It is with great pleasure that we are announcing a new relationship with the European College of Sport Science (ECSS). Based in Cologne, Germany, ECSS is an international non-profit organization founded in 1995. Its purpose is the promotion of science and research, with special attention to the interdisciplinary fields of sport science and sports medicine.

The Academy is certain that this new relationship will cultivate a culture of collaboration on sports related research and academic sharing to advance the sports profession. We view this as a mutually beneficial development not only for the institutions, but to our faculty students as well.
