SPORT FOR LIFE – TALENT DEVELOPMENT: A SLOW COOKER NOT A PRESSURE COOKER! – CULTIVATING AN ENVIRONMENT FOR LEARNING WEBINAR
In this webinar we compare current priorities against an appropriate mix fun, safety and success, through which athletes can thrive. Perhaps, it is time to challenge the norm “ this is what we have always done”. This session will bring together experts (researchers and practitioners) to discuss the athlete experience and our approach to development and learning.
How do our current systems of :
- Talent development and Talent Identification contribute to youth development?
- Selection and competition ensure learning and growth?
- Practice provide enough flexibility for a young athlete to thrive acquiring the skills
- for sport, and overall well-being.
Join us to discuss – It is a slow cooker!
