The emergence of sport risk management, which includes the popular activity of cheerleading, is timely and important in reducing injuries and subsequent lawsuits. A risk management plan for cheerleading is needed to meet the unprecedented growth of the sport to reduce the number of injuries and subsequent lawsuits that often follow serious injuries. The purpose of Cheerleading and the Law is to provide important guidelines in developing risk management plans with risk management strategies to create a safe environment for cheerleaders on every level. The need for such a book is evident, and the authors hope to fill a void that exists today in the ever-growing activity of cheerleading.

Sports-related litigation continues to escalate in America year after year, due at least partially to increased pressure in the multi-billion dollar sport industry for all who are involved in the operation of sport. Risk Management in Sport: Issues and Strategies is a unique book in which 30 professionals, resembling a Who's Who of sport law and risk management, share their experiences and expertise to identify current issues confronting the industry. The mission of this book is intentionally unique. Herb Appenzeller not only identifies current issues confronting the sport industry, but also enables readers to develop risk management strategies that will assist them in setting guidelines, policies, plans and procedures making the sport industry safer and less litigious.

Managing Sport and Risk Management Strategies
by Herb Appenzeller
2nd Edition


Author Herb Appenzeller uses practical examples of sport administration gathered and used during 40 plus years as a high school and college athletics director.  He points out the various strategies that succeeded and also those that caused problems as he turned four losing programs into highly successful athletic contenders.

In this second edition, thirteen additional authors and chapters have been added.  High school and collegiate athletic directors can effectively use the material in Part III, Risk Management Strategies, to operate a safe athletic program that protects the student athlete from injury and subsequent liability.  It also provides protection for the personnel and school from expensive litigation.  Part V, Appendices, has over 27 sample forms that range from mission statements, good conduct codes, drug testing policies and procedures, and sportsmanship incentive programs, and accident/injury reports. The new chapters deal with current issues that confront administrators such as sportsmanship, violence in sport, due process, hazing, and event management.  The text is extremely helpful to athletic directors in their important work with coaches and other personnel.  It includes evaluating criteria, exit interview questions, and employment guidelines.  This text can be used by students majoring in recreation/sport management programs who hope to work in the sports industry.  However, anyone who administrates a program and works with people can benefit from this book.
