Jan Eric Nordmo of the Rotary Club of Santa Clara will talk about the "State of the Union" with sports with the members and guests of the Rotary eClub of Silicon Valley.
This will be a discussion on the state of sports from the amateur and youth level to the professional level, focusing on issues and challenges faced by athletes, parents, officials, administrators, and fans in sports today. We'll explore whether sport is a reflection of society or society is a reflection of sport, and how the economics of sport may impact all of us. We'll cover concussions, injuries, college recruitment, gambling, sponsorship, the good, the bad and the ugly, forecasting trends, and changes in the industry.
