Panel Discussion Sponsored by the Association of Students in Kinesiology

The Association of Students in Kinesiology (A.S.K.), in conjunction with the Department of Kinesiology, plans to host a panel discussion about the role of parenting in youth athletics. The discussion will be broadcast via compressed video to other universities with kinesiology student organizations and will include members from area youth leagues, sports officials, and coaches.

The goal of the association is to begin a semi-annual lecture series on topics relating to health, physical education, recreation, fitness, and sports. The A.S.K. hopes that the series will establish ULM as a leader in bringing these issues to the local community, as well as help recruit future students to ULM.

The organization has purchased a newly created video about this issue, which will be shown at the beginning of the evening. Once completed, each panel member will be asked to provide a short comment on the video and/or their take on the issue of parenting in athletics. The floor will then be open for a question and answer session.

The date is tentatively set for August 31, from 6:30-8 p.m. in Strauss Hall, Room 148. For further information please contact Mark Doherty, A.S.K. Advisor at 342-3155.
