greenspun.com : LUSENET : APA Division 47 Exercise and Sport Psychology : One Thread

I am looking for information on Sports Psychology programs that area offered through distance learning. Would like to hear from anyone actively involved in any programs now. Would also like to hear any thoughts on difference between degree in sports psychology or counseling and value for career work in working with athletes.

thank you.
