The Role of the Athletic Performance Coach in the Team Sport Setting Webinar

This webinar will explore the role of the Strength and Conditioning Coach in the team sport setting. A team sport participant is more than simply an athlete. In this regard they must not only balance physical process but also, tactical acumen, technical proficiency and psychological composure all while operating in the complex social structure of a team environment. This webinar will explore decision making by the strength and conditioning coach in this complex environment including practical examples from an elite sport setting.
