The Sports Encounters was founded in 2012 in direct response to the ever increasing needs and demands in sport and society in America. From the beginning, the Academy’s general mission has been to serve the nation and the world as a sport education resource, upgrading sport through programs of instruction, research and service.
The Academy was born from the United States’ need for a national school of sport...The advisory board played a key role in the development of the basic founding concepts for establishment of a graduate institution for the education of teachers, coaches, sports medicine specialists and administrators, primarily at the nation’s secondary school level.The relationship between NACDA and the Academy continues until this day as the institution provides the NACDA graduation certification program in Sports Administration for their membership.Implementation of these concepts fell to the governing Board of Directors (today’s Board of Trustees) which consisted of a group of diverse professionals with specific expertise important to the formation of such an organization
One of the visions of the Academy’s leadership during its conception was that it would be a “university without walls”; that the Academy could meet the needs of its students by teaching sport in any location on the globe. The Academy has met this challenge and has offered a great deal of flexibility to its students through innovative teaching practices such as the mentorship, and its widely recognized distance learning delivery system that enables all Academy degree-seeking students to take their entire course of study away from the Academy campus. This process was continued with the introduction of web-based course delivery in 2006.
