Drug Free Sport Presents Sport Exchange Summit 2016!
We are gearing up for our first education conference and are thrilled to share our dynamic program featuring sport industry professionals and subject matter experts. From our work, we know that bridging effective communication and collaboration between all of these parties is essential for providing optimal care to athletes AND supporting organizational success.
The Sport Exchange Summit not only provides current information on topics related to athlete care, but also encourages the opportunity to learn and network from other sport professionals. Attendees will be a multidisciplinary crowd of sport dietitians, athletic trainers, strength & conditioning coaches, team coaches, team physicians, sport psychologists, athletic administrators, and others who directly impact athlete performance and well-being.
This week we are excited to highlight three of our speakers!
sport psychology effectively folds into his experiences as a professional athlete (signed by the San Diego Chargers in 1996), award-winning strength and conditioning coach, and current work at the University of Missouri to address university programs and partnerships available to athletes of all backgrounds and ages. Given the recent media coverage on racial tensions at the University of Missouri, Ivey and his colleagues are making positive strides to create change on campus, and have much to offer on this important topic affecting sport organizations around the country.
