JEOPARDY BOWL: CALL FOR TEAMS
The 13th annual Southwest Student Jeopardy Bowl returns and will be held at the Costa Mesa Hilton on Friday October 27th, 2023. All Universities and Colleges are invited to bring a team of 3 currently enrolled undergraduate students to answer questions on categories such as anatomy, bioenergetics, biomechanics exercise physiology, environmental aspects, cardiovascular physiology, sports nutrition, special populations, and ACSM guidelines. Faculty should identify a team of students who can work together in answering questions based on the categories. Each team is encouraged to bring students and faculty to watch and support their team, wear their school colors, and cheer them on to victory!
The format will follow the longstanding television show, Jeopardy. Single jeopardy questions will be easier than double jeopardy, and a final jeopardy question will be the most difficult. All questions will have a dollar amount associated with the answer, and the team with the highest total at the end of the night will be the winner.
The winners of the SWACSM competition will represent the Southwest Chapter at the Annual ACSM meeting in Boston, Massachusetts in May/June 2024 at the Annual Student Bowl Competition. The SWACSM winning team will also receive ACSM Annual Meeting registration (paid for by the National ACSM) and partial funds for travel, lodging, and food (paid in part by the Regional Chapter). Note that each University or College will be expected to contribute to a portion of the cost.
All Universities interested in competing must complete this form by 5:00pm PDT Wednesday, October 25th, 2023, to guarantee your spot in the competition. Although each institution in the region can submit the names for up to two teams, institutions are only guaranteed one spot. As part of the registration process you will need to have:
