Youth sport seminar

Dr Sam Elliott will deliver an Athlete Education evening seminar at Flinders University on 17 February 2020 aimed at parents, coaches and sport leaders, following the success of the Youth Sport Summit late last year.

Titled ‘Enhancing youth sport and athletic development: Evidence-based advice for parents and coaches’, seminar topics will include:

  • strategies to decrease the risk of sport dropout
  • current perspectives on early diversification versus early specialisation
  • enhancing parental support in the development of child expertise
  • building confidence and resilience in youth athletes
  • evidence based strategies for attracting and retaining girls’ sport participation

Targeted to parents and leaders across all levels of youth sport (elite, talent-ID, youth and community), it’s expected to be a popular event at the beginning of the 2020 sporting season, so early registration is advised.

Where: The Studio, Bedford Park, Flinders University

When: 6:00pm to 8:00pm, Monday 17 February 2020
