Lecture Series Event

October schedule is set for 7th annual Dr. Bob Frederick Sport Leadership series at LC State

LEWISTON, Idaho – Discussions on various aspects of sports ranging from leadership to internships highlight the 7th annual Dr. Bob Frederick Sport Leadership Lecture Series, which will be held in October at Lewis-Clark State College.

In all, there are 13 presentations across seven days scheduled at various campus locations. All presentations are free and open to the public.

The lecture series honors former University of Kansas athletic director Bob Frederick for his lifelong commitment to teaching, coaching and athletic administration. Frederick served in a variety of sport leadership roles, many of them at Kansas where he participated as a student-athlete, coached, served as an athletic director, and taught classes in sport management. The speakers in this lecture series exemplify his commitment to treating people with dignity and respect and helping young people develop and achieve success.

Among the presenters this year are Dr. Cynthia Pemberton, president at LC State, Matt Dacey, a national staff instructor with the United States Soccer Federation, Ron Slaymaker, former long-time men’s basketball coach at Emporia State, and Chistine Bolger, associate director for coaching education with the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee. Pemberton will discuss “More Than a Game” to open the lecture series on Oct. 10 at 10:30 a.m. at the Williams Conference Center. Pemberton will discuss her book “More than a Game: One Woman’s Fight for Gender Equity in Sport,” which examines Title IX compliance and gender equity in sports during the 1990s at Linfield College while Pemberton was there serving as assistant athletic director, head women’s and men’s swim coach, a faculty member, and later as senior women’s administrator for athletics.

Dacey will discuss “Characteristics of the Leaders I Follow” on Oct. 16, while Slaymaker will have two presentations on Oct. 22, the first on “Help Enough People to Get What They Want and You Will Get What You Want,” and “The Master Skill.” Bolger will talk about “Team USA Coaching Education and Development” on Oct. 24.

Other discussion topics include careers in strength and conditioning, internships, disc golf, how to build career opportunities while in college, social media, dominating a niche market in sport, and leadership.

The lecture series is supported by the LCSC Sport Administration degree program. LCSC offers a BA and BS in Sport Administration as a co-curricular degree between the Business Division and the Division of Movement & Sport Sciences,
