Science on Tap, co-sponsored by GVSU and SpeakEZ Lounge, is an opportunity for conversation, debate and interaction between scientists and the public while drinking beer. Each month at SpeakEZ, a knowledgeable expert hosts a scientific discussion about current topics in the news such as ebola and the paleo diet. This is a great chance to exercise your academic interests in a casual setting while enjoying great food and adult beverages.

Title: Why Is The U.S. So Lousy At (Men’s) Soccer?

Speaker: Rob Deaner, Dept. of Psychology, GVSU

Location: SpeakEZ Lounge | 600 Monroe Ave. NW Grand Rapids 49503

Date: Thursday, November 14

Time: 8PM


Event Description:

The U.S. men and women are both highly successful in international sports competition (e.g., Olympics), yet only the women excel in international soccer. In this talk, I will quantify just how poorly the U.S. is at producing elite male soccer players and then explore possible causes of this phenomenon, drawing on research from history, economics, sports science, and psychology.
