The organisation’s strategic priorities include informing and familiarizing the public with the practical and theoretical applications of sport management, as well as developing an awareness of the importance of establishing ethical and appropriate management practices for sports organisations in Cyprus. Additionally, CYASM aims to enable the establishment of sport management as a profession at the national level.
The Cyprus Association for Sport Management will, with the support of all relevant bodies, establish itself as the main scientific organisation on the island responsible for the handling and resolution of relevant issues concerning the aspects of sports management. Our goal is to assist in decision-making procedures undertaken by the relevant governing bodies in Cyprus, by offering guidance and support in legislative procedures and other initiatives relating to sports, but specifically concerning the aspect of sport management, including the submission of proposals to the relevant bodies and concerning issues plaguing sports in Cyprus.
CYASM seeks to offer and promote a different approach in the sports arena, by promoting the importance of scientific research with respect to issues relating to the organisational and managerial aspect of sports. Our primary objectives include developing and refining research projects relating to aspects of sport management, through the support provided by European initiatives and programs, as well as through the establishment of collaborations with universities and research agencies. Our chief objective is to adopt research findings in programmes relating to the management of sports organisations, prompting a critical re-evaluation, and fostering an environment that is conducive to a fruitful dialogue for the resolution of issues relating to all facets of sport management. Additionally, CYASM aims to provide the necessary information, knowledge, and training required for sports executives through the organisation of seminars and training programmes.
Further to the objectives outlined above, the organisation seeks to coordinate events and seminars to broaden the general public’s awareness with regards to issues relating to the management of sports. Additionally, CYASM’s goals include the publication of a scientific journal hosting studies and articles related to sport management, and the promotion of a creative and robust form of communication within the professional community in Cyprus and overseas, along with the promotion of an active participation in conferences and other events relating to CYASM’s primary domains of interest.
