Opis: The purpose of the research was to find the differences in motor abilities between Slovenian gymnasts and Serbian gymnasts. We tested 94 male gymnasts from Slovenia and Serbia who were nine to fourteen years old and at the time of testing had been competing for at least two years. We classified gymnasts into three different age groups according to the competition system. We found that statistically significant differences between Slovenian and Serbian gymnasts existed in 18 out of 27 variables and were mostly in favour of Slovenian gymnasts. Most of the differences were detected in specific motor abilities. In our opinion Slovenian gymnasts performed the tests better mostly because of the lack of coaching knowledge and lack of working conditions in Serbian gymnastics.

HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN SPORTS ORGANIZATIONSMihaela Breznik
, 2014, magistrsko delo
Opis: Human resources in sport organizations is a challenging task in the context of changing technologies, workforce composition and work patterns, community expectations, employee expectations, employment legislation, and the increasing impact of global competition. This master’s thesis took a brief look at different approaches to human resource management that can help sport organizations respond to these challenges. We attempted to locate these approaches within various theoretical and regulatory contexts. We explored the activities of front line managers and supervisors in hiring, motivating, rewarding, and retaining both employees and volunteers.
Human resources management is about the overall process of managing people in organizations, so that they are motivated and able to perform to their potential and thus maximize the overall effectiveness of the organization in meeting its goals. It provides an integrated framework for making decisions about the people in an organization, who to appoint, how to reward good performance, what motivates people to perform to their full capacity, how to determine training and development needs, and when to let people go. We tried to explore the basics of human resources management in sports organizations and how the human resources approach conceptualizes the fundamentals of hiring, performance appraisal, compensation systems, and other human resources functions in sports organizations.
We discussed the contemporary sport organization and how a human resources perspective can help it to attain its goals. In parallel with this, it considers today’s people management challenges and opportunities and the effective management of individuals who come to work and volunteer in sport organizations, by addressing such aspects as their competencies, personality, needs, values, and beliefs. The nature and attributes of workgroups in which individuals find themselves are also considered as this is a fundamental part of the context of human resources in sport organizations.
However, some sports organizations have had paid employees, often coaches, for years. Increasingly, sport is employing a variety of resource people to support and extend the work of club volunteers – these include operating staff, managers and coaches. They are becoming more and more important to the smooth operation of the club, league or association.
At the same time, human resource management has become more complex and can make a significant impact on employee productivity and the bottom line. More organizations need to pay attention to human resources by ensuring their business planning process includes human resource issues. Whether you’re implementing new technology, reducing costs, expanding, or experiencing a major change within your organization – all of these impact your human resources and should be addressed in your strategic plan.

Opis: The concepts of learning organization and organizational learning have made a significant contribution to the development of some major global companies such as Nokia, Oracle, Microsoft and others. This article explores whether the learning organization concept has proved successful in sports, specifically in ski jumping. The study was conducted among ski jumpers who compete in the World Cup. The questionnaire was distributed to 130 ski jumpers, and 54 correctly completed questionnaires were returned. The study has indicated that ski jumping is a sport of distinct individualists. Individual talent is an extremely important factor for success in this sport. We can say with absolute certainty that all surveyed ski jumpers are able to take 16th to 50th place in a World Cup race. The differences between competitors are very minor, even in the biggest races. Therefore, when it comes to success, every single detail matters. We have identified a weak correlation between the best sporting achievement and collaboration in the testing of new equipment. In the past, some of the best results were achieved on the basis of experimentation, but contemporary coaches do not dare to over-experiment with the technique. Too frequent progress measurements place a burden on competitors. There is a positive correlation between the frequency of individual analysis and the success of a competitor, while the best achievement and variables from “team work” group are negatively correlated. The relationships within a team are obviously very complex.

Word-formational productivity of the Slovene language in the case of sports neologismsIrena Stramljič Breznik
, Ines Voršič
, 2011, izvirni znanstveni članek
Opis: Newly created words are a frequent topic of research in modern linguistics. The reason for this is that innovation processes in lexicon are a reflection of dynamic tendencies which occur as a consequence of modern communication requirements. This contribution focuses on the field of sports, using a corpus approach based on the Sketch Engine (SkE). It investigates formations in Slovene with low frequency (e.g. nogometoljubec, karatejka, sankijada). Based on their morphemic structure, it determines whether they are potential neologisms, which are created according to a productive pattern, or nonce formations, which are created according to individual patterns connected with specific text usage, and which as ad-hoc formations do not belong to the productive word-formational patterns. In light of these findings, the question of the combinations of domestic and foreign word-formational elements will be discussed, and consequently also the question of the hybridization of Slovene formations today. The corpus-based approach will enable us to determine whether the analysed material represents a word-formational core or periphery of the lexicon. In order to detect new lexical processes, it is necessary to investigate atypical word-formational processes which open up the creative potential of language. They testify to the dynamic nature of language and to its capability to respond to the different needs of different users in different circumstances.

Opis: Sport involvement among children and adolescents has been a central field of research in sport science since years. This paper documents the participation of 11- to 15-year-olds in sport clubs and informal sport activities in Liechtenstein and examines possible gender- and age-specific differences. The analysis is based on four cross-sectional studies from 2004 to 2015 and includes the data of 1262 children in primary (5th grade) and secondary (7th and 9th grades) school. According to our findings sports and exercise are considered to be one of the main leisure-time activities for all school levels (irrespective of gender). The percentage of fully sport-abstinent adolescents by 11- and 13-year-olds is about 5 %; by 15-year-olds is around 10 %. The culmination of sports club membership (with current 84.7 %) appears to be at the age of 11 (5th grade). After the switch to secondary school the sports club commitment tends to decrease, while the high attendance of the informal sport activities (>85 %) shows relatively stable age development. In contrast to other child and youth studies, our data indicates a levelling tendency and dissolution of classic gender differences not only in sports club commitment but also in informal sports among girls and boys.

The second thematic section includes extended abstracts on the topic of sports tourism, a specific category of tourism that has been developing rapidly with more and more visitors coming to major international sports events and also more and more visitors actively seeking sports related vacation. The last section presents extended abstracts on accessible tourism, nowadays increasingly important area arising from the principles of ensuring equal opportunities and promoting social inclusion in tourism. All the extended abstracts provide scientific views on selected topics, and, thus, bring additional knowledge into the particular field of tourism.
