Pat Duffy Carnegie Coaching Festival
Wed 22 March 2017, 17:00 – 21:00 GMT
An evening to celebrate the remarkable contribution Professor Pat Duffy made to sport coaching. Recognised internationally for his tireless efforts to highlight the role and value of coaching in wider society. Foregrounding participant and performer needs in building coaching systems that provide inclusive, lifelong opportunities for participation in sport and physical activity at all levels.
Reflecting some of the agendas that were closest to his heart, the Pat Duffy Memorial Carnegie Conversation provides an opportunity to explore and showcase how his visions for policy, practice and research are being realised today. Baroness Sue Campbell will deliver an opening address that captures the breadth and significance of Pat’s work.
A series of short presentations by researchers from the Carnegie School of Sport and leading practitioners from the Football Association, British Sailing and the English Institute of Sport will then illustrate how Pat’s ideas continue to influence research and practice in the fields of children’s coaching, performer development, inclusive coaching, coach development and professionalisation.
