In this article we show and explain two proposals for application in the appraisal of programmes of activities and services in sports centers that, in a very graphic manner, might help to improve these.
In many cases, the programming of annual activities is done on the basis of the previous year –in the same way and with few modifications–. It is frequently a routine that in many cases leaves little room for reflection and decision-taking.
On the other hand, it is necessary to bear in mind that in a sector such as this one in which services are “sold”, very often the participation figures and costs are not the only referents to assess –especially in the public sector–.
It is not usual to analyse the programmes and relate the real interest for the group to which these are offered and the cost involved in carrying these out. On occasions, the “obligation” to continue offering established programmes, or the “affinity” and “tastes” of programmers for certain activities, influence the sports programmes and services offered.
With the exposition of this self-valuation methodology for the appraisal and an example of a practical case, we offer a practical tool for the tasks in sport management.

Keywords: Appraisal Programmes, Programming Activities, Self-Valuation, Sport Management, Sports Facilities.
