argely credited with developing the University of California men’s gymnastics program into one of the nation’s finest, Barry Weiner led the Golden Bears to national championships in 1997 and 1998. He has had a total of 10 Top-5 national finishes, adding another spectacular season with a fourth-place finish in 2009. He has also coached 14 NCAA individual championships in his 18 seasons at Cal. The most recent individual championship was last season, when Evan Roth won the title on still rings. Weiner coached Tim McNeill to five individual national championships – three NCAA titles on pommel horse and two on parallel bars. Weiner was the co-recipient of the 2009 Honor Coach Award, which is recognized as the most prestigious coaching award in collegiate gymnastics. In 2008, Weiner was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Coach of the Year after leading the Bears to a 7-4 regularseason record and a third-place finish at the MPSF Championships. The results of Weiner’s hard work and

He has also coach Cal student-athletes to 14 individual national championships, including Evan Roth’s 2009 title on still rings and Tim McNeill’s five championships.

dedication first paid dividends in ’97 when he was named National Coach of the Year after leading the Bears to a perfect 17-0 regular season and the team’s first NCAA team title since 1975. Weiner then outdid himself the next year, as Cal swept through the entire ’98 season without a loss en route to its second-consecutive team championship. Following that season, Weiner was named Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Coach of the Year for the third time (he won the award for the fourth time in 2004) and National Coach of the Year for the second straight campaign. Including the 16-1 overall record of 2004, Weiner’s career record stands at an impressive 223-67-1 (.769) spanning over the last fifteen years. Weiner took the reins of the men’s gymnastics program in 1992 after Cal’s worstever 1-18 season in ’91. Under his guidance, Cal rebounded to post a 15-13 dual meet record, placing third in the conference and reaching the NCAA Regionals, where the team managed a seventhplace finish. Six individuals from that squad qualified for the NCAA Championships that year, including All-American Jason Bertram. Before arriving at Cal in September 1991, Weiner maintained a lengthy association with the United States Junior National Gymnastics Program. Over an 11-year period, he has coached 15 Barry Weiner cheers on the Bears at the 2008 NCAA Championships.

*** indicates score was adjusted for new rules implemented prior to 1995 season. Before that time, the top five individual scores from each event were used to compute team totals. For scores with (***), the fifth-best score was subtracted from each event’s original total so that it is comparable to the current system of using the top four individual scores.

Berkeley and the Bay Area

BERKELEY

B

erkeley is a part of the San Francisco Bay Area major metropolitan area of approximately 7.2 million people. The region is one of the most beautiful in the world and includes the major cities of San Francisco and Oakland, as well as Berkeley, home of the world-renowned University of California. Just south are San Jose and the Silicon Valley, home to many of the world’s high-tech companies. The Bay Area also lies within easy driving distance of the high Sierra resorts of Lake Tahoe and Yosemite, the Monterey/Carmel peninsula, the world famous Napa wine country and the spectacular Mendocino Coast. Everyone knows San Francisco, a.k.a. “The City,” from the numerous photographs, movies and television shows that capture its magic and beauty. It is a city built on a series of more than 40 hills, offering panoramic views of every kind. The hub of a ninecounty complex and the financial and insurance capital of the world, San Francisco has a resident population of just over 800,000 and is situated on a 46.7 square mile peninsula bounded on

the west by the Pacific Ocean, the north by the Golden Gate strait, and from north to east by the San Francisco Bay. San Francisco has been named the world’s top city twice and the top city in the U.S. in 18 of the last 19 years by Condé Nast Traveler. The San Francisco Bay is spanned by two landmarks, the Golden Gate and San Francisco-Oakland Bay bridges, and graced by four islands: Alcatraz, Angel, Yerba Buena and Treasure. The area is easily navigated by car, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), bus or ferry, making it easily accessible to all.

SAN FRANCISCO

Frank Gore

Located across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco, Oakland is a city of over 400,000, jam-packed with exciting attractions, stimulating arts and an ideal climate. Oakland’s charm exceeds its man-made wonders, as its tumbling hills, vast forests, hiking and riding trails, beautiful lakes and numerous parks provide a natural escape for those who prefer nature over an urban environment. Berkeley, just a 12-mile drive from San Francisco, is situated on 17.7 square miles with a population of just under 103,000 people. A study in contrasts, Berkeley is a small town with a big city character. With its world-renowned university, global population and rich diversity of cultural arts, Berkeley reflects and affects the rest of the country.

Sports fans can see it all in the Bay Area - professional football (San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders), professional basketball (Golden State Warriors), professional baseball (San Francisco Giants, Oakland Athletics), professional hockey (San Jose Sharks) and outstanding collegiate competition (six Division I schools).

