ASBA Launches Redesigned Website

Enhanced options, graphics, user-friendliness characterize new site

ASBA launched its redesigned web site in September. The site, www.sportsbuilders.org, which features multiple enhancements, is expected to allow for ease of use for association members, the sports industry, media and general public.

The newly redesigned home page features easy-to-find information on each of the ASBA's divisions, including Tennis, Track, Indoor and Fields. By clicking on the appropriate button on the home page, users can navigate to the home page for that division. Each division's page of the web site includes contact information for the division president, links to technical articles and position papers relevant to that division, information on awards and more.

Other features of the site include a "latest news" section with issues relevant to the sports facility construction industry. Other sections allow users to locate a builder, manufacturer or design professional, fill out an ASBA membership application or find out about the certification program, learn about upcoming meetings, get answers to frequently asked questions and purchase publications. A "media room" section allows members of the media to request technical information about sports facilities. All information on the website is presented in easy-to-read fashion and is visually attractive, adding to the user's experience.

"The ASBA is very excited about its redesigned site," says Sam Fisher, the association's chairman. "We believe it serves our members, the industry and the public much better, and that it makes information easy to find and easy to understand. ASBA's motto is 'Build It Right,' and we think the new site helps people learn more about that. Everyone knows a well-built facility adds to the user and spectator experience, and helps athletes perform better; with this site, we are hoping to help people understand how to have their facilities built right in the first place."

The new site offers a “View Leads” section that allows members (with password access) to view information on recent visitors to the site who have requested information about builders and suppliers. The “View Leads” list includes information about the visitor, the upcoming job and timeline for decisions. This enhancement to the site will be updated regularly and provide a real value to members who utilize it.
