Speedworks has a reputation of hosting some of the best minds and practitioners across professional sport. We bridge the gap between theory and practical application with the goal of creating effective performance environments and maximising transfer from training to performance. The current climate in evidence-based practice and sports science can be complex and confusing. There is a range of information being shared across social media, online blogs, peer review journals, published books and online courses. All are competing in the sharing of information but rarely do we come across resources that clarify the process of bespoke application within the sports environment. This is further illustrated in a digital era where it is increasingly easy to collect “data” whereas the challenge is in interpretation and subsequent intervention within a multi-disciplinary program.
Our speakers are carefully chosen individuals who have synthesised the complex world of sports science into their training principles. They have established their “outside the box” philosophies within elite performance environments, often going against the grain of their sports cultural constraints in order to establish new trends or standards of practice. They have a clear “logic led” training philosophy and are able to verbalise and adapt it to the variety of challenges that occur within the performance environment. “Tell me, I’ll forget. Show me, I’ll remember. Involve me, I’ll understand” Chinese Proverb
