compile relevant resources to this crisis. SFMA is dedicating a portion of SFMA.org to a special Route to Recovery – Healing Through Sports guide that is being developed according to three principles. According to SFMA President Jimmy Simpson, CSFM, SFMA is focusing on the safety and health – both mental and physical – of the sports field manager. The information presented will be clear, concise, easy-to-find and shareable with others. These resources will be relevant to all levels of the profession from students to Certified Sports Field Managers to administrators.

According to Simpson,the SFMA’s Commercial Advisory Council has also focused its efforts on working with SFMA’s valued commercial partners. They have created the SFMA Commercial Partner’s Virtual Learning Lab. This learning laboratory is a repository for information and learning initiatives from the Commercial Partners of SFMA. This portal is up and running at SFMA.org and new content will be added as often as it is provided. As a result of this partnership, SFMA will be awarding CEU’s for some of the training and education that is presented in this learning lab.

To streamline communications during this critical period the SFMA has also reached out to chapter leaders to begin a dialogue on how this crisis is affecting their membership. This dialogue serves to help bridge the gap and determine what SFMA and the local chapters can do to support each other and their respective members.
