“We’re trying to make it reasonable,” Kamphoff said, referring to the fees the center will charge. They’re offering varying rates, including standard rates for work with licensed sports psychologists or reduced rates for work with students.
In addition to the grand opening, the center is hosting the inaugural North Central Sport Psychology Conference. About 60 people had registered for the two-day event that will feature talks from a handful of sports psychologists from MSU, the University of Minnesota, the University of Minnesota-Duluth and other institutions.
Kamphoff said she didn’t know if the center would be holding a second annual conference. But the administration seems to be behind her efforts.
“It’s her passion and her heart that have been a big part of this,” said Doug Mayo, vice president for university advancement. “This center is unique across the country.”
