Established in 2015, the Alliance of Social Workers in Sports raises awareness of the ways in which social work practice can partner with and contribute to all levels and all segments of sports. ASWIS promotes a social worker in sports perspective that is grounded in social and economic justice, strength-based approaches, and person-in-environment frameworks. ASWIS encourages the full range of social work practice in sports, from case management and clinical services through advocacy and policy practice for every level and segment of sports.
ASWIS finalized its incorporation in June 2016 and become an official 501(c)(3) in March of 2017.
EIN Number: 81-3890412
Strategic Plan Goals
1. Provide a source of ongoing support for early career scholars who are engaged in scholarly activities (e.g., course work, dissertation, job market) that examine the intersectionality of social work and sport.
2. Maintain a depository of academic resources (e.g., articles, books, methodological expertise, grant opportunities). This is done through the ASWIS research consortium.
3. Offer a medium for collaboration on scholarly research studies, manuscripts, and presentations.
