MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR. 2015 - 2016

On behalf of The Division of Recreational Sports, we would like to thank our members and the greater campus community for another incredible year. Throughout 2015-16, we have seen tremendous innovation, teamwork, and foresight as we take our first steps into the Master Plan. After finishing the Near West Playfield upgrade in Spring 2017, we will pivot to the major 2017 Master Plan projects in progress: the decommissioning of the Southeast Recreational Facility in Summer 2017, the pre-design of the Unit II/Natatorium, and the Nielsen Tennis Stadium Fitness and Wellness Center. We are focused on keeping the campus community both informed and involved while our facilities evolve over the next several years. Although the Master Plan is certainly the prime focus for many, my vision continues to be emphasizing the investment in our human capital. We have created our own internal Engagement, Inclusion, and Diversity Committee within the Division, aimed at making sure we have an engaged workforce that is welcoming to all people. We have increased our employee onboarding efforts by creating a Blended Learning model to train our 700 student employees, and have cultivated a staff whose work feels productive and impactful, regardless of position.

4

As a Division, we continue to grow. Our facilities were used 1.6 million times in the past year, enough to fill Camp Randall Stadium to capacity twenty times, or three completely sold-out football seasons. We added four new professional staff and promoted three existing staff into leadership roles. Our Internship Program is one of the most sought after in the country by future professionals. The leadership, commitment, and collaboration of our new and existing staff has been unprecedented, moving our Division toward a new and unattained level in our history. We are proud to inspire our university community to play hard, get fit, and live well. All Ways Forward,

John A. Horn Director of Recreational Sports

MEMBER SERVICES. We Think Big.

2015 - 2016

In the spring of 2016, the Member Services team began in-person and lively conversations with the Rec Sports Think Big Member Panel. Our goal with the Panel is to hear directly from the membership base on several topics including daily operations improvements, equipment testing, and to receive feedback on new SERF designs. We had interest from 55 UW-Madison students, employees, and alumni, with 30 unique attendees meeting 6 times throughout the year.

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT. Rec Sports values the growth and development of all student employees. The Division strives to provide opportunities for meaningful and enjoyable experiences while teaching transferable skills that apply to any career path they pursue. The Student Recreational Leadership Council (SRLC) is a committee of 15 Rec Sports student employees who brainstorm ways to develop students and promote a positive staff culture. This year, the committee implemented a consistent and equitable hierarchy, pay scale, and merit-based pay increases for student workers across all areas of the Division. In April 2016, the SRLC organized the inaugural Student Employee Awards Banquet, thanking more than 100 employees in attendance for their hard work and recognizing their accomplishments at Rec Sports.

WORKING FOR REC SPORTS HAS HONESTLY BEEN ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS OF MY COLLEGE CAREER BY FAR. IT HAS POSITIVELY IMPACTED MY LIFE IN NEARLY EVERY WAY FROM PROVIDING NEW FRIENDSHIPS, TO DEVELOPING PROFESSIONAL AND LEADERSHIP SKILLS, TO BUILDING LASTING RELATIONSHIPS WITH MY SUPERIORS. Member Services Lead


ENGAGEMENT, INCLUSIVITY, & DIVERSITY. Rec Sports held its inaugural Student Employee Diversity Forum in April 2016. This forum included activities and open discussion to spark much needed conversations about campus climate, tensions, respect, and tolerance. Student Employees were also re-introduced to resources within Rec Sports and on campus that can support students in troubling circumstances in regards to diversity and inclusion. Rec Sports plans to continue these forums in future semesters. To continue annual efforts to improve engagement, inclusivity, and diversity within Rec Sports, an internal E.I.D. Committee was created. The makeup of this team includes representatives from all different positions of the staff hierarchy: from Intern to Director. This committee is

responsible for setting annual goals, planning E.I.D. related events and trainings, and recommending changes to day-to-day operations to provide a more welcoming and inclusive staff culture among Rec Sports employees. Our students are our frontline. Rec Sports values the roles our student employees play in providing leadership within E.I.D. in our facilities, programs, and services. We conducted our first-ever E.I.D. Student Survey this year to better understand the climate within our staff. Over 85 students replied with their thoughts, concerns, and ideas for bettering our community. Rec Sports professional staff will use this information to develop further training needs to help continue to improve our environment.

DIRECTOR’S AWARD RECIPIENT.

Student employee John Pape had an incredible impact in many areas of our Division this year. John was instrumental in creating the first ever Badger Student Official’s Association, he served as Chair of the Student Recreation Leadership Council, and served on the core team for both the Near West Playfield upgrade and the Southeast Facility Replacement project. Finally, John was asked by the Chancellor and the UW Foundation to represent the Division of Recreational Sports Master Plan and the University at the All Ways Forward Fundraising Campaign event in Chicago, Illinois. His involvement and dedication to our Division this year has been outstanding.

