CHAMPS/Life Skills Program
The Blazer Bowl is designed to appeal to student-athletes' competitiveness. It rewards those teams who encourage and participate in personal development opportunities as well as building camaraderie between all Blazer teams. Each year, the Blazer Bowl will be presented to the team that demonstrates "championship effort and attitude" and the team that earns the most points toward the five commitment areas which reflect the UAB Championship Culture.
Each team earns points based on their success in the classroom, on the field, in the community, and through personal and career development. If an individual team, an individual student-athlete, or a small group of student-athletes participate in one of the components (outlined below) sponsored by other organizations they will also earn points for their team. For any opportunities sponsored outside of UAB Student-Athlete Development, the student-athlete(s) must report the activity to the Student-Athlete Development staff (Caitlin Callaghan) within one week of the event.
