11:30 AM to 11:55 AM | Contemporary ways of identifying and developing athletes.

Most sporting organisations offer a lot of programmes to young athletes as a way to develop them into elite level sport. Often these pathways mean forcing young athletes to focus solely on one sport for most of the year. However, both research and experience suggest that several athletes have made it to the elite stage through a variety of pathways and experiences. Listen to Coaching Lecturer Rob Gambolati explain how some of the programmes sport organisations offer are often not the best for either the sport or the athlete.

Host: Rob Gambolati
