The section sponsors activities promoting the development and incorporation of statistical methods to games and sports applications, and the dissemination of appropriate statistical methodology throughout the world of games and sports. Get involved by joining the ASA, and the Section on Statistics in Sports.
You can join the ASA Section on Statistics in Sports by first joining the American Statistical Association, and then selecting SIS as one of the sections to join. Instructions for joining the ASA can be found on the ASA membership page. SIS Section annual dues are currently $5 for regular members, and $2 for students.
Joining the Statistics in Sports e-mail lists
The SIS maintains two e-mail lists that are open to all residing on the Google groups server; SIS-L and SIS_DISCUSS-L. The first list (SIS-L) is for SIS news and activities, and the second list (SIS_DISCUSS-L) is for free-form sports statistics discussions. To join either list through a web browser, go to the SIS-L web page or SIS_DISCUSS-L web page, and click on "Apply for group membership" on the right panel of the page. If you do not already have a google (or gmail) account, you will need to create a google account (click on "Create an account now"). Otherwise, enter your google email address and password to sign in and complete the group membership.
Alternatively, to join SIS-L or SIS_DISCUSS-L by e-mail, send a message directly to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, respectively, with a message explaining that you would like to join either or both lists.
Before you are allowed to join either list, you may need to confirm the e-mail address you provide (a confirmation note will be sent to you). After confirmed, the request will then be forwarded to the list owner for final approval.
