Tara VanDerveer is an absolute legend in the world of basketball. She's a hall-of-famer, she's a 5X National Coach of the Year in College Basketball, she's won 3 NCAA Division I titles, she's been to 13 Final Fours, and she's won a gold medal with USA Basketball. Her awards and accolades are up there with just about any college coach, and she's the all-time leader in wins in women's basketball. However, you're going to find out pretty quickly that Tara does not really enjoy talking about herself and her accolades. She loves talking about her teams. She loves talking about the athletes that she's had the privilege of coaching. She loves talking about Stanford University, where she is currently the Head Women's Basketball Coach. But Tara is the real deal when it comes to humility. She's authentic. She's somebody who cares deeply about the world and basketball. She genuinely cares about the people she serves, and she really makes it about them.   Tara had a number of amazing insights during our conversation. Some of them include: “It really helps my energy during the year, that I can be all-in during the season, when I've had that great time on the lake in the summer” (7:55). “When you die, no one's going to say, ‘Do you wish you worked more?' I want to wish I'd played more” (10:05). “Work will always be there. You can always come back to it” (12:00). “Sometimes I think less is better” (13:00). “I have to pace myself. You only have so much tread on the tire” (13:30). “I want to really pick my spots of what I'm going to do, how I'm going to do it, and how well I want to do it” (14:30). “I just like being in the gym with our team” (16:30). “The things that keep me grounded are what's really fun” (16:40). “If I were in junior high right now, with all the basketball on TV, I'd probably flunk out. I just love basketball” (17:40). “I work hard at taking care of myself” (17:55). “I try to do things that are nurturing to me so that I can be effective with our team” (18:15). “I don't really think about [legacy] at all” (18:45). “The energy at Stanford and the people I meet there, that gives me a lot of juice” (20:25). “A college degree is a very valuable thing for women” (21:45). “I love coaching the quintessential Stanford student” (22:10). “I love the challenge of working at Stanford” (25:00). “The court is our classroom” (29:00). “I want to enjoy today” (31:10). “I'm not going to stare in the rearview mirror as I'm going forwards” (31:45). “Parenting and coaching are very similar, and they're both very similar to gardening. You don't just sit there and look at the garden. You water the garden, you weed the garden, you fertilize the garden” (38:00). “The world is bigger than just you” (39:20). “The thing that can really destroy us is greed” (42:00). “I like it when our team is happy for other people's success” (42:05). “I want our players to love playing at Stanford and love playing for me” (55:00). “I can look in the mirror and be happy with being myself… I can't try to be someone else” (56:35). “I'm a copier by nature, which I'm proud of” (56:55). “Being a person takes work” (1:00:10). “My job is to help them be the best they can be” (1:02:30).   Thank you so much to Tara for coming on the podcast!

Trustees and Presidents- Opportunities and Challenges In Intercollegiate Athletics
Athletic Departments Need To Ensure Their Athletes Are Safe-What Presidents Should Know About Off-Field Safety And Medical Care

Trustees and Presidents- Opportunities and Challenges In Intercollegiate Athletics

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 29, 2022 41:33


A nightmare occurred at the University of Maryland in 2018 when freshman football player Jordan McNair died of heatstroke after an offseason practice. The confluence of events caused this nightmare scenario—a warm, humid day with a heat index over 90 degrees; practice was suddenly relocated to another field because the designated practice area (the football stadium) was under construction; the workouts were started before ATCs arrived on site and were fully set up (including cold water pools), and the strength coach running the practice did not recognize the signs of heatstroke that McNair was demonstrating. That same year, I authored an op-ed in the Baltimore Sun about what may have precipitated this pressure placed on coaches, athletes and administrators-both financial and prestige. This situation can typify the unintended pressures that come as presidents and trustees try to move their institutions quickly up the ladder in college sports. The question all senior leaders should ask is: could something like this happen at my school? Today, my guests are two health care professionals who have seen college athletics from the inside, both as team medical professionals and now as administrators in the United States. Both represent the U.S. Council for Athletes Health, an organization dedicated to strengthening institutional education, consulting, compliance (with existing health care mandates) and support for the newly mandated Athletics Healthcare Administrator, now required under NCAA rules. Dr. Chad Asplund is a 20-year sports medicine practitioner at the professional, Olympic, collegiate and recreational levels. Dr. Asplund is the executive director of the U.S. Council for Athletes' Health, as well as a sports medicine physician and Professor of Family Medicine and Orthopedics at the Medical College of Georgia. Chad currently serves as the medical director for USA Basketball, and a team physician for USA Hockey and Georgia Southern University. He also is the past president of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, the largest physician-only organization for sports medicine physicians. Angie Beisner focused her career on the care and prevention of athletic injuries within collegiate organizations for more than two decades before bringing her extensive knowledge to USCAH operations in June 2021. Before joining the U.S. Council for Athletes Health, she most recently was the head athletic trainer at Ohio State, she was also named the lead athletic trainer for the USA U19 Men's Lacrosse team.

