Dear all,

Our women's volleyball coach requires each of her players spend at least
3 hours a week in our Learning Center.  This is the first time that one
of our coaches has required this for our players.  We tried Study Tables
(i.e., required study hall) before I started five years ago with no
success.  

If the athletes do not visit the center, they meet with the coach.  If
they continue to not visit the center, they meet with the coach, the
athletic director, and keep the bench warm for the rest of the players.


We have a brand new learning center space this year and have been
promoting it as a place for academic support and resources.  It also
helps that our women's volleyball coach (who is also our women's
basketball coach) works as an administrative assistant in our office.
:-) 

She is going to speak with our men's basketball coach and persuade him
to follow the same policy.  We tend to have more academic issues with
the men than the women.

Subject: Collaboration with the Athletic Department

Hello,

In what ways, if any, does your learning center collaborate with the
coaches and teams?  Do you offer specific tutoring times, workshops,
study tables?  Do the athletes come to your learning center, or is there

another area earmarked for teams' study skills and/or tutoring
assistance? What is your method of record keeping?  Do you report about
athletes' attendance to the coaches?  If so, using what method?

Please reply either to the listserv or to me alone.  Thank you very
much.
