Key Industry Affairs Services and Activities

ASTM Liaison
Over the past year, SFIA has worked with our Soccer Industry Council of America (SICA) group to form an American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) working group relating to the issue of soccer goal standards. Working with SFIA members, we help solve common issues relating to standards, including consulting members for their views on potential standards changes.

Get in the Game
SFIA supports, Get in the Game, which is a program built within the Sporting Goods Industry dedicated to getting the industry what it needs: individuals who possess the skills and talents to be innovators of modern brands and technologies that are leading the consumer goods market.

NOCSAE
Protective equipment used in team sports at the high school, collegiate and professional level must meet NOCSAE standards. SFIA representation insures these standards are equitable and consistently applied.

The SFIA Committees & Councils
Through the Fitness Council, the SFIA represents fitness equipment manufacturers in several areas including accurate insights into the industry, forums to address common issues and finding ways to get Americans more active.

One of the strengths of the SFIA is to bring companies and people together with common values and interests to tackle issues. The committees or groups listed below have aligned through or with the SFIA. Click on any of the committee names for more information about the committee activities.