It was like rolling a rock up a hill” (13:15). “What made my transition to the NBA such a great match for me was because I was a ‘basketball person'” (18:35). “I worked very hard with my personal relationships in the league” (18:10). “In any line of work, [the quality of your personal relationships] makes or breaks you” (18:15). “Preparation and attention to details were hallmarks [for working with David Stern]” (21:10). “David Stern had this adage that ‘micromanagement is underrated'” (21:15). “I took the best of both of them” (23:30). “I try to be practical but visionary” (23:40). “I'm a much more mature, developed leader than I was when I took the job at the NBA” (24:40). “I did all these other things that, in their way, fortified my leadership skills” (26:20). “My pregnancy and maternity in the early years was one of the most challenging periods of my life” (27:40). “When I got pregnant, I was a unicorn in the office… I was working for people whose wives didn't work… They didn't expect me to come back” (28:00). “When I came back from maternity leave, I really had something to prove at the league” (28:30). “It takes a village if you want to be a working parent” (29:10). “It was part-time, but I made it part-time-plus. I threw myself into USA Basketball” (33:35). “I could have an interlude in my life where I could be more present with my daughters” (34:45). “My career has been totally unplanned… I don't know what my next chapter is” (44:00). “I'm serious, I'm competitive, I want to do well… but at the same time I'm a compassionate person, I care deeply about the relationships that I have with the many people in my life” (49:30). “If you're going to be successful in your field and fulfill the demands that are made on you as a leader, you have to have that expectation that you're going to make sacrifices” (51:20). “I think it's important to clear your head regularly. There's so much going on and you can't be on all the time” (52:50). “Sports is one of the great ways of bringing people together in our world… The power of sports is very real” (56:30).   Additionally, make sure to follow the Big East Conference on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

As an attorney, Val Ackerman can usually see both sides. But not on this topic. With bona fides that include an early Title IX basketball scholarship to Virginia, a law degree from UCLA, being tapped by David Stern in 1996 to help design the WNBA, sitting with Pres. George Bush at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 as the first female President of USA Basketball, and thoughts born of her current position as the Commissioner of the Big East, Val Ackerman is certain of one thing. The men and women should play the Final Four in the same city at the same time. She tells us why, along with theories about NIL and how the Big East offers value beyond money.

It's 1996, more than a decade since the NCAA has taken over women's college sports. Many of the association's brightest basketball stars are on Team USA, hoping to take home gold at the Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. But this team is more than just a team. They're an experiment to see whether it's worth bankrolling a professional women's league. While this is happening, women on the collegiate level are still fighting for equal standing for their programs and players. Some believe the NCAA is partly to blame for the rapid decline in women leaders and coaches in basketball.

Former Alabama State University director of athletics Jennifer Lynne Williams was announced on May 25, 2021, as the chief development officer of the USA Basketball Foundation. Williams will begin her duties on July 1. As chief development officer of the USA Basketball Foundation, Williams is responsible for all aspects of the USA Basketball Foundation, including developing a holistic fundraising platform to support various USA Basketball national team programs and youth and sport development initiatives. Named on Oct. 10, 2018, the director of intercollegiate athletics at Alabama State University, she previously served as Alabama State's interim athletic director and deputy athletic director for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 academic years. During her time at ASU, the Hornets experienced tremendous success, with athletic teams winning 43 Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) championships, three consecutive commissioner cups and two conference academic awards for the highest GPA under her leadership. Williams spent four years (2012-16) at North Carolina A&T State University as the associate athletic director for development and executive director of the Aggie Athletic Foundation. While there, Williams oversaw all giving initiatives for athletics, while overseeing the athletics marketing department. She also was the liaison between IMG Sports Properties and the department of athletics. In 2014, the Aggie Athletic Foundation was recognized as a model booster organization by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). Williams also worked at DePaul University as the assistant director of development for athletics (2009-12) and worked in development and marketing for Women Leaders in College Sports (formerly the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators). Williams was named the 2018 Women Leaders in College Sports Division I (FCS) Administrator of the Year and was selected by her alma mater, North Carolina Central University, as a 40-under-40 Class of 2016 honoree, recognizing young NCCU alumni who have made significant contributions in the arts, entertainment, healthcare, sciences, education, law, business, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, public service or government. A four-year letterman and two-year captain in women's basketball at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Williams began her professional career as a reporter for the Tar Heel Sports Network and as a production assistant for Fox Sports South. The Detroit native earned her bachelor's degree as a double major in journalism and African American history at North Carolina, and a master's degree in athletic administration from NCCU, where she graduated magna cum laude. In 2018 Williams was appointed to the NCAA Division I Council, where she served on the Football Oversight Committee as part of her council duties; and was an executive committee member of the National Association of Athletic Development Directors (NAADD). She also served on the Women Leaders in College Sports Board of Directors, the NCAA Board of Governors Committee to Promote Cultural Diversity and Equity, the Black AD Alliance, and the Black Coaches United Board of Directors. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/chefranjohn/support
