- Sport Science is NOT Rocket Science
Conference Presentation: Sport Science - Keeping the message SIMPLE.
One of the major criticisms of sport science is that the message is poorly communicated. Too often coaches and players are given data that is difficult to understand and ineffectively presented. If we are to advance the field of sport science we must communicate effectively so that our message is understood and utilised.
After this presentation conference participants will:
- Know about issues in communication in high performance sport
- Have learnt effective communication strategies
- Know how to give the best service to players, coaches and management
- Tuesday, 22 October 2013, 3PM – 4:30PM AEST (UTC +1000)
