The University of Technology Sydney held their annual Human Performance Symposium this week, which featured presentations from three NSWIS experts.
NSW Institute of Sport Cycling Track Endurance Coach Katie Slattery, Wheelchair Track & Road Coach Louise Sauvage and Physiologist Ned Brophy-Williams presented A step by step approach to developing world champions: integrating coach expertise and sports science to 100 attendees.
The symposium focused on hot topics and controversies in high performance sport, including the translation from theory to practice, the athlete-coach relationship, women in sport and busting common myths.
Attendees had the opportunity to hear about the latest research in training sciences, athlete monitoring, performance analysis, skill acquisition and decision-making and sports medicine in high performance sport. The event was aimed at coaches, strength and conditioning staff, sports scientists, PE teachers and other professionals working with high performance athletes.
The symposium included presentations by leading international researchers and practitioners currently working with high performance athletes at all levels, as well as UTS staff and students presenting work completed with industry collaborators.
