Alex Newby, who is also associate director of the Vancouver Institute of Philosophy for Children (VIP4C) and currently Director of Grassroots at London TFC in London, Ontario is exploring the connections between philosophy and sport, specifically soccer, in his pursuit of his master’s at the University of Alberta. He is interested in looking at how concepts like affordances and embodied affectivity can be employed in the context of soccer. His goal is to use these insights to develop new approaches to coaching and pedagogy. For example, he is specifically interested in the role of emotions when guiding attention in specific environments. To that end, he has focused on helping to develop camp curricula that use narrative as a way in which to engage emotion as well as intellect.
