Over the last few months we’ve been working hard behind the scenes developing our education network as we try to build on the successes of last year’s programme of events.
We’ve spent quite a bit of time talking about and establishing a clear philosophy for the network and the events we’re going to run. Something that we were clear on very quickly is that we want it to be a network for coaches that are committed to sharing ideas.
From the events last year, it was clear that we had some super smart people sat in the audience from some of the leading sports organisations in the UK (England Rugby, Manchester City FC, Liverpool FC, EIS, WRU and the Scottish Rugby Union to name just a few) and some extremely sharp up and coming coaches too. I probably learnt almost as much from our attendees as I did from our presenters!
So whilst we are committed to providing opportunities for you to connect with and learn from leaders in the field of S&C from around the world, we also have developed a new element which we will be launching at our first live event of 2016 – The Future Leaders Programme.
What is the Future Leaders Programme?
The Future Leaders Programme is designed to provide members within our network an opportunity to raise their profile in the industry by providing them with a platform to showcase their current work in the field of strength and conditioning.
At our LTAD Conference on the 9th & 10th April which will be announced very shortly we have saved a slot in the programme for a ‘Future Leader’ to step up and present alongside our keynote presenters at the conference to showcase their current work. That line up currently includes Dr. Rhodri Lloyd, Dr. Ian Jeffreys and Dr. Mike Young.
We are now inviting applications from S&C coaches/researchers/lecturers that would like to be considered to present. To apply please contact James Baker by email on firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
Current role & background in Strength & Conditioning (education, experience etc.)
Proposed area/topic to present – detailing what you will cover and how it would be delivered (theory or practical)
**The subject must relate to the theme of Long Term Athlete Development in line with the rest of the conference**
All applications will be reviewed and considered by our panel, and shortlisted applicants will be expected to present to the panel via Skype/Hangout as part of the final selection process.
The successful applicant will receive a full conference package including access to the evening VIP dinner, as well as having their presentation showcased through the Proformance S&C media channels.
If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
