Our Aims

    Incorporating track & field, gymnastics, cycling, weightlifting, shooting, archery, and tug of war in our athletic scope, our department (the first department in Taiwan to focus on competitive athletics) works to meet the modern world’s needs in athletics education and training. The majority of our athletic contests are single-participant sports, sports which allow athletes to achieve their personal best with limited influence from the performance of other competitors. Sports such as shooting, archery, and weightlifting (by weight class) are open to a wider variety of body types and thus provide Olympic athletes with more opportunities for winning medals. We use teacher education programs to encourage and provide opportunities for continuing education and research, and we give scholarships opportunities for exceptional athletes to encourage them to enroll in our department.
