On February 2-3 in Las Vegas SFIA hosted their 2015 LRMS where more than 100 lawyers, in-house counsels, risk managers, import/export personnel, regulatory compliance personnel, and chemical content compliance personnel from across the sports & fitness industry gathered to gain guidance and learn of ways to navigate through the changing landscape of legal risk and regulatory threats.
This March SFIA will be hosting our signature National Health Through Fitness Day, a culmination of a year round effort by the SFIA and its many sponsors and volunteers to pass major U.S. legislation to “Get America Moving”. Join us on March 3-4 to lobby Congress to pass key legislation that will help our country overcome a major epidemic, obesity and sedentary lifestyles.
At the 2014 SFIA Industry Leaders Summit in Chicago, SFIA Chairman & Mizuno, USA President Bob Puccini and SFIA President & CEO Tom Cove announced the SFIA Increase Participation Plan, the biggest initiative the sports and fitness industry has launched to increase participation. Working closely with industry partner PHIT America, SFIA outlined an attack plan to help reverse the ‘inactivity pandemic,’ and get more Americans active and playing sports.
Sports safety continues to be a major focus for coaches, parents and athletes alike, which means equipment used in high school and collegiate sports must meet the latest, and potentially more stringent, rules that will be established by governing bodies. SFIA invites sporting goods manufacturers, who have an interest in team sports, to attend the annual SFIA/NFHS/NCAA High School & University Conference on April 14, 2015 in Indianapolis.
