Reports can also be ordered on the other 80+ sports/activities which are listed in the SGMA/American Sports Data SuperStudy of Sports Participation -- on a case-by-case basis. Those other sports/activities range from fitness pursuits like treadmills to water sports such as scuba diving to team sports like tackle football to individual sports like fly fishing. This “special order” research will take three business days to complete and can be ordered through www.SGMA.com.

For SGMA full and associate members, the reports are $95. For non-members, the reports $125.00 for non-members. They are available in the Adobe PDF format.
