Chris Visscher

Chris Visscher (1950) was a Physical Education teacher and trainer at FC Groningen football club. He studied Educational Science at the University of Groningen and gained his PhD at the same university in 2000 with a thesis titled 'Deafness and sport; on the effects of being deaf on sports achievements, physical fitness, competence in sport and social acceptance'.

Since 1990 he has been working for the Human Movement Sciences discipline group in Groningen, of which he became Chair in 2007. He is Professor by Special Appointment in Youth Sport via the NOC*NSF, with particular emphasis on talent development and the relationship between sport and education. In addition, he is an external advisor for the Netherlands Association for Adapted Sports, for the top-level sector of NOC*NSF, for the Hanze Institute for Sport Studies and for the Institute for Sport Studies at HAN University of Applied Sciences.

Visscher is also one of the directors of the new Sport Science Institute Groningen (SSIG). The institute focuses on bringing together fundamental and applied sport research in Groningen and developing education/study trajectories within sport.
