Accessibility and Use of Recreational Sports Facilities at Florida's Community Colleges.
De Michele, Douglas
In an effort to determine the percent of use of sports facilities on Florida community college campuses, a survey was sent to community college presidents and campus recreation directors throughout the Florida Community College System (FCCS). The survey, distributed to all 25 branch campuses and 28 primary campuses in the system, was designed to determine the size of the facilities, and the percent of use by the athletic program, the physical education program, and the campus recreation program. To supplement the data provided in the 24 returned questionnaires, additional information was gathered from past research and personal observations of facilities. Study findings included the following: (1) 79% of the FCCS campuses had gymnasium; (2) 22% of the use of the gymnasiums was for community recreational activities; (3) 84% of the campuses provided weight rooms for their student body, with 30% of their use for community recreational activities; (4) 49% had multi-purpose rooms (17% community recreation); (5) 51% had rooms designated for aerobic dance (15% community recreation); (6) martial arts facilities were available at 32% of the campuses (18% community recreation); (7) 26% had aquatic facilities (47% community recreation); (8) 84% had tennis courts (52% community recreation); and (9) 60% had a softball field, 21% had a golf range, 56% had fitness trails, 63% had a baseball field, and 23% had an archery field. Detailed data tables are included. (PAA)
