NATIONAL STUDENT-ATHLETE DAY

April 6, 2013 celebrates the 26th year of National STUDENT-Athlete Day.

“National STUDENT-Athlete Day (NSAD), celebrated annually on April 6, provides an opportunity to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of student-athletes. National STUDENT-Athlete Day seeks to honor those student-athletes who have achieved excellence in academics and athletics, while making significant contributions to their communities. Organizations can celebrate NSAD by presenting student-athletes with award certificates, planning special ceremonies and presentations, connecting with young people in the community who support their athletics teams and more.”  (Wikipedia)

NATIONAL STUDENT-ATHLETE DAY HISTORY

National STUDENT-Athlete Day was created by The National Consortium for Academics and Sports (NCAS).  NCAS is an ever-growing organization of colleges and universities.  They have evolved in response to the need to “keep the student in the student-athlete.”  The NCAS was first established by Richard Lapchick in 1985 at the Center for the Study of Sports in Society at Northeastern University and was relocated to the University of Central Florida in 2001.

We're not a sports family. He likes to ride his bike around the neighborhood, but that's as close as it gets to sports.

My youngest did wrestling last year and baseball since he was 6. This year he wasn't interested in any of that. 

My DD was in Marching Band for 4 years. That's a lot of hard work so I think it counts.
