National Sport Development Conference

With more people involved in active recreation and community sport, it is important that athletes have the opportunity to progress and achieve their ultimate performance level if they choose, or if we can encourage them to. To achieve their ultimate success in the performance space, investment in athlete development, coaching pathways, embracing the right technology, supporting daily training environments, ensuring the right facilities are available and developing club capacity are critical to success.

The National Sport Development Conference brings together organisations, key influencers and experienced personnel that are passionate about creating the best environment for an athlete. This includes challenging the status quo, exploring alternative options and looking at the commercial sectors options and international approaches to inspire advancements in Australia. Be part of the conversation for the next generation of successful athletes, coaches and training environments.
