United States Sports Academy Vice President Dr. T.J. Rosandich is teaching a course in Thailand from 1-5 February as part of the Academy’s 2010 International Certification in Sports Management (ICSM) in conjunction with the Sports Authority of Thailand (SAT).

For nearly four decades, the Academy has provided programs in sport education to students throughout the nation and to 60 countries across the globe. It has a long-standing relationship with the SAT, sending instructors to Thailand to teach certification courses in the sports management and sports coaching programs. The SAT is Thailand’s primary sport organization and plays a vital role in the development of sport.

Dr. Rosandich earned both his master’s and doctoral degrees at the Academy. In addition to having oversight responsibility for the Academy’s administrative and financial functions, he also chairs the Technology Committee and is responsible for international programs. Dr. Rosandich rejoined the staff at the Academy’s main campus in 1994 after spending nine years in Saudi Arabia, where he was general manager of Saudi American Sports. In addition to running the company, based in Riyadh, Dr. Rosandich also served in other roles during his stay in the Middle East, such as the development of sports programs in the Arabian Gulf region and as the advisor to the President of the General Organization for Youth and Sports in Bahrain. A published author, Dr. Rosandich has served as a member of the Academy faculty, teaching in both the graduate degree and international certification programs.
