The ASU Men's Gymnastics Team has had a rich tradition rooted in success for over 60 years. Since being dropped from the NCAA in 1993, this team has fought to regain NCAA status as well as continue the tradition of men's gymnastics at Arizona State. Despite the adversity that the sport of collegiate men's gymnastics has faced in terms of a nationwide loss of funding, the ASU team continued to grow over the past three years and serve as an example to struggling college programs looking to combat a loss of funding and scholarships. Marketing plays an instrumental role in the journey towards re-instatement into the NCAA. Through digital marketing, direct marketing, business partnerships and detailed market segmentation, this organization has made strides towards achieving its goal of re-gaining Division 1 status as an organization. Evidence of continued growth of fundraising has allowed the team to attract recruits as well as gain more exposure as a team through competing at higher profile competitions both in the United States and abroad. Fundraising success paired with a restructured social media strategy and approach has translated to increased support and exposure for this program. From a digital perspective, the program has stayed ahead of the curve in terms of digital marketing strategy relating to video production, website design and crowd funding. Partnerships with businesses and gymnastics support organizations have furthered the ASU Men's Gymnastics teams mission and goals. These partnerships have stimulated our relationship with our community as well as provided us with countless funds and opportunities to continue to grow as a program.

The Implications of the Interim NIL Policy on College Athletics

On September 30, 2019, the Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, signed the Fair Pay to Play Act which prohibited universities from taking away an athlete’s scholarship should they choose to profit off their name, image and likeness (NIL). This was a monumental moment in college athletics as numerous lawsuits against the NCAA had been filed by former and current athletes due to the unfair nature of “amateurism.” With California getting the ball rolling and the Supreme Court pressuring the NCAA to change their outdated ways, the NCAA withdrew their rule stating that student athletes could not monetize their NIL. While this was a massive step forward in regard to compensating athletes for the time and effort they put into their sport that in turn generates revenue for the school, it also posed many questions that needed an in-depth look into including how this will affect non-revenue generating sports. This study aims to measure the student-athlete knowledge surrounding name, image, and likeness, as well as capture the athletes, coaches, and administrators' projections of the future implications of this policy. On the surface, this is a wonderful opportunity for college athletes. However, with the variability in the popularity and profitability between revenue generating and non-revenue generating sports, this does not put student-athletes on a level playing field to profit off their name, image, and likeness. With non-revenue generating sports falling vastly behind revenue generating sports, a further divide between these two segments of collegiate sports will form. Though there is an opportunity for all collegiate athletes to profit off their name, image, and likeness, the feasibility of putting these athletes on a level playing field is slim. In addition, with this new era comes a whole new set of rules for recruiting tactics and the desire to get more influential athletes. The data collected for this thesis, in conjunction with this new rule, implies that sports producing more influential athletes will be given more money as more eyes will be on the individual athletes. This will leave smaller sports behind because it will continue to create a divide between revenue generating and non-revenue generating sports. This gap will be created by increasing the publicity and recognition surrounding the revenue generating sports, while pushing less relevant sports further behind.
