The Department of Kinesiology and Brock websites have a number of resources available to you. We recommend you take some time to familiarize yourself with these site below as well as the links and buttons in the left column as part of your self-guided orientation.

The Faculty of Applied Health Science (FAHS) Mentorship Program is a volunteer-based experience for students seeking a leadership role in the Brock community.

  • Mentors will have an opportunity to network and create meaningful connections, which promotes personal and professional development and empowerment of the next generation of leaders.
  • Mentees will gain leadership and communication skills through the guidance and support from upper-year students to aid in their academic, personal, and professional development.

The 2020/2021 Kinesiology/Physical-Education Branch team representatives are:

  • Aaron Wexler, fourth-year Kinesiology student, Founder and President of the FAHS Mentorship Program and FAHS Student Association
  • Larry Bucher, fourth-year Kinesiology student, Kinesiology Leader of the FAHS Mentorship Program and FAHS Association
  • Kendel Hutcherson, fourth-year Kinesiology student and the Senior Branch Head of Kinesiology/Physical Education for the FAHS Mentorship Program and FAHS Student Association
  • Jayden Metade, third-year Kinesiology student and Junior Branch Head of Kinesiology/Physical Education for the FAHS Mentorship Program and FAHS Student Association
  • Tamar Kritzer, third-year Kinesiology student and Junior Branch Head of Kinesiology/Physical Education for the FAHS Mentorship Program and FAHS Student Association

The Kinesiology Students’ Association (formerly Kinesiology Council) was founded in 2015 to bring a feeling of community and togetherness to the Department of Kinesiology at Brock.

The mission and vision of the KSA is to provide students with opportunities to enhance their academic, professional and social development. The Association does so by planning activities, conferences, and more for students of the department to attend in order to build connections and learn a little bit more about the outstanding opportunities Brock Kinesiology has to offer!
