Our Teams

Projects

SAGB’s Projects team focuses on a plethora of different data-driven research projects. Some of these are part of consulting work for organizations like the San Francisco Giants or Cleveland Cavaliers, and some are independent, created and worked on solely by the members of the Projects team. Members of this team have participated and presented at multiple hackathons, analytics conferences, and more!

Data Journalism

The SAGB Data Journalism team researches many varying sports topics throughout the semester, bridging the gap between analytics and sports journalism. The team publishes both completely objective articles as well as opinion pieces that are backed up with strong data. Published works have covered everything from the rise of analytics in cricket to comparing the biggest names in soccer and basketball, so there’s always new and exciting content being crafted.

Business

The Business team of SAGB is responsible for raising funds, managing the club’s social media presence, and facilitating events for the Berkeley community. Additionally, the business team also consults for sports organizations, allowing members to critically solve business problems and produce effective deliverables. The team is looking to take on even more consulting projects in the future, expanding the club’s breadth of work.
