The Leduc Ringette Association is very excited to connect you to an upcoming seminar being hosted by the City of Leduc. On Jan 22 & 23, Dr. Vicki Harber will be in Leduc to share her research on Coaching the Female Athlete. Full Event Details Here
Harber, an exercise physiologist, and former Olympian in rowing, is one of the leading academic voices with Canadian Sport for Life – a body seeking to improve the quality of sport and physical activity. Her paper for the organization, “The Female Athlete Perspective,” has been dramatically changing the way parents, coaches and physical education teachers think about girls’ healthy development as athletes. Harber’s academic career has been devoted to the study of female athlete and a lifelong love of sport.
One hallmark of a great coach is commitment to lifelong learning and continuous improvement. We strongly encourage ALL of our Ringette Coaches (Head, Assistant, and Aspiring) and Managers to attend this seminar. You will learn:
- key features of creating positive training environments for female athletes
- specific prevention strategies to develop and maintain the healthy of female athletes
- why girls and women stay in sport and leave sport
- practical tips for athlete retention in a performance environment.
The cost is only $25.
