Physical Education Update is not a huge multinational corporation. Along with a few part-time writers and regular contributors (you are always welcome to contribute, by the way), here are the people who prepare your weekly fix of the latest practical information, research, ideas and tips and coaching cues.
Dick Moss, Publisher/Editor (B.Sc., University of Wisconsin)
Dick Moss, your full-time researcher and editor, has a long history of providing information to physical educators and scholastic coaches. Starting in 1984 to present, he founded and published the Coaching Digest newsletter; the Physical Education Digest magazine, eJournal and website; and now the PE Update website and its companion web resources, PE Tips of the Week and PE Update Blog.
Dick has coached track and cross-country running for over 30 years. He is currently the head coach of the Laurentian University women's track and XC teams, and the founding coach of Sudbury Ontario's Track North Athletic Club. In his capacity as club coach, he works with students at the elementary, high school and university level. He is a level-three coach in the distance and hurdle events.
He has also coached a boys' elementary school basketball team and girls' high school flag football team. Approximately two centuries ago, Dick was an All-American 800m runner at the University of Wisconsin and member of the Canadian National track & field team. In high school, he played football, basketball and badminton. He still plays old man's basketball on Tuesday nights and whack-it-and-hack-it golf in the summers.
