Clients with needs for custom studies turn to SFC for our ability to turn a need or an idea into reality. Using our market researchers, analysts, operational expertise, and experience in more than 2,500 communities, our team can create a completely custom, innovative solution for you. 

These custom tools and studies provide critical insight and working data to tourism bureaus, park and recreation agencies, and municipal governments. This allows clients and users to make informed decisions, measure the impact of their work, or create compelling reports. These studies often have a multi-city, county, or state-wide scope in topics ranging from the health impacts of parks to the economic impact of sports centers.

To get started, please contact us by phone or email. We will schedule time for you to explain your project needs, goals, and objectives. Following this meeting(s), we will create a custom proposal and project plan for your consideration.

State of Florida

In one of SFA’s most important initiatives, SFA worked with Florida Recreation and Park Association, the Center for Disease Control, the Florida Sports Foundation, and dozens of other professionals and organizations to demonstrate the impact of parks across several impact areas, including property values, tourism spending, job creation, environmental savings, public safety, and health care cost savings. The Parks Impact Calculator is educating and empowering parks and recreation professionals as well as elected officials throughout the State to recognize the value of places and programs to play, and the reports that are generated by the calculator are being used to inform funding decisions for parks systems all over Florida. The Florida Parks Impact Calculator is now being used as the baseline for similar state-specific calculators SFA is producing around the country.

State of Michigan

In one of the most comprehensive state-wide studies of the economic impact of sports ever conducted, SFA worked with ten destination marketing organizations across the State of Michigan to determine the contribution of youth and amateur sports on the State’s economy. In total, SFA evaluated and reported on more than 430 events that bring more than $320 million in visitor spending annually throughout Michigan.
