Physical training of students in our University has been carried out since its formation, since 1918. However, the first steps towards the formation of modern content and forms of physical education of students were made in September 1935, when the discipline "Physical culture" was introduced into the curriculum of the University (after the formation of the Department of Military Sciences and Physical Culture). Its first teachers were T. A. Osin, E. A. Khorosheva, and from the 1937/38 academic year – P. A. Pukhnovtsev. On March 8, 1948, according to the order of the USSR Ministry of Higher Education dated February 23, 1948, "On the organization of departments (independent courses) of physical education and sports in the universities of the Main Directorate of Law Institutes of the USSR", a course of physical education and sports was allocated from the military department of the Sverdlovsk Law Institute with subordination to its deputy director of the Institute for Academic and Scientific Work.

Teachers were appointed teachers of physical training of the military department V. D. Martyanov and N. S. Rudakova, senior teacher - V. D. Starovoitov, laboratory assistant - K. V. Trofimova. From the next academic year, five teachers began to work at the department, and in December 1949 A.V. Kilchevsky, later Honored Coach of the RSFSR in Volleyball, was elected head of the department. Later, the department was headed by: a participant in the Great Patriotic War, holder of three medals "Soldier's Glory" and the owner of a number of other state awards V.D. Starovoitov, M.F. Bogdan, V.I. Ignatenko (later Doctor of Juridical Sciences, Professor), Candidate of Biological S.G. Sesyunin, Candidate of Pedagogical Sciences A.P. Falkov, V.P. Vasyuk, Associate Professor V.G. Petrov, Honored Worker of Physical Culture of the Russian Federation V.I. Rogozin.

In January 1951, the Main Directorate of Legal Higher Educational Institutions of the Ministry of Higher Education of the USSR, and then the leadership of SLI, made important decisions aimed at improving the quality of physical education of students. Since that time, students with disabilities in health began to engage in physical training according to a special program, and for practically healthy students, according to medical control, optional classes in skiing and athletics were introduced twice a week for all study groups of 1-2 courses. These events served as a starting point in the development of sports at the University and targeted health-improving work by means of physical culture with students with various diseases. However, physical education classes were held only on the course of general physical training with the use of athletics, skiing, and sports games until 1963.

Since October 1963, the department was headed by V.I. Ignatenko, a graduate of the State Institute of Physical Culture of Omsk. From this time, the gradual introduction of specializations in sports into the educational process began. In the 1970/71 academic year, a creatively strong team of teachers was formed, each of whom was engaged in the development of "their" kind of sport. These are N. S. Rudakova (table tennis), V. I. Endeberya (athletics), V. G. Petrov (classical (Greco-Roman) and freestyle wrestling), V. A. Chernykh (boxing), A. p. Falkov (gymnastics), M. A. Georgiev (sambo), V. M. Lebedev (orienteering, tourism), K. A. Neganov (skiing), V.P. Vasyuk (basketball, handball), V.I. Terekhov (volleyball) - subsequently chairman of the Sverdlovsk Regional Council of the student sports society "Burevestnik", I.S. Berdnikov (rowing, skiing), G. S. Chernikova (skiing).

In the second half of the 1960s a sports club was opened at the Institute. Its chairman was one of the strongest athletes of the university, first-grader in handball, football, athleticsб and skiing Viktor Perevalov (later - head of the Department of Theory of State and Law, Rector and President of the University). From that time until 1998, the sports and recreation camp of the Institute "Olymp", located on the bank of the Glubochinsky pond in the area of Polevsky, Sverdlovsk region, worked. All its activities, from construction and repair works to mass sports and health, cultural and educational events, were provided by the Department of Physical Education and Sports.

Thousands of students of SLI-USLU, teachers and staff of the University, and their families gratefully remember their vacation in the camp: classes in sports sections, sports tournaments, match sports meetings with teams from Polevsky and pioneer camps, hiking trips to Azov mountain, Sokolinaya mountain, and, of course, the traditional joint (faculty, students and staff) preparation of a festive "table" in honor of the opening and closing of camp shifts, where everything took place in a friendly and democratic atmosphere, regardless of the age and status of the campers. A major role in the development of the camp was played by its chiefs: masters of sports of the USSR Associate Professor V. M. Lebedev and Professor I. M. Chemakin.

In the 1960s, the best athletes of the Institute were students, masters of sports of the USSR Viktor Vorobyov (champion of the USSR among students in classical (Greco-Roman) wrestling, later Lieutenant Colonel of the Ministry of internal Affairs), Igor Chemakin (champion of Russia among students in Sambo, after graduation – senior lecturer of the Department of Physical Education and Sports, later moved to the Department of Administrative Law, Doctor of Law, Professor), Nikolai Tarasov (winner of the USSR championship among youth and the world festival of youth and students in classical (Greco-Roman) wrestling).

Georgiev), orienteering (coach V. M. Lebedev). The University's teams in these sports were one of the strongest in the Sverdlovsk region. During these years, the winners and prize-winners of the All-Union and All-Russian tournaments became known in the Sverdlovsk Region and beyond: S. Bocharov, S. Ignatiev, M. Imanov, A. Medvedev, Yu. Strelnikov, N. Maltsev, M. Magomadov, Yu. Barabashov (all Greco-Roman wrestling); В. Размыслов (V. Razmyslov (free-style wrestling, judo, sambo); S.

At that time, the department repeatedly took the 2nd places in competitions-contests of the departments of the university for the organization of extracurricular work with students, and among the departments of physical education and sports of universities of the Sverdlovsk region - one of the leading places in terms of the level of organization of educational, scientific and methodological, mass health and sports work. Throughout its history, the department has systematically held various sporting events among teachers and staff, - competitions in cross-country skiing, volleyball, all-around GTO, bullet shooting, athletics crosses; organized sports sections. For many years, a volleyball group worked, which included teachers who were members of the combined sports teams of the Institute during their student years - B.K.

Zuev (then successively Deputy Prosecutor of the VerkhIsetsky and Leninsky districts of Ekaterinburg) and E. Bochkarev.

Within the framework of the tournament dedicated to the world-famous brilliant Ural gunsmith, three times Hero of Russia, Doctor of Technical Sciences, General M. T.

For this purpose, the University made a special medal-coin dedicated to M. T. Kalashnikov and the AK machine gun of the 1947 model.

Also, on the initiative and presentation of the department, students-athletes are encouraged by the Academic Council and the Rector of the university for excellent academic success, sports life, and active participation in the patriotic movement. In 2015, in honor of the 70th anniversary of the Victory of the Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War, the best students visited the Hero City Minsk and the Hero Fortress Brest. The system of organization of physical culture and sports at the University, and this is both the educational process and mass sports work during extracurricular hours of students, allows the University’s teams and individual athletes to successfully compete in external competitions.
