Producing world-class performance requires numerous factors to align at a given point in time. Performance support teams for athletes and teams are now larger than ever, however, harnessing all of this knowledge and applying it to the athlete effectively is the key to success.
Harnessing the performance support team’s knowledge is not always an easy task but when it happens the results speak for themselves. Dr Kevin Currell will share his principles, experiences and reflections from over 10 years at the English Institute of Sport (EIS) and discuss the challenges that need to be overcome to make this happen.
Date: Wednesday 26th September 2018
Time: 15.00 BST
This webinar will give you a unique insight of the interdisciplinary workings of support teams behind the world’s best athletes.
