Our institution, like many I am sure, has increased its conversations

  • May 9, 2021

about interdepartmental collaboration and challenged us to look for natural intersections amongst our peers.  As a member of our Athletics Department, that’s exciting to me because I (in the same vein as the amazing John Wooden) see my job as a teacher of sport.  And as an educator, I look forward to the opportunity to work with professors and link their field of study with mine…volleyball.

In my mind, the possibilities are endless!  Let me share a few of my ideas for collaborative projects between athletics and academics. Visit :- ยูฟ่าเบท 888

Physics: A natural connection!  Motion through space, energy, force…I’m excited just writing about it.  What if you could get a Physics professor to come to your practice and measure the amount of force is generated when two padded football players collide?

Religious Studies: The beginning of the season is all about faith, right?  Every team believes in something that they don’t see…that if they work hard, that they’ll receive the benefits of said work.  Hook up with folks in your Religious Studies department and have them chat with your team about leaders in the past who dreamed and believed and hoped in things that had not yet come to fruition.

Women’s Studies: Have a professor come in and talk to your team about the history of women in athletics…about how we got to where we are now.  I’d bet your young ladies would be interested to hear about days when ladies who played basketball couldn’t cross half court lest they get too tired.

English: There are many, many books written by coaches, as well as strategic manuals about there.  Maybe you could ask your favorite English professor to bring in a couple popular books and lead a discussion of its content.

Languages: The World Cup just passed and that would be an incredible time to bring in a Spanish, or German, or Italian professor to a practice.  They could enlighten your team on the culture of whatever nation their language represents and elaborate on the popularity and importance of soccer with that particular group of people.
