The fellow will work with the team to build rapport over time. There are no specific expectations or relationships we are looking for through the program. Each fellow will have their own way of building this rapport. Some fellows spend more time with their teams than other fellows, but all fellows benefit their teams. It is not necessary for the fellow to have knowledge of the sport for which they are a fellow. The fellow and team are paired to create a mutually beneficial partnership that builds strong relationships between student athletes, coaches, and fellows.