The University of California

Simply the best

T

here is no other way to aptly describe America’s top public university. There is no other way to describe one of the elite academic settings in the world – especially one that also includes one of America’s most successful athletic departments. The University of California blends the best of all worlds. Overlooking the scenic San Francisco Bay and ranked as the nation’s top public university by the U.S. News and World Report, the flagship campus of the state of California also features an athletic program that annually finishes among the leaders in the Directors’ Cup standings, which rates the overall success of America’s collegiate athletic departments. Cal attracts what many believe to be the finest applicant pool in the United States. The university features a diverse student body population. The University of California offers 351 degree programs, and 35 of the school’s 36 graduate programs are ranked among America’s Top 10. Cal’s 35 programs among the Top 10 is No. 1 among all universities in the country, as is its 32 “distinguished” programs, as rated by the National Research Council. The library is ranked third in the country, as judged by the Association of Research Libraries with 10 million volumes in 32 campus libraries. The faculty features seven Nobel Laureates, 135 members of the National Academy of Sciences, 28 MacArthur Fellows, 74 Fulbright Scholars, four Pulitzer Prize winners and more Guggenheim Fellows (359) than any other university in America.

the future...

Student-Athlete High Performance Center

The Student-Athlete High Performance Center, now under construction, is expected to be completed prior to the 2011 season. The 142,000 square foot facility will house locker rooms, offices and meeting rooms, as well as areas for strength and conditioning, sports medicine, nutrition and academics for football and 12 other intercollegiate sports. The building is the physical manifestation of Cal’s High Performance Initiative, a unique program that challenges student-athletes to reach their level of optimal performance through strategic and efficient application of resources. Using cutting-edge technology and a multidisciplinary approach, the cornerstone principles of the HPI are communication, integration and information.

Memorial Stadium Renovation

Memorial Stadium, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful settings for collegiate football, was originally constructed with funds donated by alumni, faculty, students and fans. At the time, Robert Gordon Sproul, who became UC president in 1930, said that the stadium “stands in simple dignity, beauty and strength.” Now, plans are being finalized to renovate the 86-year-old structure, starting with the west side, to create programmatic, game day and fan amenity improvements while respecting the architecture and character of the historic structure. Donors have demonstrated their backing of the privatelyfunded project through their commitment to the Endowment Seat Program (ESP), a first-of-its-kind effort in major college athletics to secure the financial future for the Athletic Department. ESP will provide a long-term, sustaining endowment that could grow to $1 billion over the next 30 years and will be used to fund annual operating needs for Cal’s studentathletes.

Academic Achievement ACADEMIC GAME PLAN Comprehensive Program Focuses on Golden Bear Academic Achievement

W

hile the California football program has produced school records of six straight bowl appearances and four consecutive bowl triumphs as part of 59 wins overall in the last seven years, the mission for Cal football is: To EDUCATE and GRADUATE all football student-athletes with a meaningful degree that will support their future successes in whatever field they choose. Cal’s unique “Academic Game Plan” (AGP) is a program established by head coach Jeff Tedford to ensure success in the classroom as well as on the field. AGP, under the direction of Cal’s director of student-athlete development, consists of players meeting regularly with coaches and counselors to review coursework and assignments. Players are given an “Academic Game Planner,” which they are required to keep up-to-date. The point of AGP is to approach academics just like a game, with a plan. The players would never go into a game situation without studying film, having a plan, practicing and preparation. Tedford and the Cal staff want student-athletes to approach academics the same way.

Athletic Study Center Staff

Of the 18 players signed in 2002 in coach Tedford’s first class, 15 (83%) graduated within five years. A total of 20 players over the past 10 years have earned graduate degrees while playing and 10 of those players who earned graduate degrees have gone on to play in the NFL, including Adimchinobe Echemandu, Tyler Fredrickson, Scott Fujita, Nick Harris, L.P. Ladouceur, Alex Mack and John Welbourn. For the 2005-06 academic year, the Cal football team achieved the highest score possible (1000) in the Academic Progress Rate (APR). This past year, Cal posted a multiyear score of 970, second among Pac-10 schools. In addition, 74 student-athletes on the football team have earned Pac-10 All-Academic honors in the Tedford era.

Athletic Study Center

Tutorial Program

Advising Programs

The Athletic Study Center, which is housed within the Division of Undergraduate Education, is the tutorial and academic support program for the nearly 900 student-athletes at Cal. Centrally located in the Cesar Chavez Student Center, the program provides a spacious and comfortable area for quiet study, individual classrooms for tutorials, and a computer lab for word processing and required course work.

The tutorial program promotes and enhances students’ academics skills and progress by providing individual tutoring, group workshops, study groups, credit courses and intensive special programs. The Athletic Study Center has between 50-60 tutors on staff per semester to guarantee that students receive the best possible support. Tutorial sessions are offered at night to enable student-athletes to receive help after practices when they have more time to devote to studying.

The advising programs offer a broad range of services to meet the unique needs of Cal’s student-athletes, which include assistance in understanding and complying with university, college and NCAA requirements, the development of time management skills and the resolution of personal issues unique to student-athletes.
