Department of physical education

Chair of the department:

Yevgeni Kulinkovich, PhD., Associate Professor

The department head (since 1994) is Yevgeni Kulinkovich, PhD., Associate Professor, the author of popular scholarly books on physical education, manuals and articles, a participant of over 50 national and international conferences on the issues of physical education, history and sociology of sports.

The department's faculty and staff include 52 members (of which 49 are full time): 3 associate professors, 29 senior instructors, 19 assistant lecturers, 8 lab assistants. Among them are: 1 merited coach of Belarus . 11 refrees of international and national categories, 1 master of sports (international category), 1 merited master of sports, 23 masters of sports.

The department's history goes back to 1949. It was headed then by a young graduate of the Belarusian Institute of Physical Education Anatoly Artemov. Physical education became a regular discipline, and qualified coaches-instructors contributed to the sports activities of the University. Soon afterwards, there appeared our own sports grounds, gym hall and cross country ski lodge. Especially popular among the students were gymnastics, cross country skiing, volleyball and basketball.

In 1954 the department was headed by the first in Belarus master of sports in gymnastics, War vetran V. Piko, who was designated for the position by the BSSR Committee for Sports and Physical Education. In 1956, the first student sports competitions were held in the republic on 24 sports. The then Institute ranked 6 th at that time, with the female volleyball team coached by V. Popova becoming the champion. The following year the university's team coached by I. Tenin was awarded a silver medal in the BSSR championship.

In 1960, there started a new phase in the department's history, with a sports-recreational camp “Economist” opened at lake Naroch . It's impossible to imagine the students' summer vacations without hikes, competitions, traditional Neptun's feasts. Soon tarpaulin tents were replaced by summer houses with hipped roofs, but what still remains in place is the camp's orientation at active vacation and rehabilitation of students. The “Economist” camp was recognized the best one in the former Soviet Union for seven years running! A great credit here goes to the department's faculy V. Piko, M. Sundukov, V. Shiryaev, A. Yermakov, G. Ladutko, and others.

The highers accomplishments of the 1970-80s are associated with the new department head V. Sokolov. The honorary GTO sign of the UUST Sports Committee was awarded to the Institute in 1979, with personal awards received by V. Sokolov and senior instructor V. Mendelev.

Back in 1970, there were 13 assistant lecturers at the department, and in 1980 their number grew to 38 faculty members. World and European champions were students V. Pesnyak (sambo wrestling) and V. Romanovski (rowing). The free style wrestling team was the strongest among higher schools of Belarus for 13 years running. Among the champions were also the teams of shooting, ping-pong, orienteering, and volleyball. Quite significant progress was accomplished by handball players.

In 1990, the mini-soccer team (coach – V. Piletski) was second in the first Byelorussian championship and qualified for the USSR championship. The following year this team became the Republic's champion among the universities and ranked first in the USSR Student Games.

Since 1994 the department has been headed by Ye. Kulinkovich, its activities having been reoriented to forming and meeting the students' sports needs. The growth of physical education's importance as a discipline is due to the improvement of the competitions' organization, popularization of sports and theoretical background of PE classes.

It has become a tradition to hold special competitions. Aerobics competitions attract especially large audiences and fans.

There have been revived sports meetings summarizing the results of the perennial sports competitions of the BSEU and representations teams' performances in the Students' Games of Belarus. As many as 70 sports events are held annually. In the academic year 2006-2007 there were 67 of them with 3890 participants. The BSEU teams are very successful at city and national competitions. Among the team members are: masters of sports (international category) – 7; masters of sports – 27, candidate masters of sports – 35; members of Belarus ' national teams – 39.
