Development of student sport in Russia as an example of a major student association of the United States of America NCAA
When a Russian athlete enters higher school, for him, as a rule, sport takes a back seat, and then completely disappears from his life. To avoid this, many Russian students enter or are transferred to an American university. There they continue to play sports and get an education. The question arises: what is fascinating to offer Americans the Russian athletes, and why Russia is losing its young and promising citizens? Today, we are short in this deal.
Virtually every sane applicant gives aware of the fact that his chosen university will be at least 4 years of his native home where he will not only acquire knowledge and communicate with Professor Emeritus, but also to make some free time and participate in various university activities. In addition to all incoming wants not only to become part of the ―big family‖, but also to try to establish itself as a bright and fun personality is not without talent. In our case, it is a talented athlete. Further, there is one of the most important components when choosing a university is the financial condition of an athlete. Many Russian citizens simply are not able to pay for their further studies in local universities. It is associated with a significant increase in the prices of domestic education. In this case, the United States of America extend their –helping hand‖, not only Russian athletes but also many foreigners who find themselves in this, the same position.
In the U.S. there is a management organization NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association), through which national universities and colleges set the rules in all matters relating to inter-university sport at the national level. NCAA now includes 977 universities and 287 provisional members and is the largest and most well-known association. NCAA develops rules regarding recruiting-process; financial aid, scholarships, television and advertising rights, and sets academic standards for incoming athletes to universities. To put it in accessible language, students who have athletic ability and good grades can be given sport-scholarship; fully or partially pay for their college education.
In Russia, there is NGO RSSU (Russian Student Sport Union), which, unfortunately, is still in its infancy. Let‘s hope that the Russian Student Sport Union, participating in meetings, roundtables and other events dedicated to the development of student sport in the Russian Federation, will make positive changes in this area at the state level. Meanwhile, about any financial support for student-athletes from higher schools can be no question.
Continuing the conversation about the benefits of the American system of collegiate sports, it should be noted that the athletic career of a student will only seek up. Throughout the school year, student-athletes, or as they are called in the U.S. just athletes, will participate in intercollegiate competitions, the outcome of which will be the final race to win championships NCAA. Daily training and classes at the university will require considerable effort from the athlete whose remuneration will be a lot of pleasant experiences, good spirits to communicate with interesting people, and at the end of the path a diploma of higher education a prestigious American university.
Thus, more than 600,000 students choose their further education in the United States. About 4 % of all students receiving higher education in America are foreign students. In general, according to UNESCO institute for Statistics in 2007, 52, 5 % of Russian students studying abroad, of which 11 % in the U.S. In conclusion, the above figures indicate a trend towards student mobility in Russia, which is not good, since almost half the sport and the Olympic pool just leave the country. Therefore the main task of this work is to try to understand the national system of student sports and opportunities and to adopt American methods as far as possible.
