In May 2019 I was asked to speak at the TASS National Conference in Birmingham. The conference focused on developing a holistic approach to supporting dual career athletes (athletes balancing high performance sports careers alongside academic studies).
My presentation (PHYSICAL PREPARATION OF ATHLETES WHILE WORKING IN DUAL CAREER ENVIRONMENT) drew upon my experience working with a wide range of athletes in diverse environments. I focused on four main areas and the key messages from my presentation have been condensed into a series of infographics by the clever people at TASS.
2. The athlete is front and centre...not the support staff!
3. Creating Change
4. Optimising physical preparation
The infographics are being released over the coming weeks so when they're ready I'll post a link to each one here for you to download.
Here's the first one that looks at how to create a healthy performance team.
