Journal of Sport and Recreation Management  
Year: 2016 Volume: 13 Number: 1
Authors: Ioannidou E. Ph D.
Pages: 1-15
Abstract:
The reason of this study was to explore if there is a connection between transformational-transactional leadership and job satisfaction of the section leaders and team leaders in the private children’s camp and to examine possible transformations in the relationship between section leaders and team leaders. The measurement of the transformational-transactional leadership was done with Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire- short form-MLQ by Bass & Avolio, (1995). The measurement of job satisfaction was done with Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire – short-form - MSQ by Dawis & Lofquist, (1984). The sample of the survey consisted of 817 leaders of private children’s camp and specifically 669 team leaders and 148 section leaders. The results showed that: a) there is a strong positive relationship between transformational – transactional leadership and job satisfaction of the members, b) the biggest rate of team leaders estimated that the level of transformational – transactional leadership is high, while the biggest rate of team leaders estimated the level of job satisfaction is mediocre, c) job satisfaction of the participants is high and: d) for the section leaders there is a stronger positive comparison between transformational – transactional leadership and job satisfaction, from that which exists for team leaders. The theoretical and practical applications of these results are discussed

«Greek Student attitudes toward environmental protection issues»

Journal of Sport and Recreation Management  

Year: 2016 Volume: 13 Number: 2

Authors: Kouthouris C., Zafeiroudi A., Chortiatinos G. & Kontogianni E. 

Pages:  16-27

Abstract:

 Present study was identified student’s attitudes towards environmental protection issues and investigated potential differences between these students’s that participate in exercise activities and those who did not. Participants were 300 students from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 73 men and 227 women. Three scales were used to evaluate 'perceived information', 'attitudes towards environmental protection’ and ‘predisposition adoption friendly habits on the environment' (Kouthouris & Kontogianni, 2013). The application of t-test between students who participated in exercise activities and those who did not participate revealed significant statistical differences. Particularly students who participated in exercise activities scored higher in all scales related to environmental protection than those who did not participate. Results agree with previous research data (Zafeiroudi & Hatzigeorgiadis, 2012) arguing that the more active citizens in a community express higher environmental friendly behaviors.

Abstract:

The present study aimed to study the influence of the economic crisis on the operation of the private fitness clubs in Greece.

The results showed that almost half of the fitness clubs reported a reduction in the number of their members, while almost 1/3 reported an increase in the number of their members. The vast majority of the owners of the clubs reported reductions in their annual profit due to the reduction in the price of the annual memberships and the increased taxes. It is optimistic that the majority of the owners of the clubs view the future of the fitness industry in Greece growing.
