The American Sports Institute serves humankind through sport, physical education, and wellness. We view these aspects of life as personal and social transformative practices that bring forth the human spirit through the integration of physical endeavor and mental discipline, and thus as ways of fulfilling our most precious resource—the human potential.
The American Sports Institute is dedicated, in particular, to returning sport to its rightful place of honor in the arts, humanities, and sciences by examining the full spectrum of sport, physical education, and wellness through these branches of learning. Not bound by any particular ideology, the concepts and lessons derived from observing and engaging in sport, physical education, and wellness provide the principles by which the Institute operates. In these contexts, the Institute uses this examination and the principles and practices that work in sport, physical education, and wellness to address personal, social, and international issues.
The American Sports Institute is committed to enhancing the quality of life for all people, and to making its findings widely available. We share knowledge with all who seek it, with spectators as well as scholars, with those who wish simply to participate in and enjoy sport, physical education, and wellness, as well as those who seek to attain the heights of athletic and physical performance.
The American Sports Institute envisions a time when sport will return to its rightful place of honor in the arts, humanities, and sciences, and when sport, physical education, and wellness will assume more integral and respected positions in the educational enterprise. For it may well be that sport, physical education, and wellness, when approached in appropriate ways, may provide the best possible path to personal enlightenment and social transformation in this age.
