Site Author with legendary Dr. John Wooden, former UCLA Basketball Coach
Daniel Frankl, Ph.D., With John Wooden, Ph.D.

I currently serve as associate professor of kinesiology and physical education at California State University, Los Angeles. I teach undergraduate and graduate level courses in Sport Psychology, Sociology of Sport, Motor Learning, and Fundamentals of Movement. I am a graduate of the Zinman College of Physical Education and Sport Sciences at the Wingate Institute, Israel (1973), The Nat Holman Coaching School at the Wingate Institute, Israel (1973, Track & Field; 1978 Olympic Gymnastics), SUNY Brockport, New York (1982, B.S., Physical Education), SIU, Carbondale, IL (1984, M.S. Social Psychology of Sport; 1989 Ph.D., Sport Psychology). My teaching experiences also include elementary and high school physical education, and 20 years of coaching and teaching at the college and university levels. I serve as a consultant for the Amateur Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles (AAF), and the AAF Rose Bowl Aquatics Center, Pasadena (since 1991), and as director of research for the SoftSport (Second Look for Soccer TM) corporation.

I am married to Sally Frankl, M.D. (Internal Medicine) and together we worship Avi born on 12-16-89, and Hannah born on 8-31-95.

Dr. John Wooden's picture was taken during the Spring of 1999 at UCLA, while guest lecturing in Dr. Tara Scanlan's sport psychology class. It was a great honour and delight to have met Dr. Wooden and to have had the opportunity to discuss the complex issue of sports programs in the academic milieu. Dr. Wooden's picture appears throughout this site with his permission. It is a tribute to a very special man and a great teacher.
