Paddle Australia High Performance Coaching Conference on the Gold Coast

Paddle Australia (PA) is pleased to be able to offer a High Performance Coaching Conference forum opportunity to the paddling community.

Set to be held at the Mantra Twin Towers in Coolangatta, QLD from 5-6 November, the conference will cover the topics of coaching, community sport, skill acquisition and performance science, with applications across Canoe Slalom, Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe.

PA’s National Performance Director Kim Crane is looking forward to welcoming those interested to the inaugural Coaching Conference.

“Our High Performance Program at Paddle Australia is designed to support our Australian athletes to become the world’s best paddlers and people,” Crane said.

“We appreciate the critically vital role that coaches play in an athlete’s growth and development, and wanted to create an opportunity for people to come together to learn from a range of different experts in the High Performance Programs workforce, while also growing their own networks whilst learning from one another”.

“This is an opportunity for us to share key learnings, experience and knowledge areas with those interested; whilst investing in forming stronger relationships after what has been a very busy international season for our staff and athletes.

“The High Performance Coaching Conference is targeted at supporting our paddling community who will have the opportunity to hear from some of Paddle Australia’s top coaches and performance support staff on how they prepare athletes to compete at the highest level,” Crane said.

The conference will provide insights into world-class coaching and performance science, with the intent to facilitate and promote discussion aimed at those who work with athletes aspiring for progression and high levels of performance.

The conference is free of charge to attend, with attendees only required to cover travel and accommodation costs.

Registrations are now open for the High Performance Coaching Conference, and close on Sunday 23rd October. Register to attend the event HERE
