OUR MISSION

The Huddle Up Group's mission is to empower sports organizations to create a positive impact on their communities through key collaboration and engagement. 


HOW CAN WE HELP YOUR ORGANIZATION?  

Our team members understand your challenges and provide proven insights.  But we aren’t just about giving you the map and telling you where to go.  We provide you with the vehicle to get there, and we’re with you every step of the way to ensure your success!

The Huddle Up Group was selected as the winner of the 2017 NASC Superior Service Award, the highest honor a consulting firm can earn from the National Association of Sports Commissions.


Here are some areas where our experts can help your organization thrive:

STRATEGIC PLANNING

We have led projects for DMOs, CVBs, sports commissions, cities, counties, states, and also several NGBs and event rights holders.  We utilize a proven 5-step process to develop a strategic sports tourism game plan, and we work post-delivery to help our clients implement our recommendations.

VENUE FEASIBILITY STUDIES

Our team has led new venue Feasibility Studies, developed strategic plans for the enhancement of existing facilities, and we have conducted regional venue inventories.  Our philosophy always includes the sports marketing and programming side of the venue puzzle - without a marketing plan and the right human capital behind it, new and enhanced venues likely won't reach their potential for the host community.

SPEAKING OPPORTUNITIES

Members of our leadership team have served as featured speakers at more than three dozen sports tourism related conferences over the years.  We have led breakouts, been panelists, served as keynote speakers, and have even moderated sessions on behalf of our clients.  No matter the format or duration of the program, our team can help deliver relevant and engaging content at your sports related session.

BEST PRACTICES FOR SERVICING SPORTS GROUPS 

One of the most important elements in putting on a successful championship event is serving our guests.  Best practices in hosting and producing these events is something our clients have asked for the most.  In 2017, we are launching a new book and accompanying training program to address this need.  The program, titled "Sports Service" will be available in March of 2017. 

 

 

STAFFING SEARCH  

On a select and limited basis, our team offers staffing search services to the sports tourism industry.  Our search methodology is extremely targeted, affordable, and ONLY applicable to sports tourism related positions.
