What’s an online Child to Champion event like?

With online events, we aim to give you the same experience and access to experts as in an in-person event, without needing to leave your desk. So you can learn at your own pace, in your own time, and follow interactive exercises, and theory talks along the way.

Our online Child to Champion events are all around S&C and long-term athlete development. All of our sessions are packed with practical examples. You can also ask questions during dedicated Q&A time, and you’ll get all the session recordings too.

Are the online Child to Champion events worth it?

We’ve worked hard to ensure you can still get the most out of the online Child to Champion events from your own home.

Here’s what to expect:
• 2 days of talks from leading S&C practitioners and researchers
• Learn & share with other S&C professionals
• Practical and theory talks
• Live Q&A sessions
• Access to all the videos after the event for you to watch again
