The JSF is delighted to host its second 'on Island' conference. Again leading specialists in the field of sport, health and fitness are being brought together by the JSF to explore and educate about youth sport, movement, and the tackling of sedentary behaviours and related disease. The time to improve our sport and health is now!

Last year the conference welcomed delegates from many different sectors involved in sport, health, PE and fitness and as such created a movement that has not stopped since!

We aim to provide all delegates with the most up to date knowledge and practical tools to change sport, health and fitness forever. The conference will also provide an excellent opportunity to network and connect with other likeminded individuals in the field.

This is certainly one not to be missed. Jersey is a unique destination, not only for sport but due to all of the scenery and landscapes that it boasts. To maximise the experience delegates have previously combined their
learning and a short holiday in this beautiful island.

This session is the first of its type to be held in Jersey! You will have your opportunity to 'rant' or 'rave' about key issues in sport, exercise, health and PE in front of key industry leaders and politicians.

During her final year Liz was introduced to Margaret Whitehead who acted as her dissertation supervisor and was introduced to the concept of Physical Literacy. Unknown at the time, this introduction to Physical Literacy would go on to form the foundation of her professional teaching practice and research.

Liz graduated in 2010 and began teaching at Devizes School, Wiltshire. Whilst at Devizes Liz held a number of positions of responsibility, including School Sports Coordinator, Projects Coordinator, KS3 Coordinator and eventually went on to set up the Devizes Schools Sports Network, a sports partnership aimed at supporting primary schools within the local area, helping them to achieve high quality physical education that is underpinned by principles of Physical Literacy.

During this session the JSF team will unravel the confusing and complex world of exercise prescription in sport and exercise. In a workshop based setting, the team will provide you with a simple tool for choosing the exact movement exercises for your specific sport and how to apply it.

Included will be the whole progression from general low level physical skills to highly specific and advanced exercises, ensuring you do the right things at the right times, and get the most out of athletes while ensuring they remain healthy. The session ends up in a huge lightbulb moment when delegates realise you are able to understand where everything fits see the whole system, and can instantly make a bigger impact on your athletes/clients by getting rid of the non-essentials. The information contained in the session is exactly what the JSF Team use to programme all athletes, and it is the first time it has been made public.
