Building Positive Clubs Conference
Sat 22 October 2016, 10:00 – 14:30 IST
Sport can help develop… resilience, self-confidence, self-esteem, social networks, and positive mental wellbeing. Sport Can Change Lives
The theme of the Building Positive Clubs Conference is “Sport Changes Lives” and the event will focus on the powerful role that sport can play in all aspects of life.
We will hear inspirational accounts from a number of prominent sports personalities who will discuss issues which are more common than some might think in today’s society. The stories they will share with us will explain how sport can help overcome adversity against all odds.
The conference will also highlight the benefits of positive coaching. More often than not sports clubs provide positive environments for everyone to enjoy but sometimes the win at all costs attitude and poor sportsmanship can have a negative impact applying unrealistic challenges and pressures.
Who Should Attend?
The conference is open to everyone, sports clubs, coaches, athletes/players, parents, teachers, community organisations and anyone interested in sports coaching and the role sport plays in developing positive mental well-being.
