Shot Clock to gold: Athletic Disparities

Shot Clock to gold: Athletic Disparities

Contact: Ms. Frances Bosch, bosch@roanoke.edu

Mr. Jacob Tyree is an athlete, coach, and founder of the Roanoke Stars Wheelchair Basketball Team.  Mr. Tyree has coached wheelchair basketball in South America and Japan.  Mr. Tyree will speak about the joys and challenges of Accessible Sports.  Given that NBC has committed to 'several hours' of Paralympic coverage in association with their coverage of the Olympic Games this summer, Paralympians will finally receive the recognition they deserve as masterful athletes.  

This event is open to the College community and will be of particular interest to students interested in athletics, the business of Sports, and careers in human health.
