SPAD knows the way to San Jose!!

The SPAD 4th year Field Trip is in the San Francisco area this week to deliver consulting projects to various professional and amateur sport teams. Headquartered in San Jose, the students and professors arrived late Saturday night after a very long travel day that started with a bus ride from Toronto to the Buffalo airport, followed by a flight path from Buffalo to Phoenix to Los Angeles and finally on to San Jose.

After finally getting a night of sleep, the student teams were up early to start their practice presentations in front of the panel of judges – professors and graduate students. This process took up most of the day and into the evening as the groups continued to fine-tune their presentations.

Today the hard work finally pays off as the first group will be off to present to the San Jose Earthquakes this afternoon – pictures and story to follow. On Tuesday, the trip will swing into high gear with presentations to the Oakland A’s, Golden State Warriors and Stockton Thunder.
