Scheduled Meetings for Fall 2017 - Tuesday, October 10th at 6 p.m. in the Lantz Club Room
The KSS Club is a registered student organization open to all students in the major concentration areas of: Exercise Science, Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE), and Sports Management. The club meets 3 times during the fall and spring semesters. The club has professional meetings as well as social events. Each major concentration area may meet more times per semester as determined by each of the separate groups.
The KSS Club mission is to assemble KSS students into an organization dedicated to the advancement of all individuals by helping to create a better understanding of wellness, exercise, injury prevention and rehabilitation, and positive sport environments; as well as establishing networks in the KSS profession.
The primary goal of the EIU Kinesiology and Sports Studies Club is to provide support and learning opportunities for the knowledge and skills needed for careers in teaching, coaching, athletic training, fitness, exercise science, and sport management careers. Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement as it pertains to physical activity, exercise, and sport. During the last 20 years, kinesiology studies have become an integral and essential part of cultivating a healthy and competitive society, with initiatives and programs impacting a broad spectrum of society.
Meeting Structure: Each meeting begins with a 5-10 minute social/snacks/icebreaker, followed by a work session pertaining to the KSS Club Focus Activity for each semester (approx. 30 min.). After the work session, there will be a break-out session for each of the 4 discipline groups (approx. 30 min. or longer as each group needs). Meetings will last approximately one (1) hour. Social events are designed for students in the club to interact with each other through a variety of fun activities (examples: bowling, bags, softball, volleyball, etc.). Each of the 4 discipline groups may schedule additional meetings throughout the year at their discretion. The club encourages students to be active members in the KSS Club and their respective discipline specific club activities.

Note: Each club assigned to the given Focus Activity would drive the discussion for committees such as technology, volunteers, safety, or community support, or whatever the need might be.
