Summary

Risk management is one of the hottest topics in sport today, and a relatively new companion to sport law. Risk management has important implications for businesses, the insurance and medical industries, and other areas of sport management where minimizing loss exposure is critical to the avoidance of expensive lawsuits in this unprecedentedly litigious age.The list of authors is a who's who in risk management in sport. They share their knowledge of their areas of expertise in forty-three chapters, including ten new chapters covering playground safety, fitness center safety, automated external defibrillators, a risk management checklist for sport administrators, an update on Title IX, liability of property owners association and recreation programs, and trends in risk management for physical activity programs. The material in the first edition has been updated where appropriate, and this unique text covers a multitude of risk management issues and strategies to deal with them. Risk Management in Sport is an important addition to the Carolina Academic Press series of sport management and risk management texts. It is an essential book for the sport administrator, and a valuable resource for all associated with sport.
