Sports massage is designed to enhance
athletic performance and recovery. There are
three contexts in which sports massage can be
useful to an athlete pre-event, post-event and
injury treatment Pre-event massage is delivered
at the site to establish blood flow and warm up
the muscles Post-event massage serves to calm
the nervous system and begin the process of
flushing toxins and waste products out of the
body Post-event massage can reduce recovery
time. enabling an athlete to resume training
sooner than rest alone would allow.
Orthopedic massage involves therapeutic
assessment, manipulation and movement of soft
tissue to reduce pain and dysfunction.The focus
is on restoring structural balance throughout
the body to promote both prevention and
rehabilitation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions

Captain of the Roller Hockey Club, Eddie Rosenberg, is leading the way for Florida in the
Southeastern Collegiate Roller Hockey League. Rosenberg, a Junior Sport Management
major, has been with the team for three years as a forward. He leads the team with 41 I
points, but also serves as a defenseman, a position that his brother, Steven, also plays.
Rosenberg has also netted 27 goals this past season, securing him third place in Division
II Roller Hockey standings.The Long Island native claims that hockey is in his blood and
has been playing for the past 14 years, enjoying the speed and finesse it takes to play the
game. Rosenberg said he enjoys competing at the collegiate level while representing the
University of Florida, noting that the team has great chemistry on and off the rink.
AshleyCoudron,a Freshman sensation in the Bowling Club, looks to revolutionize
the sport on the University of Florida campus.Although she is a rookie on the
team, Coudron finished in the top-25 during three tournaments this past year,
including a 15th place finish among 284 bowlers in Indianapolis in February.To
put her skills in perspective, Coudron has the 18th highest rookie average in the
nation. In addition to her contributions in the lanes, club president Jeff Horowitz
also commends Coudron for stepping into the role of secretary, just months
after joining the team.The Sociology major said she began bowling at the age
of five with Minnie Mouse bowling equipment in a youth-adult league with her
father and has been playing consistently ever since. Coudron said what drives her
to the game is the strategy involved and that "few sports have as many complex
aspects that go unnoticed by an unknowing bystander." Since bowling does not
require speed or strength like other sports, Coudron appreciates how anyone
can participate and it levels the playing field because no one is really born with
the perfect skill set to perfect the game it is all learned.

Established in 1918,the UniversityYMCA purchased twenty acres of land and water at the north end
of Lake Wauburg to be used as a recreation center for the University of Florida student body.
In 1928, the University YMCA dissolved and the land was deeded to the University of Florida to
be administered by the Union. In 1936, Lake Wauburg (then Camp Wauburg) became a part of the
Union, and the transfer of the property to the University of Florida occurred in 1938. In 1939, a
recreation center and a small residence were built on the property. Today both are renovated and
currently in use.
Between 1962 to 1963, Student Government acquired what is currently known as Lake Wauburg
South. This is a 72-acre (30.2 acres under water) parcel of land, which the Athletic Association had
purchased from a private citizen in 1958. The Athletic Association had envisioned it as a retreat
facility and an area for team use, however no development of the land occurred.
Development of Lake Wauburg South began in 1982 with Student Government funding $225,000
through special request funds. Features of the South Shore include a 55-foot climbing wall and team
development course, two large pavilions and extensive waterfront decking and docks.
Currently, Lake Wauburg North Park and South Shore provide an outdoor recreational facility
primarily for student use.Almost 65,000 visitors use this unique recreational resource each year.The
history of Lake Wauburg has seen the development of a small portion of land used by the University
YMCA grow to one of the largest outdoor recreation centers in the Southeast. The area is now
primarily used for large group events, water skiing, disc golf and fishing and has been in continuous
use since 1985. Lake Wauburg is a unique part of the University of Florida college-experience.
Whether students visit the lake for outdoor leisure time with friends and family, peaceful studying or
alternative recreational options, Lake Wauburg is a cherished retreat where students can escape the
traditional campus life.
Each year the shores of Lake Wauburg
welcome more and more students. The
Department of Recreational Sports,
Recreational Sports Advisory Board
and the Division of Student Affairs are
developing plans for a retreat center
at the South Shore. The retreat center
would become the primary fixture at
Lake Wauburg for student leadership
groups and beach-goers alike.
