Overview

The China Champions Program (CCP)

CCP Logo

To foster an exchange of culture, education and sport, the University of Minnesota annually hosts a cohort of Chinese Olympic and world champion athletes and coaches as part of the China Champions Program (CCP). Led by the U’s School of Kinesiology, in collaboration with Beijing Sport University and supported by the China Scholarship Council, CCP is a unique, global collaboration that provides mutual benefits for Chinese athletes and University faculty, staff and students.

During the year, participants will attend specially designed courses in the School of Kinesiology, including academic seminars, workshops and English as a second language classes. Beyond the classroom, athletes will visit Minnesota cultural sites, become acclimated with the Twin Cities area, as well as take tours of University and local professional sports team’s stadiums, arenas and training facilities.

Local business and government leaders will also meet with the athletes to give them a behind-the-scenes look into international corporations, government and the American culture. Each of the Chinese participants are continuing their education as part of a master’s level graduate program with Beijing Sport University, the top sport university in China.
