About Us

(A)Department History

The Taipei Physical Education Junior College was founded in 1968, and then in 1996 it became the Taipei Physical Education College. The college was merged with the Taipei Municipal University of  Education on August 1, 2013, to form the University of Taipei. In 1998, the School of Kinesiology divided its sports training department into 4 sections in an effort to fit with the developmental direction of the institution, to move towards more professional modern trends, and to accommodate the department to special needs in sports training education. The Department of Ball Sports is one of those 4 sections. Incorporating such ball sports as basketball, baseball, volleyball, badminton, tennis, table tennis, handball, soccer, field hockey, American football, softball, golf, bowling, and soft tennis in its curriculum, the Department of Ball Sports enrolls two classes of excellent student athletes each year. The department staffs 17 full-time faculty members who are professionally trained and deeply experienced in our department’s sports events, and who act as professional academic guides for our students in the sports field. All members of our faculty possess national-level accreditation in sports training as well as many years of experience in international competition. We are dedicated to sports training work and work alongside the Department of Sports Sciences and the Graduate Institute of Sports Training at the University of Taipei. Dedicating our efforts to effectively train athletes for competition in Taiwan, we raise the level of sports ability and produce athletic results for the glory of Taiwan.
