Sports Is Education

The Sports Is Education Foundation was founded in 2003 by Chicago-Kent sports law professor Eldon Ham and local sports media producer Terry Poulos. We have partnered with Loyola University's athletic director John Planek, the IHSA, and CPS to present an annual one-of-a-kind symposium for high school coaches and administrators.

This is a creative and dynamic event, a fantastic forum for coaches, athletic directors, and anyone in the education field. What a stimulating way to address the broad spectrum of problems.

Many small colleges, junior highs, and high schools lack the resources in dealing with issues like drugs, hazing, gambling, parent interaction, club sports, and even coach qualification and management. The Sports Is Education Symposium will allow school administrators, coaches, and faculty from schools throughout Illinois to share cutting-edge topics in the fields of sports and education. This symposium will also promote professional development, networking, and the exchange of ideas among administrators, coaches, and advisors.

Our symposium is specifically designed for school administrators, principals, athletic directors, and coaches. The symposium will address emerging topics in the fields of education, law, and sports, focusing on eligibility, Title IX, training of coaches, athletics management, and much more. Additionally, our symposium is CPDU accredited, and IHSA, IESA, and CPS approved.

The Sports Is Education Symposium is a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas, network, and promote the valuable life lessons that can be learned through sports.