REC SPORTS HAS REALLY DEFINED MY COLLEGE EXPERIENCE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN. MY JOB THROUGH COMPETITIVE SPORTS HAS LED ME TO DEVELOP AS A PROFESSIONAL, AN OFFICIAL, AND HUMAN BEING. THROUGH REC SPORTS, I HAVE MADE MANY LIFE-LONG FRIENDSHIPS WITH STUDENTS AND PROFESSIONALS ALIKE. I AM TRULY VERY BLESSED FOR THE OPPORTUNITIES AND ACCOLADES THAT HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO ME. FORTUNATELY, I HAVE ALSO BEEN BLESSED WITH SOME FABULOUS MENTORS, STUDENT AND PROFESSIONAL ALIKE. John Pape, Student Employee and Director’s Award Recipient


FACILITY HIGHLIGHT: PTC. Our brand-new Performance Training Center (PTC) opened its doors in January 2016. Since then, we have seen a steady increase in usage by our members, taking advantage of our Olympic Weight Lifting classes. The PTC also allowed us to expand our programming of small group training, such as Bucky Fit and TRXtreme, which make use of performance equipment. Our Sport Clubs have also benefited from the usage of this performance space through sport-specific performance training provided by our Personal Training staff.

Live Well.” mentality with school aged children of all skill levels. It is a day of movement based activities led entirely by UWMadison students. In total over 120 school-aged children participated in the two events which included learning skills of different sports and martial arts, running an obstacle course, dancing and having fun.

DAY OF PLAY PROVIDES A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR REC SPORTS TO REACH OUT BEYOND THE UW-MADISON COMMUNITY. IT'S AN INSANELY FUN, HIGH-ENERGY EVENT THAT OUR STAFF LOOKS FORWARD TO EVERY SEMESTER. BETTER YET, IT ALLOWS COLLEGE ROLE MODELS TO INTERACT WITH FUTURE BADGERS IN A WAY THAT ENCOURAGES KIDS TO BE ACTIVE EVERY DAY. Stephanie Bruno, MSO Lead and Lead Organizer of Day of Play

LIGHT OF THE MOON HOMECOMING 5K. 30 The inaugural Light of the Moon Homecoming 5k saw 500 runners along the beautiful shore of Lake Mendota during Homecoming week. The Division of Recreational Sports and Homecoming Committee came together to put on this unique race under the moon, stars and the downtown skyline reflecting off the lake. It was a great success and we are excited to continue growing the event each year.


Rockin’ with Rec Sports. This late-night event for students provides an introduction to many of Rec Sports’ program offerings and partners. This year more than 800 students took part in free activities like bubble soccer, Badger Ninja Warrior, a Personal Trainer obstacle course, glow Zumba & fitness classes, and more. Our campus partners and sponsors featured a B-cycle race, Fontana Sports prizes, food from UW Housing, giveaways from DoIT, and more. New students, loyal members, and the whole campus community are energized and invigorated at our biggest kickoff event of the year, Rockin’ with Rec Sports.


MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS. Rec Sports Website.

2015 - 2016

Our Marketing and Communications team has worked diligently to maintain and continue innovating the Rec Sports website. We leveraged Google Analytics, departmental feedback, user insights, and current trends in web design to focus the direction of our processes and decisionmaking. We continually strive to provide a more user-friendly experience online for our members. We shape our content so that everyone can easily find the information they need.

This year we have developed a team of student webmasters who provide professional support and edits for our website. Our Division is proud to be able to offer improved communication to our members and participants with the help our our talented student staff.


#ActiveBadger Videos. Since 2013, when the #ActiveBadger hashtag was created, we have strived to develop its meaning for our members: an inclusive hashtag for any Badger to use during healthy activities on or off campus. This past year our focus was to develop the human element through #ActiveBadger videos that highlighted a single Badger and their activity. With just twelve videos we were able to cultivate nearly 50,000 views with an organic reach of over 200,000.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS.

To complete our vision of a Business Hub, we added a third Financial Specialist, Joan Kazel, to oversee cash and inventory management and record daily expenses. Two students were hired to help the Business Hub with reconciliation and reporting procedures. This gives us the opportunity to introduce these students to our day-to-day operations, which then supports their goals of attaining experience in their financial field of choice upon graduation. Fund 101 instructional support decreased 4.4% from FY16 to $387,169 and related expenses were $387,167. In FY17, funding support in Fund 101 will decrease by about 2% to $379,422.
