About the Sport, Nutrition and Leisure in Australia Program
An exciting new program on Sport, Nutrition and Leisure has been developed for this summer in Australia! Where better to learn more about high performance sport and sport nutrition than in the land down under, where sport is life!
This trip will take you to Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Cairns and includes many once in a lifetime experiences. Students will examine sport and performance as both heavily influence the country's culture. During this two and a half week trip, students will travel throughout Eastern Australia visiting sport facilities including attending games at the Marvel stadium, rugby at the ANZ stadium and observing the Australian Iron man, to name a few. Students will also experience first hand common leisure activities in Australia such as surfing lessons and snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, as well as hiking through the Blue Mountains (the Australian version of the Grand Cayon.) In addition to these excursions, students will attend lectures and workshops to identify comparisons between United States and Australia sport, nutrition and leisure in the context of lifestyle focusing on attitudes, values, behaviors, resources and experiences. Lectures and workshops will teach students about the Aborigines, sport nutrition, strength and conditioning and high performance sport with esteemed professionals and researchers at the Australian Institute of sport.
To provide students with the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge and experience of the sport, nutrition, culture and customs of Australia.
To facilitate personal development through gaining intercultural sensitivity, feeling more connected to the wider worlds of sport and leisure;
To develop independence, confidence, and self-knowledge through international travel.
To experience short-term living in different cultures, exposure to different learning environments, increased knowledge of another part of the world, and interaction with local residents.
To develop collegiate-level reading and writing skills.
