Saskatchewan Athletics provides assistance to one Performance Coach opportunity per year for their coaches. Those working towards their Performance Coach training and certification should email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about assistance.
2022 Sport Medicine and Science Speaker Series
Saskatchewan Athletics is hosting a Sport Medicine and Science Speaker Series consisting of 17 different online sessions. The sessions will cover many different topics such as mental performance, sports nutrition, strength and conditioning, RED-S, and female health.
All sessions will be held online via Zoom. Separate registration is required for each session. Sessions are intended to be for Saskatchewan Athletics members only (coaches, athletes and their parents/guardians).
Coaches will be credited with 1 Professional Development point for each session they attend. This is a great way for coaches to maintain their certification.
If you have any questions about the speaker series please contact Jamie Epp (email@example.com).
