Answer:

Although we don't subscribe to any databases with the word "sports" in their name, you can still find plenty of information if you simply consider the broader context of your question. Consider starting with a general database such as Academic Search Complete that would cover a wide variety of athletics-related topics. Is there a business aspect to your question? Are you interested in the economics of professional sports or the sporting goods industry? Try finding articles and industry analysis in Business Source Complete. Are you interested in the health aspects of sports, perhaps the value of personal training or the risks of steroid use? Then consider Health Source: Academic ...Student athletes and impact on academic performance? Then consider ERIC and other education-related databases...Fan culture or soccer hooliganism? Try Sociological Abstracts ...Sports psychology? PsycInfo is a pretty obvious choice. Feel free to run your topic by a librarian and we'll be glad to make database recommendations and also point out the value of key print resources if you are able to come into the library.
