Abstract

High school basketball facilities have long been an integral component of athletics, physical education, and community programs, yet little scientific literature exists on these vital venues. This study assessed components of scholastic basketball venues and analyzed strengths and challenges associated with these facilities. An electronic survey was sent to all boys and girls head high school basketball coaches in a Midwestern state within the United States. This study analyzed data by calculating descriptive statistics for a number of facility components. Content analysis revealed that Condition and Design were perceived as strengths associated with the scholastic basketball facilities, while Ancillary Areas and Equipment were challenges. Future research should expand this methodology to regional and national populations.Subscribe to TPE
