Huffines Institute for Sports Medicine

With a $2.5 million endowment, the mission of the Sydney and J.L. Huffines Institute for Sports Medicine and Human Performance is threefold: to facilitate cutting-edge research in Sports Medicine, to contribute to better practice and development in Sports Medicine, and to help the public understand the science behind sports medicine and human performance. These missions work to create an active interchange of information and research findings among strength and sport conditioning coaches, athletic trainers, health and wellness coordinators, clinicians, scientists, and the general public.  As part of its “better practice” mission, the Institute is the lead founding partner and home of the Texas A&M Coaching Academy.
